Are there sex pills for women?
Women can also get sex-related problems, like:
- Having problems getting an orgasm
There’s currently no medication available in the UK specifically for treating sexual problems in women. But there are some medications that might work, that are available in other countries. Still there’s not enough proof for them to be sold in the UK.
This medication is available in the US for low sex drive in women who haven’t gone through menopause. It’s been licenced since 2015, but it can’t be used for all the causes of low sex drive, like when it’s caused by different medical conditions or relationship problems. There are mixed reviews on Flibanserin, so it’s hard to tell if this could help improve your sex drive or not. Either way, it’s not available in the UK.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)
These are drugs that you’d usually be prescribed if you had depression or anxiety, but they can also be used for premature ejaculation in men. These medications might be able to help if you sex problems are being caused by a mental health problem like depression or anxiety. On the other hand, SSRIs can also cause low sex drive and stop you from being able to orgasm as side effects.
This is a herbal product marketed at improving sex problems in women who’ve been through the menopause. It contains ingredients that are thought to improve sexual problems in women, but there’s a lot of mixed information on whether they work. Like with male enhancement products, using herbal products like Prelox isn’t a good idea.
