Zapping TOKLES increases a woman's sexual desire

Up to half of women suffer from female sexual dysfunction (FSD) as they age, according to figures

Zapping on women's ankles could give them a much needed boost to their libido in middle age, a promising study suggests.

Up to half of women suffer from female sexual dysfunction (FSD) as they grow up, figures show.

The common condition leaves women with a diminished sex drive and may even rob them of their ability to achieve orgasm.

But the new breakthrough, tested on nine women with FSD, offers hope for a cure and brings scientists closer to the Holy Grail of a female Viagra.

The team at the University of Michigan already proved that their technique worked on mice and decided to increase their scientific efforts.

Each woman received 12 half-hour sessions once a week of electrode stimulation for the study, published in Neuromodulation.

Or they received the zap near the tibial nerve in one of their ankles, the same one they gave the mice, or in their genital area.

One of the women involved in the study, a 53-year-old without a name, described the experience as a "strange sensation of pressure vibration."

But she admitted that you'll get used to it & # 39; He added that he eventually brought a book to read during his 30-minute sessions.

Eight of the women revealed that they found it easier to get aroused, had a more natural lubrication and had more intense orgasms after zapping.

WHAT IS FEMALE SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION?

Up to half of women suffer from female sexual dysfunction (FSD) as they grow up, figures show.

The common condition leaves women with a diminished sex drive and may even rob them of their ability to achieve orgasm. It can also cause millions to have trouble waking up, or even cause pain during stimulation.

Sexual problems often develop when their hormones are constantly changing, such as after having a baby or during menopause, says Mayo Clinic.

Because the symptoms can vary greatly, there are several forms of treatment that aim to address the root cause.

Doctors often recommend patients adopt a healthier lifestyle, use a lubricant or device or seek advice. But sometimes they recommend a variety of hormonal treatments if they think they may have a hormonal cause.

Dr. Tim Bruns, who led the experiment with the women and was behind the previous rats trial, called it a success.

He said: In a variety of clinical studies, if you get a 50 percent improvement in symptoms, you can consider a successful response.

"We had four participants that met or exceeded that threshold." One participant even admitted that the treatment worked for her in an interview.

She told the research team: "I'm not 100 percent back the way I was, but I can have orgasms again and they're very good."

It is thought that ankle stimulation works because the nerves that travel to the foot overlap near the spinal cord with those that go to the pelvic organs.

Dr. Bruns revealed that the overall improvement in FSD was similar to other promising drugs currently under additional investigation.

However, he and his team have requested larger tests of their form of electrode stimulation to ensure that the results accumulate.

Dr. Priyanka Gupta, who participated in the study, said: "This study presents an alternative method to treat FSD that is not pharmacological or invasive.

"Through studies like this, we can better understand female sexual arousal and offer treatments for a disorder that has very few options."

This year marks 20 years since the small blue pill, Viagra, provided an instant solution for men struggling to achieve an erection.

However, despite their efforts, scientists have so far failed to produce a successful pill to help women feel more cheerful.
