Medical Alternative for hsdd than Addyi

Im premenopausal & suffer from hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). I had normal sexual desire and have lost it. Ive noticed that it has impacted my marriage the last year. My low sex drive has made my husband feel rejected which has caused major concerns in his mind. At this point Ive tried all the nonmedical interactions and those don’t seem to make me want it anymore. I need medical intervention. Im not interested in taking Addyi because of contraindications so what are my alternatives?

Hello. Thank you for writing.

From what I could find, Addyi is the best option. You should ask your doctor as well. Originally developed as an antidepressant, Flibanserin (Addyi) is a prescription medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for low sexual desire in premenopausal women. A daily pill, Addyi may boost sex drive in women who experience low sexual desire.
