Professor Susan Davis from Monash University is leading a Phase II study to test the effectiveness of the nasal spray.

'We have previously shown that for women with low sexual interest, testosterone therapy not only improves sexual desire and arousal, but also enhances a woman's ability to reach orgasm.'
