In Campbell’s mind, though, it comes down to choice. Since she wasn’t part of the flibanserin clinical trials, “I don’t even know if it would work for me. But I’d love for it to be approved so I can try it, and see if it works.” But even if flibanserin gets rejected once again—or even if it gets approved and Campbell (who was introduced to me by the drug manufacturer) finds that it isn’t the cure-all she was hoping for—there’s been one positive outcome: The debate over FDA approval has created a more open conversation about female sexual dysfunction.
