PT 141 (Bremelanotide)

PT 141 Treatments

What is PT 141?

Good question. PT 141, which is also called Bremelanotide, is a peptide that helps treat sexual dysfunction in both women and men. PT 141 is used to help increase sexual desire in both sexes without some of the symptoms of Viagra or Cialis in men.


Scientifically speaking PT 141 isn’t naturally produced in the body and is created from the hormone called Melanotan 2 which uniquely enough is thought to create darker skin pigmentation or a “tanning” effect. It’s affects the melanocortin receptors as a nonselective agonist.

Some have used it as a way to get a natural looking tan without the damaging effects of the sun (there are some that say it’s not used in sunless tanning products because it would cause too much sexual arousal or intense sexual desire in those who used it for sunless tanning purposes).

What is PT 141?

If you live in the Boston area, why would you use PT 141?  Both men and women would use PT 141 to increase their sexual desire.  Some women experience a significant decrease in libido during menopause and are looking for a way to boost their sexual desire.  PT 141 would be used to increase their libido.  Men would use PT 141 for similar reasons as well as to regulate their sexual function.  If you are experiencing a decrease in sexual desire or function you may be interested in the benefits of PT 141

How is PT 141 used?

PT 141 is injected subcutaneously (or SubQ) with a small insulin like syringe.  SubQ means injecting a small amount into a fatty area of your body with a very small needle.  Men and women who use PT 141 are sometimes instructed to use it one hour before anticipated sexual activity and the effects can last up to 72 hours.  Generally a dose would be around 2mg.  However, an authorized medical provider would prescribe an appropriate dose for each of their patients based on their medical estimation including medical history, current medications, symptoms, etc.  You should never exceed your prescribed dosage or take without consulting a qualified physician who would prescribe for you.
