Cycle 2 – Module 6 – Lecture 3: Hormone Therapies for Female Sexuality (2h17)


This enlightening video lecture offers precious insight in efficient treatments of sexual dysfunction in women by correcting hormone deficiencies with hormone supplements.

Crucial information is provided on the hormones that trigger and enhance sexual desire in women. Testosterone is the most potent one and usually constitutes the most potent treatment to improve libido in women to think of. However, in order to avoid virilizing side effects n women, transdermal estradiol and progesterone need to be administered simultaneously to testosterone. Estradiol may also further improve libido in women, whereas progesterone reduces sexual desire in women. DHEA has good effects on libido, better than in men but much less than testosterone and it takes a more time – 2-4 months – before full efficacy is obtained. Oxytocin increases romantic feelings, thereby also improving libido. Other hormones and hormone therapies that may alos improve sexual desire are thyroid and cortisol. Cortisol gives the energy to make the steps to get in movement and express sexual desire. Thyroid hormones increase production of libido-enhancing hormones, such as testosterone, DHEA and oxytocin. Hyperthyroidism reduces libido and may cause sexual dysfunction in women.

In women, the 2 major hormone therapies that increase the frequency and intensity of orgasm are oxytocin and dihydrotestosterone.

To increase fertility in women, thyroid and growth hormone may help. Also, high levels of estradiol in the follicular phase (preovulatory peak) and high levels of progesterone in the luteal phase may optimize ovulation and fertility.

 The observational studies and randomized controlled trials showing these links and the efficacy of hormone therapies in the various sexual and fertility disorders are shown with practical tips to apply in practice.

This session is rich in pictures and scientific data.
