Almere-based research institute wants to test the pills on 1,200 women in the phase three trials, which are the last stage before a pill can be brought onto the market, the paper said.

Researchers have developed two pills. The first, called Lybrido, is a combination of testosterone and Viagra. This pill will be used by women who are not interested in sex, the Volkskrant said.

The other pill, called Lybridos, is a combination of testosterone and anxiety drug buspirone. It is for women who block out sexual desire for various reasons, according to the paper.
