January 29, 2020 Weight and libido are linked, but it is possible to experience those bow-chicka-wow-wow feelings without losing any weight. Learn how to lose your inhibitions, boost your libido, and regain your sex drive.
Ever felt your desire flicker along with the fit of your jeans? The weight loss and libido connection is real: Your readiness to romp often depends on how you’re feeling about your naked body.
“Many women lose their sexual confidence when they put on weight, but insecurity can also stem from something as subtle as feeling like you have poor muscle tone,” says Susan Kellogg Spadt, Ph.D., director of female sexual medicine at the Center for Pelvic Medicine, Academic Urology in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania. “In my practice, I see it daily in women of all weights.”

Get “the little pink pill” Flibanserin used For Women with low desire low sex drive from Center for Pelvic Medicine in Rosemont PA
The pill is to boost women’s sexual desire. The “little pink pill” is one step closer to going on the market. After saying no twice, an FDA panel finally recommended the first medication for female sexual dysfunction. Unlike drugs for men, like Viagra, which improve blood flow, Flibanserin is an anti-depressant that works on the pleasure center of the brain.
The pill, however, comes with side effects, which include insomnia, nausea and dizziness. As always, women will need to decide whether the risks versus the benefits compared to other treatment alternatives are worth it for them.
The panel of Food and Drug Administration advisers voted 18-6 in favor of Sprout Pharmaceutical’s daily pill, flibanserin, on the condition that the company develops a plan to manage its risks.
