Researchers say a hormone drug best known for sending pregnant women into labor may help couples regain their spark.

Researchers say Oxytocin allows humans to connect with one another. They simply give people little squares that dissolve under the tongue once a day.

Oxytocin therapy is getting rave reviews.

"My wife is one of the patients, and she says that she feels like a normal woman again. The results are wonderful," said Frank Seekins, a marriage counselor.

A one-month supply of Oxytocin costs less than $100. It is only available by prescription.
