If you are on a: Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (ssri) talk with your provider about adding in wellbutrin, (bupropion) lowering your dose or a trial with a different antidepressant (lexapro is sometimes a tad better in regards to sexual dysfunction).

Natural?: By natural, i'm assuming you mean without extra hormonal supplements. Many therapists who deal with sexual dysfunction recommend "changing things up" in the bedroom. Have a talk with your partner about experimenting with bedroom toys, fantasy, those sexy films that both males and females can enjoy, etc. If 'natural' doesn't work, have a talk with your gynecologist.

Forget it: The only thing it helps is to make a lot of $$ for the manufacturer. You don't really think any supplement or herbal product is going to help low libido, do you. Overall health and being attracted to your partner are the old fashioned ways, which work much better.

Ask yourself some Qs: What are you worried about? Job? Money? Family? Friends? Stress can affect sex drive. How's your relationship w/your partner? If it's not good & strong, it's difficult to want to have sexual relations w/that person. How's your mental health? Depression can cause loss of libido. Excess alcohol? Recreational substances? Medications? All these can affect your sex drive. How's your physical health?

Places to start: Start with good nutrition, regular exercise, stop smoking, stop drinking or only in moderation. Be experimental in sexual practices. If having other symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, sleep changes or others see physician as this may be an indicator of an underlying medical problem. Any history of injury to genital area? Also a reason to see physician for evaluation. Good luck!
