Lasofoxifene Effective for Dyspareunia

May 10, 2005

Dyspareunia is a significant problem in postmenopausal women. A recent study at George Washington University found that up to 92% of sexually active women reported moderate or severe symptoms. Forty percent of women cited dyspareunia as their most bothersome problem associated with vaginal atrophy. A recent Phase III trial showed that lasofoxifene can significantly improve the symptoms of dyspareunia as well as increase bone mineral density (BMD) in postmenopausal women.
