Maybe the Hormone of Love Needs To Be Applied Not Injected!

Oxytocin is a peptide hormone produced in the hypothalamus section of our brain and most women know it as a medicine that is used to bring on contractions. But it has been called the hormone of love as well. So in a new study they looked at whether the hormone of desire could produce better sexual function as well. In the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm in women with symptoms of vaginal atrophy such as vaginal dryness, pain, itching, discomfort and bleeding during intercourse were treated with vaginal oxytocin for seven days. As with treatments such as estrogen, Osphena, and the MonaLisa Touch treatment there was significant improvement in the health of the vaginal tissues including more of the healthy superficial cells rather than the atrophic basal cell layer. This was a well tolerated treatment and with this study of just one week there were no significant side effects either. It is still a medication with potential systemic effects however, and most women when asked would rather not have another medication if there is a good alternative such as the MonaLisa.
