WOMEN LOW LIBIDO HELP
According to the Cleveland Clinic, 43% of women report sexual dysfunction - having problems with sexual response, desire, orgasm, or pain. Low libido (drive for sexual activity) can result from diabetes, low blood pressure, depression, unhappy relationships, and antidepressants. Hormonally, lower estrogen levels after menopause (when most women’s menstrual periods stop and they can no longer bear children - around age 51) lead to decreased blood flow to the pelvic region that leads to less genital sensation.
Per the International Society for Sexual Medicine, 1 in 10 women have HSDD (hypoactive sexual desire disorder) which means low sex drive. Health expert Jennifer Wider says that entrepreneurs are currently working to discover the female equivalent for “Male ED” where drugs target a women’s neurotransmitters and chemicals in the brain to increase sexual desire. The potential side effects of existing drugs are nausea, dizziness, fatigue, drop in blood pressure, and fainting when consumed with alcohol.
Cindy Eckert, CEO of Sprout Pharmaceuticals, was inspired to create the first “female viagra” from speaking with hundreds of women suffering from low to non-existent sex drives. Cindy says “I learnt that a lot of these women are in healthy, loving relationships: there's just this one piece that's not working, and that's starting to tear away at the rest of it. Because when things break down in the bedroom, they're often also breaking down at the breakfast table and in other profound ways...reading “Fifty Shades Of Grey” and “buying sexy lingerie” won’t solve low libido.” However, there is currently no “female viagra” pill that guarantees increase in sexual drive for women.
Women can increase their dopamine by hugging your love partner more, getting sufficient sleep, losing weight, stressing less, and exercising.
