Chinese Medicine For Female Low Libido
Low libido is a common problem amongst women. Over the years, a woman's sexual desire naturally fluctuates. Highs and lows commonly coincide with the beginning or end of a relationship or with major life changes, such as pregnancy, menopause or illness. Some antidepressants and anti-seizure medications also can cause low sex drive in women.
It's normal to have a decreased sex drive after giving birth. This feeling can last for months. In one study of postpartum women, 20 percent had little or no desire for sex three months after delivery, and another 21 percent had a complete loss of desire or aversion to sexual activity. If you have a persistent or recurrent lack of interest in sex that causes you personal distress, you may have hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).
Unlike men's main sexual complaint, erectile dysfunction, women's biggest sexual problem is caused by a combination of both mental and physical factors, which aren't likely to be cured by merely popping a pill.
In Chinese Medicine, the Kidney organ-meridian plays a vital role in reproductive health and sexuality because it is the source of the opposing forces of Yin and Yang, which exist in balance in both men and women and regulate the ebb and flow of energy or Qi throughout the body.
Most of the herbs are used to enhance sexual vitality, libido (sex drive and desire), sexual potency, sensitivity, and physical performance.
