4 Natural Remedies for Female Sexual Dysfunction

Female sexual dysfunction ranges anywhere from pain upon intercourse to inability to orgasm to low libido, and it’s a lot more common than you’d think.

A shocking 43 percent of American women suffer with some type of sexual dysfunction. Equally as troubling, a whopping 24-37 percent of women regularly have trouble reaching orgasm. And while many women accept this as an unfortunate side effect of their gender, it doesn’t have to be that way. There are plenty of natural ways to address sexual dysfunction, from lifestyle shifts to stress management to sex therapy to herbal supplementation. Here are 4 widely regarded herbal remedies that support balanced female sexual function:


This amino acid may act as an aphrodisiac due to its ability to elevate nitric oxide levels and increase blood flow. While your body can technically synthesize its own L-arginine, it can be healthful to consume it from food sources, like turkey, eggs, pumpkin seeds, peanuts, spirulina, chickpeas, and lentils.


This adaptogenic herb is all about promoting hormonal balance. Some studies have shown that maca can increase sexual desire, but researchers also note that more studies are needed. It is high in both iodine and zinc, which support female hormonal balance. Plus, powdered maca tastes great in a smoothie.


Another adaptogenic herb, ashwagandha directly supports the thyroid and the adrenals, the hormonal centers of your body. It has been shown to powerfully reduce cortisol, the stress hormone, meaning it can be extremely useful in treating adrenal fatigue. What do the adrenals and hormonal production have to do with sexual dysfunction? Your hormones decide everything that goes on in your body. If they are out of whack, any number of areas could fall out of balance as well, including your sexual function. By bring balance to your hormonal production, especially your sex hormones, your libido and sexual pleasure should improve as well.


Since menopause can be a time of hormonal chaos for women, sexual dysfunction and low libido become even more prevalent. An excellent promoter of libido, one study showed that Asian Ginseng may increase sexual desire in women going through menopause.

Also be sure not to underestimate the power of diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management in your sexual health. Chronic overexercising, a nutrient-lacking diet, poor sleep quality, and poor stress management all contribute to sexual dysfunction. Work with a naturopath to make sure your lifestyle supports your sexual health.

If you have a female disorder like PCOS or endometriosis, healing sexual dysfunction will require a litany of small changes to your lifestyle. There is no one fix. It is best to see out the advice of a certified professional if you are struggling with sexual dysfunction and know that there is a path to better health.
