Event includes Hors d’oeuvres and Discussion on Flibanserin and Other Sexual Health/Relationship Topics for Women

September 7, 2015 (San Diego)-- With FDA approval of the new libido drug for women – flibanserin – women finally have options. This is the first FDA libido drug approved for women, despite the fact that Viagra was approved for men 17 years ago.

San Diego women are invited to attend “Sex in Our City” seminar to learn more about flibanserin (to be marketed as Addyi), as well as what else on the horizon for women in terms of dealing with low sex drives, sexual health in young women and pre- and post-menopause, bedroom secrets to enhance your relationship, hormone treatments and alternatives, and other topics.

“Sex in Our City,” San Diego's most popular sexual health event for women, will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 20, and includes Sex in the City-themed appetizers, dessert table and mocktails. Hosted by Alvarado Hospital, “Sex in Our City” will be led by world-renowned expert Irwin Goldstein, MD, and sex therapist Rose Hartzell, PhD, EdS.
