Hi there Judie33019!

According to the article I found on the BBC's website, it will be
available shortly in the US and within two years in the United

Exactly how long "shortly" will be is anybody's guess but here is the
exact quotation taken from the news article mentioned above:
"(...) Manufacturers Procter & Gamble are hoping to launch the patch
in the US shortly and in the UK within the next two years. (...)"

P&G's Intrinsa is scheduled to launch in (probably late) 2004 with
Cellegy's Tostrelle, and BioSante's LibiGel to follow:

"Advertising Age reports that Procter & Gamble is going to spend $100
million promoting a "transdermal testosterone patch" dubbed Intrinsa
that is designed to get women more interested in sex - assuming, of
course, that it passes late-stage clinical tests that lead to approval
by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)."


"That said, we have to wonder why P&G is going to spend $100 million
in advertising the launch of this product to women. We think all it
really has to do is tell a couple of guys, and trust us, men will find
a way to get Intrinsa into Christmas stockings all over the world.
(And if the thing gets approved in mid-summer, well, we'll find a way
to distribute this stuff.)"
