Wow, this is a good topic. Yall just getting right out there and talking about
it. I'm blushing (just kidding). I have the desire, my body lets me down. I didn't think testerone was the ticket. A female doc might be better on this. There is a new drug approved for women for this problem and I heard it works really really well. I have tried to get it from my doc, but she wants to refer me to gyn first, she's such a wimp on anything slightly ooky. Anyway, I forget the name of it but it supposedly is very effective and is by prescript
ion. Welbutrin is like using something for one thing for something else and sexual dysfunction/loss of libido is listed as a side effect for that drug. I think effexor made me really a lot better (I think abnormal orgas ms is a side effect--right now any o is abnormal-- but it made things very intense, easy and worked great, I mean abnormal was an understatement, it was fantastic until I got allergic to it). I want to try the med for women. I took some other med for another problem made for men and it didn't work well and made me sick, so please be careful. Male docs just don't get it. If you take klonopin or pain meds, try skipping or taking afterwards. Sometimes muscle relaxers can help so if you take them, you might time things appropriately. Also, excercises make a big big difference (the old kegel) because the nerves and muscles can get lazy. Hormone replacement therapy helped, and treatment for my endocrine stuff. I found most of the problem to be my pain meds and learned to take them afterward and exercise, which I just have to try to do). The spirit is willing in my case, just body doesn't do what I want. Let me know what you find out. Oh, and don't downplay the sensitivity of your neck. My bf learned that a little attention there greatly lessened his workload. Oh and I forgot potatoes. Potatos are an essential dietary component for female sexual health according to a womans magazine article, so they're back on my menu, though in small amounts. I guess you can actually stop by not eating them.
