Dr. Anita Clayton is one of the country's leading experts on female sexuality. We talked with her recently about hypoactive sexual desire disorder, or low libido. She discussed the use of bupropion and buspirone as well as ways to improve arousal. There are also methods to improve orgasm for women who have difficulty with that. Dr. Clayton also discussed overcoming delayed orgasm and reviewed medications that can interfere with comfortable sexual functioning. We also spoke about common mistakes that can contribute to the persistence of sexual problems. To listen to this extended interview, click on the blue arrow.

A resource for what to prescribe might be compounding pharmacists. They are the ones who know which doctors are prescribing what to the patients who are satisfied with the results.

Tibilone has been talked about for years and still can't get it here. I had testosterone pellets and estrogen pellets put into my hip and believe me that works. I am 74years old plus improved my bone density. Let's face it, this is one of the worst problems and drs. are just not concerned about it. It is all about the man's penis.

While buproprion and buspirone might be beneficial, I would highly encourage any women with sexual problems to be aware of the products that can be made personally for them by their local compounding pharmacist

With a doctor's prescription your neighborhood compounding pharmacist can make creams or vaginal suppositories that can increase libido, decrease dryness or alleviate other sexual problems related to hormones.

Many women are already doing this. It is generally thought to be safer than taking oral hormones as the dose is decrease when application is direct.

Natural products can not be patented by large pharmaceutical companies so they don't make them. This is a great benefit to women because the prescription can be formulated personally for you your body and your symptoms.

Rather than relying on side-effects of bupropion and buspirone, I think you'll find much more benefit and less side-effects in a compounded product.

Sorry if I sounds like an advertiser, but I believe in it. I'll be making these compounds once I'm a pharmacist.

I need help with low libido, practically non-existant. I am told I cannot use hormones because of breast cancer history. I had a double mastectomy in 9/99 for stage 0 ductal carcinoma in situ; no positive nodes. On biopsy during the surgery was also lobular carcinoma scattered in both breasts.

Any advice?
Thank you.
