Female Arousal Cream
Empower Pharmacy and other compounding pharmacies make this cream. Has anyone ever tried it? DW has no problem with orgasms but wondering if this would make them even better. Can it get “too good”?
General Information: Arousal Cream is a topical cream that, when applied to the clitoris or external genitalia, can increase blood flow to the applied area and has been reported to improve sensitivity and rates of orgasm. Compounded from a mixture of prescription products, Arousal Cream is designed to act locally without substantial absorption into the blood stream. This transdermal (absorbed through the skin) cream is comprised of six different medications and products which include: aminophylline, ergoloid mesylate, L-arginine, pentoxifylline, sildenafil citrate, and testosterone. This synergistic medication draws upon the properties of each ingredient (one bronchodilator, four vasodilators, and the potent sex steroid hormone testosterone) that can provide female libido (sex drive) and sexual stimulation enhancement.
One of the ingredients listed is sildenafil citrate, better known as Viagra. According to the Mayo Clinic website, it’s not approved for use in women, and a quick search of pubmed turns up papers which suggest there’s essentially no evidence that viagra works in women.
What I can find via a quick web search suggests that testosterone is only indicated in menopausal women.
I’d give it a wide berth unless specifically recommended by a healthcare professional.
Arousal cream may help. It’s not a libido booster but supposed to help with orgasms. Better orgasms may increase her desire/libido?
That looks like “scream cream”, a common formulation that is prescribed for women with difficulty orgasming, with a few added ingredients.
Here is the formula for scream cream.
Ergoline Mesylates 0.05%
You can get it at any compounding pharmacy. My wife has a perscription for it, but has not tried it yet.
We have used Lifestyles Excite. It is available OTC. It works. It contains mainly menthol, which she finds somewhat irritating.
But I’m with David — if nothing is wrong, don’t fix it.
