Herbs are more potent and effective than people imagine, and this article reviews natural ways to boost or increase female libido without the use of prescription medications or hormones. Although pharmaceutical drugs work quicker, and hormones are very effective, I find herbal aphrodisiacs to be safer, although they take a few days to work at their best.
More than a decade ago a new sexual revolution began in the modern Western world. It was at that time that Viagra, a pill for the treatment of male erectile dysfunction, was introduced. This, unfortunately, failed to address the other most important part of sexual relations: the female partner. It is not until recently that medical doctors have begun to recognize there are quite a number of women with low libido who have an interest in enhancing their sexuality, yet there are no good pharmaceutical treatment options. Fortunately there are now herbal supplements for women that effectively address this neglected issue of women's sexual enhancement and offer an easy home remedy.
Female libido is certainly a major concern for many women, particularly as they get older. There are many natural ways to enhance it. One option is Passion Rx, a highly evolved product that enhances sex drive in a women within days. You may also consider other herbal sexual enhancers called muira puama extract and tongkat ali.

A version of this sexual formula without Yohimbe is also available. In my experience I have not found arginine to be an effective sexual enhancer in women therefore arginine is not in the formula.
The potent herbal extracts in Passion Rx include
Just about every herb used to enhance female libido has some side effects. However, the side effects are dosage related and different women have side effects from sexual enhancing herbs at different dosages. One option is to take a low amount of an herb, even if it is a half a capsule, and be patient for a week. If no results occur, then the dosage can be increased.
Understanding the causes of Low Female Libido and sexual dysfunction in women:
Psychological or Mental difficulties can cause a decline
The causes of psychological sexual dysfunction are numerous, and it is difficult to list them all, but most often low female libido is related to anxiety, stress, depression, marital or relationship problems, time constraints, the pressures of raising children, life crisis, financial difficulties, religious repression, or some forms of mental illness.
Hormonal influence, role of DHEA and testosterone
Androgens, such as testosterone, are a major component of female libido. Testosterone levels decline about 1 percent each year in men, which may contribute to lower male libido with aging. Testosterone also declines with age in women, especially after 40 and 50, and even more after 60, leading to a significant decrease in female libido. Women who have had surgical removal of the ovaries notice a drop in sexual interest. Replacement of androgens can be helpful in those with age related sexual dysfunction. Testosterone is available by prescription only, including available as a patch. An over the counter hormones, such as DHEA, converts into testosterone and thus has a positive influence. Pregnenolone is another over the counter hormone that may increase testosterone levels and thus enhance desire and interest. However, the risk of side effects and potential long term health consequences of testosterone and androgen use must be taken into account. My preference is to avoid hormones unless absolutely necessary and instead use herbal supplements for libido enhancement. These herbal libido boosters are extremely effective. Hormones could be used for a few days each month if needed. High dose use can increase heart attach rate.
Biological factors appear to increase the likelihood that a woman will engage in sexual intercourse during her most fertile days rather than at other times. Vaginal dryness reduces a woman's interest in sex.
Acute dehydroepiandrosterone effects on female libido and sexual arousal in postmenopausal women.
J Womens Health Gender Based Medicine. 2002.
16 sexually functional women post menopause received oral DHEA 300 mg or placebo 60 minutes before the presentation of an erotic video segment. Increases in mental and physical sexual arousal ratings significantly increased in response to an acute dose of DHEA in postmenopausal women.
Comments: DHEA is a potent hormone and the dosage should be kept to less than 10 mg and no more than twice a week. Some women who have taken high doses of DHEA have noticed thinning hair or hair loss.
Testosterone benefit and side effects for low female libido
My doctor told me that I need testosterone to boost my libido ever since I've had my ovaries removed. Do you think herbs can restore my interest without resorting to hormones? I really don't want to take testosterone.
Most doctors don't realize that there certain natural herbs boost female libido similar to the hormones.

Alterations in the flow of blood to and from the genital region are a minor cause of female sexual dysfunction. For instance, medical conditions such as atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), high cholesterol, hypertension, or diabetes reduce blood flow to the genital organs. An additional factor that can impede blood flow is surgery in the pelvic or abdominal area.
Neural -- Nerve damage from disorders such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinsonís disease, and stroke affect the brainís ability to respond to sexual stimulation. In women, abdominal or pelvic operations can occasionally lead to nerve damage.
Chemical -- Some chemicals involved in the human sexual response include dopamine, acetylcholine, and nitric oxide. Certain medications and drugs interfere with the proper activity of the body's chemicals and hormones responsible for optimal sexual function.
Medical conditions, pregnancy, lactation
Certain diseases reduce female libido, performance, or enjoyment. These include hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, peripheral vascular disease, and neurologic disorders, and insomnia.
My wife is still breastfeeding our 8months old baby. She seems not to be interested in sex since baby was born, pls is their any safe libido enhancer that you can recommend for a breastfeeding mom.
None of the natural aphrodisiacs have been tested in terms of safety with lactation and breastfeeding, but new research seems to indicate that most medications can be safely taken after the baby is a few months old and we think this probably applies to herbs and nutritional supplements although we cannot be 100 percent sure.
Drugs and medications that decrease and interfere
Drugs or prescription medications that interfere with sexual function include some medications used to lower high blood pressure, SSRIs drugs used to treat depression, sedatives such as anti-anxiety agents and sleeping pills, and beta-blockers such as Inderal. Alcohol's negative affect on a woman's libido increases with age. Smoking can reduce genital blood flow.
A survey published in the Journal of the British Association of Urological Surgeons finds that the nearly two-thirds of women report sexual dysfunction. The top problem cited among women was lack of desire, followed closely by orgasm problems, arousal issues, lack of satisfaction, lack of lubrication, and pain. Age, menopausal status and usage of antidepressants were risk factors

Deep sleep is crucial for optimum female sexual function.

Does Viagra help increase female libido? What about Levitra and Cialis?
Viagra sildenafil) approved by the FDA in 1998, has been the most popular medicine for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Viagra works very well in dilating blood vessels in the genital region leading to an erection in men, however it does little to directly increase female libido or sexual arousal. Studies in women show Viagra drug not to be effective and women are better off using natural herbal remedies.
Female libido enhancing medication, flibanserin
Clinical trials are underway on drugs that target low sexual desire through dopaminergic pathways or serotonin receptors. Also in the pipeline are combinations that include PDE5 inhibitors, aimed at aiding women with SSRI-induced orgasmic complaints.
A "female Viagra" pill, known by its generic name, flibanserin, unlike Viagra, works on the brain. Viagra affects blood flow to the genitals. Flibanserin works on several message-carrying chemicals in the brain called neurotransmitters. They are serotonin, dopamine and norepinephrine. Like other drugs such as antidepressants that affect the brain, some initial side effects reported include sleepiness, fainting and fatigue.
The Food and Drug Administration approved flibanserin in August 2015 as the first drug treatment for acquired, generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women. The drug is marketed as Addyi.
The much-touted "female libido" pill seems to cause a host of serious side effects while failing to spark much additional passion in a woman's life. Addyi (flibanserin) quadruples the risk of dizziness and sleepiness, more than doubles the chances of nausea, and increases the risk of fatigue by more than half, Feb. 29, 2016, JAMA Internal Medicine, online.
