Vyleesi® for premenopausal women.

Until menopause came around the corner, you were happy with your level of sexual desire. However, it seems like now you’re just not interested.  It’s not that you don’t like sex, it’s just that you don’t feel the draw to it like you used to feel. And that disinterest is pretty much all the time.

You don’t have a physical ailment or injury, and there was no emotional trauma to preclude inclinations toward intimacy. It’s just that the desire…isn’t…there. 

That’s called hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD), and it can not only affect you, it can cause problems in your relationship with your sexual partner.  It’s even more prevalent in women who are premenopausal.

Vyleesi, a prescription drug, can help you overcome those times when you know you would normally want to be intimate, but you can’t seem to find the desire. Vyleesi can increase sexual desire when you feel the time is right. Take it on an as-needed basis, almost like a “female Viagra®!”

Vyleesi starts working around 45 minutes after ingestion. What’s also nice is that there are no alcohol restrictions—so if you want a glass of wine, a cocktail, or a cold one, feel free. 

Ask Dr. Christi if Vyleesi could be right for you, to counter the effects of HSDD.

Addyi® for HSDD

Similar to Vyleesi, Addyi (pronounced “add-ee”) works for pre-monpausal women without a history of HSDD in the past, but currently have low libido no matter the sexual activity, situation, or partner.  

Keep in mind that all sexually active people have fluctuations in their desire for sex. However, if that desire is consistently diminished or non-existent, and this troubles the person, now is the time to address the low drive issue.

Unlike Vyleesi, Addyi is taken consistently for a cumulative revival of your libido.  Taken once per day before bedtime, you can have improved results in as little as 4 weeks. There are some alcohol restrictions with Addyi, and a few other restrictions.  

Should this prescription drug prove to be the right choice for your situation, Dr. Christi will fully go over all possible side effects and requirements with you.

Testosterone Hormone Therapy

This might surprise you, but testosterone can be how to increase female libido in Houston! 

The imbalance of hormones that happens in a woman’s body, including a loss of testosterone, happens more as we age. Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are the main hormones affected by menopause, pre-menopause, perimenopause and post-menopause. 

Many of the symptoms caused by hormone imbalance can feel like an emotional rollercoaster. Some of those “bottoms” include the loss of libido. After your initial consultation at ChristiMD Medical Group, your lab work will determine if you need hormone replacement. 

Hormone replace therapy doesn’t require a pill be taken before sex, or every day.  Rather, Dr. Christi can insert a testosterone pellet under your skin, which dissolves over the course of a few months. This provides an even, continuous dosage of testosterone without worry about remembering your pill.

Or, you can choose to take home a prescription testosterone cream for a simple, soothing topical application. You have choices!
