Commonly Requested Female Sexual Dysfunction & Libido Compounding Ideas


During peri-menopause and menopause, vaginal atrophy and sexual dysfunction are often reported as problematic. Untreated vaginal atrophy can lead to painful sex and low desire. We recognize that sexual dysfunction can be caused by other causes, and a thorough evaluation needs to be done to determine if hormones or other therapies may be of benefit. Currently, there are not any FDA approved treatments for women for sexual dysfunction. Treating vaginal atrophy can include both hormone and hormone free treatment options. The chart lists active ingredients that can be used to treat vaginal atrophy and sexual dysfunction. Some information listed is anecdotal, however worthy of mention. 

Testosterone, dehydroeipandrosterone and sildenafil have been studied in women for sexual dysfunction; however there are no products currently on the market for women. Often compounds for sexual dysfunction will contain several actives, designed to increase nitric oxide for vasodilation in genital tissue. Many over-the- counter products designed for women contain menthol, niacin or arginine. As compounds, many practitioners will add niacin or arginine to topical creams containing sildenafil and/or testosterone.
