PT-141 (Bremelanotide) for Women

PT-141 (bremelanotide) modifies sexual brain processing in women with low sexual desire.

Vyleesi, approved in 2019, is only available as a subcutaneous injection yet some do not want to use the injection because of fear of needles (needle anxiety) or inconvenience. A nasal spray or lozenge may be an option for females unable to use the injection.

PT-141 (Bremelanotide) for Men

The mechanism of how PT 141, (bremelanotide) works in men with erectile dysfunction (ED) or low sexual desire is more understood than how it works in women for sexual dysfunction. It is a peptide that works differently than other drugs for ED so can be tried where a male has not responded to other ED therapies. PT-141(bremelanotide) binds to melanocortin receptors in the brain to increase arousal and desire.
