Female Sexual Dysfunction
Female sexual dysfunction is an abnormal aversion to sexual intercourse and the subsequent inability to reach orgasm. The cause may be a physical problem or underlying illness. It may also be psychological; for example, it could be caused by a fear of becoming pregnant. Emotional problems may prevent vaginal secretions during sexual arousal, resulting in a dry genital area and a lack of sexual desire. A physician or other health professional can often determine the reasons for a woman's sexual dysfunction once her sexual history is known; appropriate treatment can then begin.Herbs that may be helpful:
Damiana is the "woman's sexuality herb"--one of the most popular of plant aphrodisiacs. It contains alkaloids that directly stimulate the nerves and organs and have a testosterone-like effect. Damiana is excellent for supporting the sexual organs and enhancing sexual pleasure. For best results, place a dropperful of damiana extract under your tongue an hour or two before sexual activity. It may take several days for the difference to become apparent.
Wild Yam contains a natural steroid called dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) that rejuvenates and gives vigor to lovemaking. Take it for 2 weeks, then stop for 2 weeks and so on.
