Scientists are developing a pill which could boost women's libido and reduce their appetite.<br>
The hormone-releasing pill has so far only been given to female monkeys and shrews who displayed more mating behaviour and ate less.<br><br>
The team from the Medical Research Council's Human Reproduction Unit in Edinburgh believe a human version could be available within a decade...<br><br><a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6606927.stm" target="_blank">http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/6606927.stm</a>

that was exactly my thought<br><br>

Why do they always think people are overweight because they eat too much? I probably eat less than half of what skinner people do. My metabolism is shot. Suppressing my appetite is just going to make it worse.<br><br>
What they should do is teach girls the life long consequences of skipping meals in school health classes.

Hello? I don't have any appetite as it is now, the last thing I need is for something to ELIMINATE it.<br><br>
Now, the hornier part, I wouldn't mind. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

What you want to bet it'll be covered by insurance?<br><br>
I have to say that as I lose weight I do get more horney - I don't know if it's because I feel hotter or my metabolisim gets so high that I actually have energy for sex. Either way - if they put something in a pill that makes one more horney - that could push me over the edge.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment">

It certainly sounds appealing, but you just know there's going to be some nasty side effects coming to light a few years from now.

my thoughts exactly. my gut reaction was "sign me up!" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> but, i don't want to be an experiment for anything!<br><br>
i too get waaaay more interested in all things playful when i'm skinnier. it's always been that way.

I'm so sick of the idea that you can just take a pill to cure all ills. What about looking into the underlying reasons rather than a quick fix? WHY would a woman have low libido? What could cause it? WHY would a woman have problems losing weight?<br><br>
Before anyone jumps all over me, I understand there are situations which call for medication.

Thyroid problems. But if you go look at the thyroid thread you would see that people are having a very hard time getting doctors to diagnose and treat the problem. It bring in so much MORE money if they simply treat the symptoms.

But they would lose money for all of the drugs used for treatment of ADD, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, depression, high cholesterol, obesity, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, insomnia, and all of the other things thyroid problems are misdiagnosed as.<br><br>
They won't give all of that up for a prescription for thyroid meds that only cost $20 a month!!!

LOL I meant those are questions women and doctors can ask themselves rather than take a pill to rid a woman of those symptoms. But I'm glad you posted this <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
