It’s no secret that the pharmaceutical industry has not had great success treating low female libido. We all remember when “female Viagra” (a drug called Addyi) came onto the market. That’s where hormone pellets comes into play.
To put it modestly, Addyi was not a roaring success. Studies found the pill – taken daily – resulted in less than one “extra” satisfying sexual experience per month.
This isn’t even taking into account the varied side effects of taking the drug – everything from:
- Low blood pressure
On top of all that, purchasing Addyi required women to sign a contract stating they would consume alcohol while on the pill.
But the kicker is the root cause of low libido – proven by study after study – usually comes from hormonal imbalances, such as:
- Low estrogen
- Progesterone levels
And Addyi did nothing to change these hormone levels.
This is where we come in! Through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), we offer an alternative to using drugs that essentially work as a “band-aid” covering up your symptoms.
Instead, we offer a natural and integrated approach to hormone therapy – one in which we look at all the factors that may be contributing to your hormone levels and quality of life, and propose a treatment plan using only natural hormones, via hormone pellets, your body will recognize.
What Is the Root Cause of Low Libido in Women?
So let’s get right down to it:
- What causes low libido in women?
- How can we alleviate it through BHRT?
Naturally, this is almost an impossible question to answer – as a lower sex drive occurs on a case by case basis. However, we have two main categories that tend to cause low libido in women:
- Hormonal imbalances
- External or emotional variables
By their mid-late thirties, most women experience a decrease in hormone production – specifically:
A decreased sex drive is a symptom that frequently occurs during this time, among others. Fast forward ten years to the mid-late forties and an even more significant decrease in libido often happens.
So this is one piece of the puzzle – naturally occurring hormonal imbalances that happen as women age are almost always one culprit of low libido.
External and Emotional Variables
But there’s more – time and time again, studies have shown that external factors have an impact on women’s sex drives. This could be anything from relationship issues to stress to just plain exhaustion.
And of course, the hormonal changes women experience as they enter their late thirties onward tend to cause greater:
- Sleep loss
So, all of the things that might inhibit your sex drive!
Got It, but What’s the Solution?
We can start by telling you that in most cases, a pharmaceutical pill will not address hormonal imbalances or emotional variables. What does address both of those factors, though, is EvexiPEL’s tried and true integrated approach to hormone optimization, hormone pellets. Here’s why our approach works!
Instead of putting something synthetic into your body (which often either doesn’t work or works so sporadically that your body spends most of its time trying to play catch up), we use hormone pellets derived from natural, plant-based substances.
This means we can cater each pellet to each patient’s individual needs. It also means that the pellets will metabolize naturally into your body, without causing adverse side effects.
This is particularly effective in cases of low libido, where a large part of the issue can usually be treated by addressing hormonal imbalances.
We Can Help
We’re prepared to “attack” on all cylinders. At EvexiPEL, we don’t just stick a pellet in your body and move on!
Our practitioners spend as much time as necessary, talking with their patients. This means they will not stop until they have uncovered the root cause (or causes) of the issues their patients are having.
This could require:
- Several tests and follow-up tests
- Multiple conversations
- Open communication
Whatever you need, our providers will be there for you. Once the root cause of – in this case – low libido – is uncovered, our practitioners will work with you to devise a unique and effective treatment plan.
With issues such as a decreased sex drive, this treatment plan will often involve what is sometimes thought of as unconventional treatment methods.
This could mean seeking counseling detoxifying your environment or emotional well-being, nutritional supplementation, and more.
