Not the place to ask: You're on some mighty heavy drugs for someone with just "anxiety disorder." I suspect that you're omitting some important details of your psych history. You didn't just wander into a chemist & make an impulse purchase. A doctor Rx'd these drugs for a reason. Discuss this with him/her first & foremost. Making any changes on your own is potentially unpleasant or even dangerous. Don't do it. ...Read more

Medicines that help women with no sex drive?

Medicines that help women with no sex drive?

Hormone Therapy: may help. Low sex drive can be associated with low Testosterone; you should have that checked. There really is no other medicine. Some supplements make claims to increase drive, like Maca Maca. In my experience I have often found that low/no drive can often be related to the relationship a person is in-if there are unresolved problems it puts a real damper on things, especially for women. ...Read more

What to do if no sex drive in 24 yr old female. help!?

No sex drive/libido: Whether 24yo as you ask or 46yo as you're listed, no sex drive is a common concern in women (as it is in men). Sex hormones can play a role but they're further down the road than many would believe. Instead, look for stress in various forms whether (graduate) school, work, finances, religion, culture, family etc. Positive affirming relationship is helpful. Depression isn't. Review meds w/your doc. ...Read more

Is it common for women to have no sex drive after having baby?

Is it common for women to have no sex drive after having baby?

Yes.: After baby arrives, hormones are geared to take care of the baby, not bf's/husbands, etc. Plus, deliveries create something of a tissue trauma "down there" so don't expect many urges to further stimulate the area for awhile. Give it a rest until hormones and tissues normalize. In the meantime, practice alternate forms of gratification with your partner. ...Read more
