Dr. Tara Scott: Hormones and Female Libido (Video)

(Video Transcript)

Hi guys, Dr. Tara Scott with Strut Health talking about female libido. And today, I want to talk about estradiol and progesterone.

Those are the two hormones that are the dominant hormones within your menstrual cycle. And, the ratio of these two things does affect your libido.

If you actually look at the data on what was the thing that helped libido that much (and, believe me, there are not a lot of studies), estradiol patch or estrogen was the thing that affected people’s libidos the most.

There was something called the KEEPS trial that looked at an estradiol patch versus a synthetic estrogen. And, both of those things did help with desire.

Now, when we are talking about female libido, there is the desire and there’s the orgasm. And, there are also things that would impair comfort, like pain.

So, painful intercourse can be from the changes in the ratio of estrogen and progesterone. And, you can get those actually when you are on an oral contraceptive, because it’s shutting your progesterone down.

But, you can also get that as you age, when you have changes in estradiol levels. So, that is another thing that can affect your libido.
