Dear Brenda,

There is no prescriptive medication that can be recommended for use for low libido in women with or without the medication you are on.

I would suggest you consider having an assessment session with a sex therapist who can cover the complex range of factors that could be resulting in your experience of "low libido". There have recently been significant advances in research and understanding of sexual desire/libido in women which have identified that women mostly experience a receptivity to sex for a range of emotional and psychological reasons, such as to feel desired, to feel wanted, to experience intimacy, to express and recieve love, etc etc which will act as motivation to initiate sex or be receptive to the advances of a partner for sex. There-after if the partner knows the ways to best physically arouse and stimulate her will the physical desire for sex be aroused.

So what women have traditionally beed raised to think and expect regarding libido, and that this presents as a physical signal of "horniness" from her body has been found to not be the typical way in which sexual desire actually works for women.
