I'm wondering what pill can I use to get my girlfriends sex drive back?

Searching in vain: There is no magic pill to do that - sorry - if there were - the folk who sold it would be very rich. The possible causes of her low libido are too wide ranging to guess. She might benefit from a physical exam if she doesn't feel well. Or therapy - individual and/or couples sessions might help pinpoint a problem. Be patient and brave.

Will damiana help get my sex drive back? If so when will I start to see a difference in 1000mg capsule a day?

Will damiana help get my sex drive back? If so when will I start to see a difference in 1000mg capsule a day?

Short answer...no: I think it is important to understand that supplements and herbal remedies differ from traditional medications, both prescription and over-the-counter, in that, by law, they are not required by the government to have the same rigorous standards of proving that they are safe and effective by the fda. As long as a product has a disclaimer that it does not claim to treat any illness, the company selling it is basically able to make many claims regarding what the product can do. These products may well be effective and safe (although I would not spend my money on them unless they had data showing that they are indeed safe and effective), but they may not be. Also, interactions with medications you take for other conditions may occur, and there is no way of knowing this 100%. I would advise caution.

Additionally, be aware that there are a great many products out there offering "male enhancement" or "improved sexual performance". None of these products are regulated by the fda, and none have shown any data proving their safety or efficacy. Despite this, many of the companies manufacturing these products make a great deal of money. I think a good rule of thumb is, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. ...Read more

Need sex drive back! Will levitra (vardenafil) help?

Need sex drive back! Will levitra (vardenafil) help?

Maybe but not likely: Levitra (vardenafil) (or Cialis or staxyn or stendra or viagra) may help improve sex drive if it's a matter of loss of confidence due to erectile dysfunction. But if that's not the case, these drugs won't help improve/increase libido. Instead, look at stress (relationship, money, work, family, friends), health, medications & finally, last but not least, low testosterone. ...Read more

Can I take macca with mirtazipine? I'm trying to get my sex drive back and am exercising regularly and sleeping much better since starting mirtazipine

Maca & Mirtazepine: There are no interactions between maca and mirtazepine, but you should also know that decreased sex drive is common in depression. In preclinical studies with mirtazepine, libido changes were very rare -- and were increased, rather than decreased. It has a different mechanism than ssri's, which more commonly cause problems with libido. Please discuss your plans with your doctor. ...Read more

I'm 19, female, 5'8" and 175 pounds. I have no sex drive since I went on birth control for four months over 2 years ago. How do I get sex drive back?

Not uncommon.: Great question. It will help many women.
It is quite common to sense decreased libido on bcp's as they downregulate your ovaries, estrogen and other sex hormones. Don't worry. You can change your birth control with your ob/gyn; find a new form of non-hormonal birth control like the iud; enhance your libido with topical testosterone or enhance your own libido mentally, physically, spiritually. ...Read more

I have pcos post pill. One week ago had + sex drive, pink spotting, back ache. Have had cramping ever since + lower sex drive could I have ovulated?

Hard to Say: I don't think your symptoms are those of which are typical of ovulation.If anything they sound very typical of PCOS with the irregular spotting and premenstrual type symptoms. With ovulation we see a slight increase in basal body temperature which is really one of the only obvious physical signs of ovulation so maybe you should start taking your basal body temp daily to keep track and know for sure ...Read more
