9780688172251: I'm Not in the Mood: What Every Woman Should Know About Improving Her Libido

The "hormone of desire," testosterone, acts on the brain to stimulate sexual interest, sensitivity to sexual stimulation, and orgasmic ability in both sexes. The amount of testosterone circulating in a woman's blood declines by about 50 percent between her twenties and fifties. The most common complaint associated with this decline is a seemingly unexplainable decrease or loss of sexual desire and enjoyment.

In I'm Not in the Mood, Dr. Reichman reveals the effectiveness of small doses of testosterone in reviving sexual desire and pleasure for women. Questions answered and topics discussed include:

  • Why and when do women make male hormones?

  • Where do all our male hormones go?

  • Behavior, life changes, and medical problems that affect our libido

  • Medications that affect our libido

  • Will creams, pills, lozenges, patches, or shots help?

  • When you should see a psychiatrist, psychologist, or sex therapist

  • How to discuss libido issues with your doctor

  • How to reach your biologic sexual potential

Review:

"Libido maintenance is complicated," admits Judith Reichman, M.D., the frank "hormone maven" you've seen on PBS, The Today Show, and Oprah!. Few physicians are able to help or are comfortable helping women whose dwindling sexual urge interferes with sexual pleasure, intimacy, and expression of affection. I'm Not in the Mood examines the medical reasons for the loss of libido as women age. Reichman concludes that although estrogen replacement makes sexual activity more comfortable and pleasurable, it has no effect on sexual desire, whereas testosterone does. "From an ovarian point of view, many of us are testosterone-deprived, if not downright deficient," asserts Reichman. Testosterone deficiency can result in diminished desire and arousability, insensitivity of the clitoris and nipples, and difficulty reaching orgasm. She discusses the "good news" about and "dark side" of taking testosterone.

Reichman wisely avoids blaming testosterone deficiency for every sexual woe, however. She describes "Seven Sexual Saboteurs": psychological concerns, couple trouble, medications, disease, surgery, pain, and a partner with erectile difficulties. For each, she explains the problem and her recommended solution. She discusses (and, generally, dismisses) other products that are used or advertised as libido enhancers and gives advice about how to talk to your partner and to a sex therapist. --Joan Price

From the Back Cover:

In this groundbreaking bestseller, Dr. Judith Reichman empowers women to "get in the mood" and function at their sexual maximum.

If a man is suffering from a sexual disorder that leads to impotency, it's Viagra to the rescue! If a woman has sexual problems, the attitude from her doctor is likely to be: Use a lubricant and "grin and bear it". Now, Judith Reichman, M.D., addresses this medical bias and provides a timely antidote for women experiencing a decrease or loss of sexual desire and enjoyment. In I'm Not in the Mood, Dr. Reichman discusses
-- Questions that will help you assess your sexual function and libido
-- The Seven Sexual Saboteurs that affect your libido
-- When you should see a psychiatrist, psychologist, or sex therapist
-- How to discuss libido issues with your doctor
-- Why and when women make male hormones
-- Where all your male hormones go
-- Which testosterone preparation will help and how to get it
-- How to reach your biologic sexual potential
