For quite some time, there was no female equivalent of Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis. But men are not the only one with sexual drive problems. In fact, most women have sex right at the bottom of their list once they hit the bed. There are many reasons for this, including fatigue, stress, relationship issues, and hormonal imbalance.

Women who are looking to increase their desires don’t have to worry about this issue at all. There are now plenty of options to improve libido, including the nearly FDA-approved flibanserin and other female Viagra products as well as some natural alternatives.

Over-The-Counter Options

• Flibanserin: For two years, the Food and Drug Administration turned the proponents of this drug down. This time though, it is different as 18 out of 24 members of the FDA advisory committee voted the recommendation of the drug’s approval. Flibanserin is a drug that works on women’s central nervous system to help them deal with sexual dysfunction.

• Zestra Oil: A study in 2010 showed that this oil can improve sexual arousal and desire in women. Officially known as Zestra Essential Arousal Oil, this product uses peppermint oil to make the woman more tingly.

• Lady Prelox: Just launched last year in spring, Lady Prelox is often called the pink Viagra. It uses the Pycnogenol, an extract from a French pine along with amino acids and rose hip extract.

• Viagra: Yes, the famous magic blue pill for men also works for women – at least according to a study that focused on over 200 post-hysterectomy and post-menopausal women. Those who took Sildenafil (Viagra) are more satisfied with sex than those who took a placebo.

Natural Alternatives

• Diet: There are foods that can naturally increase your libido, including seafood. Mediterranean mussels are the most recommended because they are rich in an amino acid that can directly have an effect on sexual hormone levels. Fennel and celery also have sexual drive-boosting effect due to their estrogen-like compounds.

• Pheromone-Like Emission: There are wines and foods you can consume to emit smells that excite your partner naturally. These include truffles, champagne, licorice, and even cucumber. Coffee is also an aphrodisiac, according to studies because of the antioxidants it contains.

• Exercise: Taking care of your body through exercising regularly can make you look and feel sexy. If you are physically fit, you become more confident in your appearance and in the bedroom as well.

Women’s sexual dysfunction is not just about physical treatment because it is a very complicated matter. While Viagra and other sexual boosters for men focus on treating the physical problem, the opposite is for women where sexual desire comes first to achieve true satisfaction.
