Five-minute blast from a LASER boosts women’s libido and enhances their orgasms, scientists find
- The study found that the fractional CO2 laser enhanced a woman’s sexual function
- Device creates microscopic wounds in the vaginal tissue that stimulate collagen
- This year’s research found that more than a third of women in the UK were not interested in sex
A pain-free laser used for just five minutes can boost a woman’s libido, scientists have found.
In one study reported in the Journal of Lasers in Medical Sciences, scientists examined the effect of the fractional CO2 laser on a woman’s sex drive.
Researchers found that the device, which causes small wounds in the vagina, not only helped the sexual function of menopausal women, but also increased the number of orgasms they experienced.

The results of the study come just months after scientists discovered that more than a third of women in the UK were not interested in sex.
In the new study, scientists compared the effect of the machine with regular hormonal creams in 50 women who went through menopause
Scientists found that the fractional CO2 laser increased collagen production and increased blood flow by creating microscopic wounds in the vaginal tissue.
They also found that when the laser was used, libido increased by 45 percent and arousal by 56 percent, while vaginal creams could only increase libido by 30 percent.
London general practitioner Dr Suren Naidoo told The Sun: “Menopausal women who suffer from dryness are not always willing to use HRT. Finally we have a real solution. ‘

In January, researchers at the University of Glasgow conducted a survey of 12,132 women in the UK and asked them about their libido and attitudes towards sex.
About 34 percent of women admitted not to have sex, while the same was true for only 15 percent of men.
Women also revealed that they had a hard time getting aroused, had trouble with orgasms, and found it difficult to enjoy sex.
During the study, the participants were asked about their experiences with STDs, unwanted pregnancy, forced sex, their physical enjoyment of sex and their attitudes about it.
Overall, 47.5 percent of women were considered to have ‘poor sexual health’, including emotional experiences and physical problems or illness.
In comparison, the rate was only 17 percent among men. The research is published in the medical journal BMC Public Health.
WHY DO SOME PEOPLE HAVE LOW SEX SCRIPTURES?
Low sex drive is known as a loss of libido.
Previous research has found that it affects nearly half of all women, and many men, at some point in their lives.
It is often related to relationship problems, stress or fatigue, but can also indicate an underlying health problem.
Sex drive varies from person to person, without the libido being ‘normal’. However, if it affects your relationship, it may be worth seeking help from a family doctor or psychosexual therapist.
- Relationship problems – such as becoming overly familiar with your partner, poor communication, or trust issues
- Sexual problems – including erectile dysfunction or vaginal dryness
- Stress, anxiety or depression
- Age – sex hormones drop during menopause. Low libido can also occur due to side effects of medication or mobility problems
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding – can cause changes in hormone levels, exhaustion, or changed priorities when people focus on their child
- Underlying health problems – such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes
- Medication – including antidepressants and medicines for high blood pressure
- Alcohol and drugs
