FDA approves treatment to relieve pain during intercourse for postmenopausal women

The Food and Drug Administration recently approved Intrarosa as a treatment for women who experience dyspareunia, or moderate to severe pain during sexual intercourse.

Dyspareunia is a common symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy, which often occurs in women who have already undergone menopause.

Intrarosa, developed by Queben, Canada-based Endoceutics, is a once-daily vaginal insert.

The product represents the first FDA-approved treatment to contain the active ingredient prasterone, according to a press release on the agency's website.
