Guys are not the only ones that can experience a sexual dysfunction and low libido. Ladies can also struggle with a low libido that can result in impaired arousal, painful sex, and the difficulty to orgasm. So if you and your partner have hit a dry spell and “lost your groove,” there is hope to boost your sex drive with natural methods and/or medically prescribed alternatives.
Since there are so many different contributing causes to a low libido, you may want to first speak with your medical provider to help eliminate any physiological or psychological reasons. For example, stress, anxiety, depression, body image issues, major health conditions, hormones, and lack of exercise.
Once you have a better understanding of contributing factors, you can put together an action plan to help manage and treat the root causes that are cock-blocking you from reaching sexual satisfaction. Just make sure that you include your partner–whether they are long or short-term–to help guarantee better results from whichever route you take to get your sex drive back on track.
Au Naturel Sex Drive Boosters
For the sake of this article, natural sex drive boosters will fall under the umbrella of anything that is not medically prescribed or supervised. At FunLove.com, you’ll find tons of games, toys, stimulants, herbal supplements, apparel, and more to help get you in the mood.
Here are our top five natural sex drive boosters:
- Planned and Spontaneous Date Nights
Between work and keeping up with family and social obligations, you may find that you’ve pushed your own personal desires to the backburner. Whether or not you have a partner, that could equate to less fun and free one-on-one date nights, which in turn could eventually stifle your sex drive.
One way to help you balance your life is to make time for special date nights at least twice a month, or just give in to spontaneity every once in a while and see where your day or night takes you. Add in a bit of foreplay, explore a sexual fantasy, or just enjoy a fun activity without distractions by turning your phone off.
By making the time to remind you and your partner what attracted you to each other without the prospect of sex, you may help raise the level of happy hormones (dopamine and oxytocin) in your system which in turn may greatly relieve stress and improve a lacking libido.
- Exercise, Relax, Sleep, and Repeat
Medical writer and editor Naveed Saleh, MD, MS, believes that there are general trends that support the idea that some types of exercise can boost libido and sexual health in both men and women. More specifically, strength training, kegels, yoga, walking, and swimming may just do the trick.
Then, after a few invigorating rounds of exercise to get the blood flowing, a relaxing bath and/or sensual body massage from a partner may further increase your desire for a bit of sexual release.
Lastly, nothing beats the benefits of a quick cat nap or full restful night of sleep. Lack of energy and sleep exhaustion do not make for a sex jazzed mood. In fact, feeling tired can zap whatever libido you may have been feeling, even moments before.
- Herbal Supplements
Men and women may benefit from herbal formulas crafted by Irwin Naturals. You will find a variety of these herbal supplements at FunLove.com that focus specifically on an overall approach to increase sexual vitality, intimacy, and pleasure, to include steel libido, natural testosterone, and prosta-strong.
- Personal Lubricants
Personal lubricants help keep bedroom activities sensually slick, while providing internal tissue with protection. Nothing kills the mood more than vaginal dryness or penis friction burns. And to help you find the best lubricant for your personal needs, take a look at this helpful guide we put together titled How to Choose the Best Personal Lubricant for You.
- Self Sexual Exploration
Believe it or not, self-love can go a long ways to boosting a low sex drive. How? To start, you become intimately aware of your own erogenous zones and comfort levels with a variety of sex toys. You can then share those details with your partner to help alleviate any sexual pressure/ performance anxiety.
Masturbation may also help increase natural vaginal lubrication for women and reduce stress levels in men.
Medically Induced Low Libido Busters
Sometimes we need a bit of Western medicine to help us overcome physical and mental health conditions that block the flow to a happier and healthier sex life. There is no shame in acknowledging that you need help and then building your own medical support team to help you overcome obstacles.
Let’s Talk About Sex
Couples and Individual counseling sessions may bring you relief by sharing your frustrations, insecurities, and anxiety triggers with an impartial ear. You may also benefit from an intermediary that has practice helping open communication channels and providing direction to resolving inner and outer conflicts, as well as recovering from hurt and trauma. Not addressing these psychological concerns might cause you to experience low sex drive.
A licensed psychologist may also prescribe an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication to help get you over a rough patch that may also be reducing your desire for intimacy.
Gels, Creams, Pellets, and Injections
Both men and women can experience low testosterone levels. After a few blood tests and other considerations, your doctor may suggest a testosterone topical cream, gel, or implanted time-release pellet to help improve your body's natural levels. Doing so can help increase your sexual drive and desire.
Viagra, Cialis, Levitra, Stendra, and other prescription medications are available online at FascinationsRX.com to help treat erectile dysfunction and male sexual performance issues. Localized estrogen therapy, Osphena, Addyi, and Vyleesi are prescribed medications that may help females overcome sexual dysfunctions.
Please talk to your doctor about any of these prescribed options if you would like to learn more.
