Female Viagra – No Need for that Little Pink Pill

Female Viagra - No Need for that Little Pink Pill | Menopause Woman

Balance your hormones to obtain sexual wellness

I was recently out walking with a friend and she asked me what I thought of the new viagra for women. She saw my face change, and understood immediately that I didn’t think much of it.

Have any of you heard of the little pink pill of sexual desire, called Flibanserin, the female equivalent of viagra – the little blue pill? Well, there’s so much controversy going on about it at the moment that it’s almost impossible that you haven’t, at least if you live in the US. It was recently given the stamp of approval in early June by the FDA, and wow are we women happy!

I am joking, of course. We are NOT happy or shouldn’t be. It is a chemical drug that has various side-effects including an increased risk of dizziness, fainting, nausea, fatigue, dry mouth, anxiety and/or unintentional injury when combined with alcohol.

It is a chemical sex pill, which has a low reward to high risk ratio. Flibanserin is basically an antidepressant, that defuses its murky shadows over the brain by working on neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine. Women do not need this pink pill. This is not the way it should be.

As you already know, I am all for a vibrant and happy sex life, and the possibility of being able to reinstate a deflated sex drive is wonderful, but sex is not just about pure sex, there are so many other factors involved.

What if we really don’t want it, what if we have an unstable relationship, should we just do it for the sake of doing it or because it is expected of us?

No, of course not. What real pleasure can there be in that? Surely we should be connected in every sense of the word; mind, body and soul?

What if we are psychologically unhealthy? What if our sex organs really can’t accommodate it!?

What if..what if…what if?

There are so many ‘what ifs’ in menopause. The sharp hormonal decline experienced in menopause takes the mind, body and soul connection away. It numbs it. This imbalance can lead to vaginal dryness, pain during intercourse, weight gain, depression, panic and anxiety attacks, and more.

Most people, men and women alike, find that low sex drive accentuates with age, which is, in major part, due to hormonal decline.

Many women live in hope that Flibanserin is their answer, but it isn’t. This is not some kind of ‘magic bullet‘ that says, “Hey, go girl go”. It doesn’t work like that. Flibanserin does not correct vaginal dryness, take the pain away during intercourse, or correct weight gain or depression which all have an impact on sexual desire, or the lack of it.

In men testosterone levels decline gradually throughout their lifespan, and by mid-life they begin to see obvious symptoms such fatigue, mood swings, reduced muscle mass, erectile dysfunction (ED) and reduced sexual desire. If they restore their body with bioidentical hormones, and in particular testosterone, they will regain their lust for love making and sexual function will return! No more need for that little blue pill.

In women, the decline of our precious sex hormones, oestrogens, progesterone are partly at fault, but testosterone, the big, tempting, fascinating, supposed male hormone (women have testosterone as well), play a significant role in sexual desire.

At the onset of menopause testosterone levels drop significantly, adding greatly to our lost libido. Testosterone is a pretty potent sex hormone for women, helping to increase sexual sensations and allowing us to have better and stronger orgasms.

Who needs the little pink pill with all its side effects and low reward and high risk ratio? We have restorative medicine.

Welcome to a happy sex life! Balance your hormones.
