I see quite a few posts regarding women’s libido and two things really stick out to me. The first is that almost all the entries are made by men and the second is hardly any mention is made regarding getting labs done.
There are so many factors that affect a woman’s libido, not just lack of a hormone(s). The first step in correcting a low libido is getting labs done, having a comprehensive test done to include everything including liver/kidney functioning, cholesterol, mineral levels (especially magnesium, which is essential part of processing that which is released by the endocrine system) testosterone levels, thyroid, free thyroid, and the big three, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.
Getting labs done rules out the physical basis for any issues that one might have including but not limited to: issues sleeping, irritability, memory loss, weight gain, weight loss, dry skin, edema, and the important one for the men, low libido.
Once labs have been done and the physiological aspects have been ruled out, it is time to look at other issues. Today’s expectations placed on women are much greater than in the past. Women are expected to work, take care of the household duties, watch the children, take care of her man, etc, etc, etc. Add to this the stress of a difficult job, dislike of a job, feeling over whelmed, wanting to have sex or be physically intimate just doesn’t make it to the top of the list. Not to mention that for women (as has been pointed out) the menstrual cycle also plays a big role in a woman’s libido.
People want to rush in and say “throw some test prop at her” but the issue is that adding testosterone may address a symptom and the physiological aspect but not the emotional aspect. If you haven’t noticed, when it comes to sex, women are emotional creatures, we have to “FEEL” like it. If we don’t feel in tune with our man or our lives are hectic and we are thinking about what we have to do later or in the morning, having sex isn’t going to make it to the list of priorities.
Suggesting that a woman use caber to treat low libido is just downright inexcusable especially without knowledge of labs. Prolactin levels are balanced by progesterone and dopamine. Messing around with caber would/could be disastrous as the cause is usually a tumor.
The real issue here is that we cannot solve “problems” by throwing a substance at it without finding the cause.
