A woman’s faith, mental health, and the strength of her most intimate relationships are all affected by her libido. In addition, the supplement and pharmaceutical industries have recently placed a greater focus on prescription and non-prescription choices for women to help them improve their libido or overall sexual satisfaction. In this article, we’ll look at the benefits and drawbacks of some of the most common female bedroom enhancement solutions on the market in 2021, including creams, tablets, and other female enhancers.
Vyleesi is the most recent FDA-approved drug for the treatment of hypoactive sexual desire disorder in women, which is medically known as low sexual desire (HSDD). Vyleesi stimulates Melanocortin receptors, but the mechanism by which it functions is unclear. Vylessi is an injectable drug that women can use 45 minutes before sexual intercourse, but only once every 24 hours or once every 8 months. In the Vyleesi clinical trials, 25 percent of female participants showed an increase in sexual desire of at least 1.2 (in a range of 1.2-6) and 35 percent reported less discomfort from low sexual desire.
Compounded Scream Creams
A prescription compounded drug manufactured by compounding pharmacies with the aim of improving the female sexual experience is referred to as “scream cream” in the industry. This won’t actually improve your libido, but if you’re having trouble getting in the mood due to blood flow problems or a lack of sensitivity and excitement, this might help. These creams usually contain a combination of ingredients that increase blood flow or sensitivity when applied to the clitoral region, such as Sildenafil (the active ingredient in Viagra), Arginine, Pentoxifylline, Isosorbide dinitrate, or Testosterone.
The plant Tribulus Terrestris has long been used in eastern medicine for its purported health benefits. Tribulus can be used as a supplement in many health food and vitamin stores. 67 women were randomly assigned to take either a Tribulus supplement or a placebo everyday for four weeks in a double-blind study from 2016. Women in the Tribulus community showed increased appetite, arousal, lubrication, happiness, and pain relief at the end of the trial.
Addyi is an FDA-approved drug for women who haven’t achieved menopause but are suffering from low sexual desire, also known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). Addyi is an oral tablet that should be taken once a day before bedtime. Addyi stimulates sexual appetite by acting on serotonin receptors, but the exact mechanism by which it does so is unclear. Due to the possibility of a serious interaction between this drug and alcohol, which can result in extremely low blood pressure and fainting, alcohol should not be used when taking Addyi. According to clinical trials, women who take Addyi have 0.5-1 more stimulating sexual experiences per month than those who take a placebo.
Maca powder is made from the Peruvian Maca plant’s base. Maca is a cruciferous herb, which means it’s related to cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, kale, cauliflower, and cabbage. Maca has recently become a popular health food, and it can be found in health food stores or as an ingredient in juice bars and smoothie shops. Maca is a traditional Chinese medicine that has been used for over 2,000 years. Check Laweekly for more information.
