Libido pills claiming that they’re an ‘all-natural supplement’ to boost women’s arousal have been found to contain illegally prescription-only substances, Australia’s drug regulator warns.

According to the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the Libigirl capsules contain sildenafil - the prescription-only substance and active ingredient found in male erectile dysfunction product Viagra.

Libigirl also contains the prescription-only medicine and active ingredient tadalafil, found in a similar product Cialis.

The capsules’ labels and the website promoting the pills did not show these prescription substances.

The TGA said the pills posed a serious risk to health and are urged to stop taking them and take the products to a chemist for safe disposal.

The TGA will work with the Australian Customs and Border Protection Services to stop future shipments of the supplements entering the country after it found Australians were buying them online.
