You Will Be Able To Buy "Female Viagra" In Canada In 2018

Making sex great again.

A Canadian pharmaceutical company is preparing to manufacture a “female viagra” that could be on the market by next year. 

Endoceutics, which is preparing to open a new production plant in Quebec, is awaiting Health Canada’s approval of Intrarosa, a type of steroid that, when administered to female genitalia, reduces symptoms of menopause that can make sex painful.

Basically, Intrarosa makes sex great again for some menopausal women. Or, at least, that’s what the drug advertises. 

The founder of Endoceutics, the company that produces the applicators (or “vaginal inserts”) needed to administer Intrarosa, says that the drug will be approved in Canada by the close of 2017, reports JdeM

And when it does, the company is expecting a major increase in production. Apparently there are over 3 million menopausal women in Canada who could be using Intrarosa, a fairly significant consumer pool. 

Already approved by the American Food and Drug Administration, Intrarosa was also recently approved by European Medicines Agency. As already mentioned, Health Canada hasn’t approved of the “female viagra” yet, but given these other approvals, it seems likely. 

In the U.S., female viagra costs about $25/month and doesn’t have any significant side effects. The drug doesn’t use estrogen.
