A low libido is a common problem for both women and men, and can affect people in any age group. Various physiological, emotional and lifestyle factors can contribute to the occurrence of a low libido. Among both men and women, one of the common causes of this condition is reduced testosterone levels. Women too possess this hormone, which induces normal sexual desire.
Hormone imbalances, low thyroid levels, stress, depression, autoimmune disorders, and menopause or low estrogen levels may also be responsible for a low libido in women and men. Symptoms include lack of desire to engage in any form of sexual activity, no sexual thoughts or fantasies, and low energy levels and poor motivation in life.
Treatments in compounding pharmacy can help to address the problem of a low libido. The underlying cause of the problem can be determined with blood tests to check the patient’s hormone levels, thyroid imbalance, diabetes, or to screen for high cholesterol. Once the cause is known, appropriate customized treatments can be administered.
American Integrative Pharmacy (AIP), led by the sensational and pragmatic Dr. Neema Yazdanpanah, provides advanced compounding solutions for low libido to patients in Long Beach, Torrance, Los Angeles, South Bay Orange County, Southern California areas, and from one ocean to another across the fruited and resource rich plain.
Treatments in integrative pharmacy can be tailored to focus on the specific needs of a patient who is suffering from a low libido. Some of the key treatment options include:
This hormone causes stimulation of the libido and peaks during an orgasm. The compounding pharmacist may provide it in the form of a nasal spray, which can be applied prior to the sexual intercourse. Regular prescribed use of oxytocin can relieve the patient from anxiety and depression as well as counteract the libido loss.
Testosterone is the most important hormone that governs the levels of libido in both men and women. Over the last few decades, testosterone levels in general have declined due to environmental hazards. As a result low libido occurrence has become more widespread. Prescription treatments in compounding pharmacy to boost testosterone levels include testosterone injections, gels, creams, or troches.
Menopausal women are commonly affected by the problem of a low libido. However, synthetic hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may often fail to improve the condition. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), on the other hand, can deliver closest copies of hormones naturally produced by the body. Therefore, BHRT in integrative pharmacy can be effective in restoring a woman’s vigor and sex drive.
Amino acids such as L-arginine can help to boost the levels of nitric oxide. This compound will relax the blood vessels, and promote an increased blood flow to the sexual organs. The treatment can benefit both men and women affected by a low libido.
These medications can improve the libido and sexual satisfaction in about one-third of women, and help women suffering from sexual dysfunction due to antidepressants.
