Osphena worked pretty well. However, I gained huge amounts of weight on it almost over night! Therefore, I am not continuing the medication. They need to state weight gain as a side-effect.

Comment:
Its been not yet 3 weeks for me on Osphena. I called my dr. today and he said to give it a week or 2 more to see if its working. I am going to give it the full month. Maybe I am just impatient but if after a month I don't feel more lubricated down there and if my sexual desire doesn't increase at least a little I'm switching to Duavee.
