If you are a woman who is no longer enjoying sex,
or has noticed a decrease in desire, pleasure and interest, do not despair. There are

Sexual function is complex and involves interaction of many factors, including emotional connection, body image, intact physical response and partner sexual function. Disease processes such as abnormal uterine bleeding, endometriosis, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse may have a negative impact on various parameters of sexual health.
Female impotence is an all encompassing term used to describe problems with low sexual desire, low arousal, difficulty with orgasm, perhaps problems with adequate lubrication, or just overall difficulties with sexual enjoyment. Another common term that has a similar meaning to female impotence is female sexual dysfunction. One can also classify female impotence into four major categories: These include disorders of sexual desire, arousal, orgasm, and lubrication.
Besides the use of certain hormones such as testosterone to treat low sexual drive in women, doctors do not have too many other options. Fortunately, there are quite a number of natural approaches that can help women treat problems with sexual desire or arousal in a holistic manner. There are dozens of herbs and dietary supplements that can boost libido and enhance sensation and orgasms. Most of these work within a few days and their side effects are minimal compared to the potential serious side effects from the use of hormones such as testosterone.

female impotence herbs that could
replace the hormonal impotence pill that I take. I think the hormone my doctor
prescribed is testosterone.
In most cases sexual dysfunction in a woman can be helped with a natural female impotence pill or herb. It is impossible to predict which herb or combination will help. One can only tell after trying different herbs for a period of one or two weeks each to see which ones are most effective. More often a combination pill works best. There are natural hormones over the counter that can be used for brief periods and they can be of great benefit. These include DHEA and pregnenolone.
Psychological or Mental causes
The causes of psychological female impotence most often are related to depression, marital stress or relationship problems, life crisis, financial difficulties, religious repression, poor body image, or some type of mental illness. A common reason a woman may experience decreased sexual desire is due to stress, overwork, and exhaustion. The stress of taking care of children may not leave enough energy for bedtime fun. Impotence treatment in these cases depends on the treatment of the cause. Anxiety is a very common reason of female impotence, so is depression. Psychotherapy may help some women overcome psychological impotence. Herbal products may also help. There are natural herbs that help reduce anxiety or treat depression in women. Many herbs and supplements also increase energy and balance mood.
Major physical or medical causes
Hormonal Impotence cause
Low levels of androgens, such as testosterone, are a major component of male and female impotence. Testosterone levels decline with age, which may contribute to female impotence. Women who have had surgical removal of the ovaries notice a drop in sexual interest. Impotence treatment by replacement of androgens can be helpful in some women as long as it is done in a low dosage and used as infrequently as possible. Testosterone is available by prescription only. An over the counter hormones, such as DHEA, converts into testosterone and thus has a positive influence on female impotence and in some cases can be considered an effective female impotence treatment. Pregnenolone is another over the counter hormone that may increase testosterone levels and thus improve impotence. Many herbal aphrodisiacs also have a positive influence on impotence, with some having an effect on hormonal output. Prominent diseases of the endocrine system, such as diabetes mellitus and hyperprolactinemia, may cause impotence. The problem with hormones is that even though they may offer a good impotence treatment, they can have significant side effects when taken in high dosages. Many doctors sometimes prescribe dosages that are excessive.
Drug induced Impotence - certain prescription medications are a cause of female impotence
Drugs that cause impotence include some anti-hypertensives, SSRIs (like Prozac, Zoloft, and Paxil), sedatives, and beta-blockers. Impotence can be caused by a beta blocker such as propranolol or atenolol. SSRIs cause sexual dysfunction mostly due to their effect on serotonin metabolism. Serotonin has an inhibitory effect on sexuality. Therefore, impotence treatment in those who are on SSRIs may require switching to another drug or natural herb or supplement. Sexual dysfunction is a common side effect of most antidepressants. Lower rates are reported with some newer agents such as reboxetine and bupropion. Antipsychotic medications are also a cause of female impotence. Oral contraceptives can also cause female impotence problems. Some women mention that the Pill reduces their desire.
Some chemicals involved in the human sexual response include dopamine, acetylcholine, and nitric oxide. All these three natural chemicals and others can be manipulated n the treatment of impotence. Female impotence can mainly be caused by antidopaminergic mechanisms, whereas ejaculatory disorders and difficulty with orgasm often can be explained by medicines that influence the serotonin system in the body. Anticholinergic and adrenoloytic agents can also cause sexual dysfunction.
A natural supplement that increases serotonin levels is 5-HTP which can impair sexual pleasure and sensation.
Q. I have been taking Paxil for depression for
several months and developed female impotency. My doctor recently stopped the
SSRI medication since I have now improved and don't need it. How long does it
take for the impotency to be restored back to normal sexual health?
A. It depends how strong your sexual drive was before the use of the SSRI drugs, how long you were taking the Paxil medication, the dosage of the Paxil, and other medications you were taking that could have influenced the female sexual impotence problems. In general, though, it takes a few weeks for the return of sexual drive and some women may need several months for a full restoration.
Over the counter drugs in a woman
Over-the-counter allergy medications, such as antihistamines, can cause female impotence if taken regularly for several days or weeks.
Female sexual Impotence and medical
Medical disorders often are a cause of female impotence. These medical conditions can cause low desire, weak arousal, unsatisfying or difficult orgasm, and pain during sex. Some chronic diseases also interfere indirectly with sexual function, by altering relationships and self-image and causing fatigue, pain, and disfigurement.
Certain common medical conditions cause female impotence or reduce libido, performance, or enjoyment. These include hypertension or high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular or heart disease, heart failure, obesity, peripheral vascular disease, neurological disorders, and insomnia. Diabetes and impotence are quite common. Diabetic impotence is first addressed by trying to keep optimal blood sugar levels. Diabetic autonomic neuropathy causes constipation, diarrhea, neurogenic bladder, and impotence due to decreased sensation or function of the nerves to the pelvic region.
Obesity and impotence are also related.
A woman may be unable to enjoy sex because she has chronic pain, which in turn may be caused by an underlying condition. Women with breast cancer or gynecologic disorders foten experience sexual dysfunction.
Female impotence and diet or food
Q. Is there anything I can eat that can be an impotence solution or remedy?
A. If we were to choose one food, it would be fish, particularly wild salmon or halibut. Eating junk food for many years clogs arteries reducing blood flow. Your kitchen is your natural home impotence remedy.
Female impotence herbs
Q. There are so many female sexual impotence products on the market, do any of them work?
A. There are literally hundreds sold online or in stores. We have only tried a few and some of them did work to improve sexual interest. Herbal treatment for female impotence is underused by the medical profession. Herbal impotence treatment by doctors is likely to increase over time as more physicians find out about the potential of herbs and natural supplements.

such a thing as a natural impotence cure? I visit a clinic and I am
involved in a forum. There is a big debate whether a natural remedy

Impotence is caused by many factors, and there are some of these causes that can be addressed by diet and herbs, but not all of them. There are hundreds of herbs and impotence products, and some of them do offer a real herbal impotence remedy or cure. For instance, certain herbs can promote nitric oxide which helps with impotence by dilating blood vessels. Other herbs help release hormones or dopamine and hence improve impotence symptoms.
Q. Can an herbal impotence pill be combined with Cialis or the impotence medication Levitra?
A. Caution is advised when mixing herbs and drugs. Herbs can be quite potent and they have side effects. It would be best to take an herbal impotence pill and an impotence drug on separate days. Often, though, and fortunately, an herbal impotence pill can have a positive effect on sexuality even a day or two after taking it, so on the off day, if your doctor approves, you could take less of the dose of the impotence drug.
Q. My doctor says he does not believe in an alternative
