There are tons of medications for treating male sexual dysfunction, but what about women? Can they rely on something effective and safe? Fortunately, several years ago pharmaceutical regulators started to approve remedies intended for treatment of female sexual disorders. Scientific involvement in studying this issue continues to grow.

What’s Causing the Condition?

Healthy women usually have healthy sex drive. But when emotional problems and physical disorders appear, female libido may also suffer. Factors that may dim sex drive include:

  • psychoemotional stress, including stressful environment in relationship
  • depressive disorders and other psychical problems like anxiety
  • hormonal disorders that are caused by pathological fluctuations in levels of different hormones
  • going through female menopause (which cause such symptoms as nervousness, trouble sleeping, depression, etc., so naturally, sex desire diminishes)
  • other sexual problems like pain during sex, which hinder desire to have intercourse
  • intake of some medications, one of side effect of which is libido deterioration, these include antidepressants, oral contraceptives, medicines for treating high blood pressure (hypertension)

Well, let’s analyze the most known and popular meds for combating sex-related disorders in women.

Flibanserin (Addyi)

This medication is intended for the use by premenopausal women who suffer from sexual disorders, namely generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) or premenopausal hypolipidemia. It influences reactions with participation of hormones and neurotransmitters, thereby providing beneficial effect. Flibanserin was approved several years ago but haven’t gained much popularity since its approval. Cases of this situation may be different, probably women don’t want to visit a doctor to get a prescription, probably they don’t wanna use it due to sometimes insufficient effectiveness and a considerable potential of side effects.

Vyleesi (Bremelanotide)

This is the newest medication for treating sexual desire disorders in women. Like Flibanserin, this drug is specifically intended for combating HSDD. It received FDA approval in June 2019. It features injectable way of administration: woman should make an injection prior to having sexual intercourse. The exact mechanism of Vyleesi’s effect on sex drive is unclear, but it works by influencing melanocortin receptors. The disadvantage of this medication is a high incidence of side effects, especially nausea. About 40 per cent of women who participated in clinical studies evaluating bremelanotide efficacy and safety had this adverse event.

It should be noted that doctors occasionally prescribe erectile dysfunction (ED) medications to women who has sexual difficulties. Lovegra is a medication which is based on the well-known sildenafil, the key component of men’s Viagra. This drug is produced by Indian generic drugmakers. It has been appeared that it also works sufficiently in women. Several scientific studies have been performed, so it is now known that sildenafil helps to enhance vaginal lubrication and blood flow to clitoris, labia, and vagina.

Female Pink Viagra

Female Pink Viagra is another name of Lovegra, but it is also sold as a separate brand name product. It also improves lubrication of the vagina, boosts blood circulation and indirectly increases desire to have sex (it has no direct effect on female libido).

Use guidelines are as follows: one should take 1 pill 30-60 minutes prior to sexual intercourse. The effect will last 4-6 hours, as in the case of ordinary male Viagra.

Herbal Supplements

Besides pharmaceutical solutions, there are herbal sex enhancement supplements for ladies on the market. However, it is hard to find a high-quality product which will meet a woman’s expectations. Unlike pharmaceuticals, plant-based products act slowly and their effectiveness rate is lower.
