Natural Treatment for Low Sex Drive in Women –
At some point in almost everyone’s life they will experience a decreased libido, also known as a “low sex drive”. Lack of sexual interest or motivation can stem from numerous causes – some of which are medical, while others are the product of temporary lifestyle factors. But whatever the cause, the sensitive and private nature of a low sex drive causes many women to suffer in silence, without ever seeking help with the situation.
But at AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI we offer the most effective, all natural, non-invasive low sex drive treatment available on the market. In this article, board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ali outlines some of the most common causes of a low sex drive, and discusses the revolutionary new Viveve treatment we offer to rejuvenate your sex drive.
Common Causes of Low Sex Drive:
Lifestyle Causes of Low Sex Drive
For many women, a low sex drive is the result of high levels of stress. Many parents, for example, find that the stresses and responsibilities of child-rearing lead to both less time for and less interest in sex. Fortunately, a low sex drive caused by stress will typically be temporary, and can in some cases be managed by talking to a therapist as a means of alleviating stress and striking a better overall life balance. In doing so, the loss of time, energy, and interest responsible for their low sex drive may be restored.
Low Sex Drive Caused by Depression
For other women who are suffering from depression, every aspect of their lives -mental and physical- can fall victim to the effects of their condition. One’s libido is no exception to this, making depression one of the most common causes of a low sex drive. Fortunately, while depression is a devastating condition, various treatment options are available. Should one’s depression interfere with any aspect of their life whatsoever -including cause a low sex drive- they are encouraged to seek the help of a mental health care professional. Any of our patients who are suffering from depression are free to turn to Dr. Ali, who will gladly refer them to a therapist or psychiatrist.
Low Sex Drive Caused by Medication
While a low sex drive may sometimes be caused by depression, one somewhat ironic (if also unfair) reality is that some forms of depression treatment can also result in a decreased libido. Medications for depression of the SSRI class -which include Prozac, Lexapro, and Zoloft- come with the side effect of lowering one’s sex drive. However, while SSRI medications can cause a low sex drive, they only represent a fraction of all antidepressants available to patients. Wellbutrin and other non-SSRI antidepressants do not include a low sex drive as a side effect, so if a patient believes their low sex drive is the product of their medication, they should ask their psychiatrist about what alternatives are available to them.
And, SSRIs are not the only medication that can result in a low sex drive. Women taking birth control pills that contain progestin and estrogen also frequently experience a low sex drive. Anyone who thinks their low sex drive is the product of their birth control can talk to their gynecologist – who will typically be glad to discuss alternate methods of contraception. IUDs or low-hormone birth control pills are far less likely to result in a low sex drive.
Low Sex Drive Caused by Vaginal Conditions
During a woman’s life, her vagina is subject to the tolls of childbirth, aging, and hormonal changes (such as menopause), all of which can potentially lead to a low sex drive. Factors such as these can result in the vagina becoming lax, loose, or dry, which can make the feeling of penetrative sex less sensitive or even painful. Physical discomfort is one of the last things a person should have to worry about during sex, and women who experience it frequently find this leads to a loss of sexual interest or motivation.
Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation for Low Sex Drive
The good news is that if vaginal and genital changes are the reason for a woman’s weakened libido, they now have the option of treating their low sex drive through Viveve Vaginal Rejuvenation at AMAE in Birmingham, MI.
