Loss of Libido or Low Sex Drive in Females / Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD) / Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD)

Homeopathic treatment

There is no treatment of loss of libido or sex drive in allopathy or conventional medicine. The big pharmaceutical companies are searching for a drug that will turn women on, they have had little success.

Usually hormonal pills are given for loss of libido particularly the male sex hormone testosterone. Allopathic doctors have been trying out testosterone on women for more than 45 years, rarely with much benefit. This may be a quick and strong way to combat hormonal imbalance, but unfortunately, it entails serious side effects and increases the risk of different types of cancer among women.

In 1991 the National Institute of Health (NIH) launched the Women's Health Initiative (WHI), the largest clinical trial ever undertaken in the United States. The WHI was designed to provide answers concerning possible benefits and risks associated with use of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This study was canceled in July 2002, after it was proven that synthetic hormones increase risks of ovarian and breast cancer as well as heart disease, blood clots and strokes. The findings were published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association, and to this date have not been disputed.

Side effects also include hairiness (abnormal hair growth on chin, chest), spots (hyper pigmentation), a deep voice and enlargement of the clitoris, acne, irritability and increased heart rate.

There are lot many desire creams available in the market without much effect on the reduced desire.

Loss of desire can often be put right, but you need to look carefully at the causes of the problem. This is usually overlooked by the allopathic practitioners.

In contrast homeopathic treatment gets to the root of the problem. It helps to treat the underlying condition which may be responsible for low sex drive.

Homeopathic medicines are most useful for women as they help in balancing the female hormonal system.

Homeopathy, being a mind-and-body medicine, treats the patients at the level of the body as well as the mind, which is primarily essential for sexual dysfunction cases.

Lack of sex drive or libido and inability to become aroused show good response to treatment with homeopathy especially since the cause is psychological in most cases.

Another area where remedies can be of great help is dyspareunia or painful intercourse. A large number of cases of dyspareunia show positive response after treatment and adequate counseling of the patient.

  • Medicines helps in treating the underlying disease.
  • The treatment helps in reducing stress and improve the stress coping system.
  • Remedies help enhancing your moods and stimulating your sex drive.
  • Medicines help in reducing the intake of anti anxiety or anti depression medicines.

The treatment is decided after thorough case taking of the patient.

What is loss of libido in females / Female Sexual Arousal Disorder (FSAD) / Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD)

A low libido refers to a lack of sexual desire or interest in having intercourse. While it can affect both sexes, it is more commonly reported in women than in men. It’s important not to confuse a low libido with an outright lack of ability to achieve an orgasm.The problem with having a low libido is that it is often a result of sexual thoughts becoming less frequent, arousal being slowed – resulting in an increased time to reach climax, a psychological reluctance to engage in sexual activity, and so on. The list, unfortunately, goes on.

Studies show that approximately one-third of the female population will, at some time or another, experience a lack of libido. There is a vast array of reasons for this to occur, and they are both physical and psychological.

The American Medical Association has estimated that several million US women suffer from 'female sexual arousal disorder' (FSAD).

Causes

  • Pain during intercourse or other sexual activity (vaginismus): When a woman experiences an uncomfortable feeling or any sort of pain, they often wish to no longer initiate sexual activity for a period of time. This is a subconscious effect. Pain may also stem from health complications like a cyst or any type of infection or disease.
  • Childbirth: After the birth of a child, hormone levels in a woman’s body are out of whack. This is an extremely common reason why women have a lower libido.
  • Obesity: Women who are classified as obese are often found to be lacking a variety of sex hormones, which results in a disinterest in sexual activity.
  • Pregnancy: Much like childbirth, hormones are affected throughout the pregnancy period.
  • Illness: Diabetes and other serious health problems may spawn several different causes for a lack of sexual interest, such as dryness in the vagina, nerve damage, and hormonal imbalance.
  • Alcoholism: Contrary to popular belief, alcohol’s effects on the body DECREASE a human being’s sex drive and hinder performance.
  • Drug Use: Illegal substances (and even prescription / over-the-counter medication) sometimes have the ability to counter-act a woman’s sex drive.
  • Menopause: Last but not least is the change of life. While studies are not conclusive on whether or not menopause diminishes female libido, it is important to consider this anyway. Better safe than sorry.

A low libido is not only caused by physical issues, but by psychological ones as well! In fact, it is often much more common for a woman to be suffering from a lack of sexual desire due to a psychological cause, over a physical one.

Psychological causes

  • A rocky relationship: Our quality of life is often directly related to the quality of the relationship that exists between us and our partner. If your head is cluttered with pressing issues related to your relationship or marriage, you won’t be as interested in sex.
  • The bills, chores and so on: The infamous lifestyle stressors such as paying the bills, cleaning the house, managing life – these can be the cause of sexual dysfunction in women.
  • Anxiety, depression, loss of interest: These are probably the issues with the strongest effect on the sex drive. You may consider seeking medical counsel to have these problems rectified right away. When being prescribed a medication, inquire as to the potential effect the drugs themselves may have on your sex live.
  • Abuse - Sexual, emotional or physical - past or present: Obviously such encounters during any point in your life will have an effect on your ability to develop an interest in sex.

Symptoms

The symptoms and signs of low libido include reduced sexual desire, less frequent sexual thoughts and fantasies, and a reluctance to initiate sex. A lack of desire for sex still occurs even when there have been no sexual encounters for days, weeks, or even months.

Other symptoms are:

  • Headaches
  • Chronic unexplained pain
  • Muscle pain
  • Dry mouth
  • Fatigue

Diagnosis

Low libido can be diagnosed by taking the detailed history of the patient which includes reduced sexual desire, less frequent sexual thoughts and fantasies, and a reluctance to initiate sex.

Relationship issues with partner

Low libido can cause a range of relationship difficulties and may also affect self esteem. It can lead to lethargy, depression, and other unhealthy mental states that will have negative consequences on how the person lives her life.
