Are you a woman experiencing a loss of sexual desire? The Doctors share this is the most common form of sexual dysfunction, but say a shot may help with the issue.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry explains that bremelanotide, an FDA-approved drug, may help some women dealing with Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), otherwise known as low libido. The shot is given 45 minutes before sexual activity and possibly affects brain receptors and usually leads to an increase in libido. The shot can be used up 8 times per month and is meant for pre-menopausal women.
Psychologist Dr. Kelly Donohoe says she loves the idea of the shot, noting that it allows women to take control of their sexuality.
She does feel the shot is not for everyone. "If you have a trauma history, or the relationship isn't healthy, or there is an underlying medical condition, this medication isn't for you," she tells The Doctors.
She encourages anyone dealing with a sexual libido issue to speak with a professional, like a therapist, psychologist or doctor in order to properly address and deal with it and possibly find out what might be the underlying issue.
