Sexual Health

Female sexual arousal occurs when chemicals in the body known as neurotransmitters cause muscles to relax, resulting in clitoral and labial engorgement. The clitoris contains two columns of erectile tissue and has a blood supply that is similar to the penis. This type of response can also be caused when patients take the medication aminophylline. Topical creams that contain aminophylline and the drug arginine have been reported to successfully stimulate erections and increase sensitivity in males and females. This preparation is often referred to as "Scream Cream".1

Decreased testosterone levels seen in menopausal and elderly women are associated with a loss of sexual desire and sexual pleasure, feelings of diminished physical well-being, and persistent fatigue.2 Randomized, placebo-controlled trials have consistently shown that transdermal testosterone therapy improves sexual desire, arousal, orgasm frequency and satisfaction in premenopausal and postmenopausal women presenting with sexual desire/arousal problems.3
