Increased libido is a sign that something is working.

My mom always says, if something sounds too good to be true, it usually is. And while my inner 15-year-old hates to admit she's right, I have to confess, this saying is usually spot on.

So when I caught wind that researchers recently found that libido patches not only didn’t work, but may compromise the long-term safety of their users, I wasn't surprised.
