Sex problems. We don’t like talking about them for obvious reasons. You’re unlikely to tell your friends what’s what in the state of your bedroom, meaning it’s tempting to just accept less sex – or worse, bad sex – as a fact of life.
Anorgasmia is a generic term for a form of sexual dysfunction in which one can’t orgasm. It’s one of the most common forms of sexual problems that women face, and it disproportionally affects women more than men. Estimates suggest that many women climax in just 50% of encounters, and that up to 10% of American women have never orgasmed at all.
In recent years, female libido pills have garnered attention in health circles and among women looking to put passionate and regular sex back in their bedroom. Female libido pills, being natural products, contain botanicals and ingredients used since ancient times to balance shifting hormones and, among other benefits, to orgasm.
Can libido pills treat anorgasmia?
First, some background information about anorgasmia. It’s sometimes classified as a psychiatric disorder, though anorgasmia can have medical origins as well. Causes of anorgasmia can include:
- multiple sclerosis
- childbirth trauma
- a total hysterectomy
- shifting hormones
Note that shifting hormones are one of the most common causes of anorgasmia. In addition, anti-depressants, especially selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), can trigger anorgasmia in women.
Primary anorgasmia is a condition in which one has never orgasmed. Secondary anorgasmia is lost ability to orgasm and situational anorgasmia refers to people who can orgasm in some situations but not in others.
Situational anorgasmia is the most common form of inability to orgasm and is a common symptom of shifting hormones, decreasing estrogen production and the general process of aging.
Now, back to the question, can libido pills treat anorgasmia, and put frequent and regular orgasms back in the bedroom?
The evidence suggests that they can. Some pills, like Provestra and HerSolution use ginseng, ginkgo biloba and black cohosh root, all prized for their ability to balance shifting hormones back to levels of one’s sexual prime.
Considering that shifting hormones are a leading cause of anorgasmia in women, libido pills could be an effective way to restore deep and enjoyable orgasms in women who’ve orgasmed in the past but lost that ability.
To treat primary anorgasmia, it’s advisable to develop a comprehensive strategy, which should incorporate a doctor, sexual therapist and, upon approval, a quality libido pill.
Remember that some conditions and medical ailments can cause anorgasmia. Your doctor should perform a blood test and check hormone levels, blood sugar levels and for yet undiagnosed conditions. Your doctor can also review any libido pills you’re thinking of taking. While they’re natural products and generally safe, a doctor’s approval can provide reassurance, particularly if you’re concerned with interactions with existing medications.
In addition, a sex therapist can address any psychological causes of anorgasmia, whether it’s primary, secondary or lack of orgasm on a situational basis.
There are other factors that can influence one’s sex life, of course. Diet, weight management and health levels all have their say in the orgasm process. There’s no substitute for healthy lifestyle, awareness, and a lot of practice.
That said, female libido pills appear to live up to the hype, at least in terms of ability to balance hormones and set the conditions for ability to orgasm. And when incorporated within a broad strategy to treat the causes of anorgasmia, offer hope to a growing number of women.
