10 Products to Spice Up the Romance
Looking to spend a little extra quality time with your significant other? Check out these products to help support libido, improve intimacy, and more.
Libido Cream (Recommended for Women)
This topical cream can be applied directly to intimate areas to increase blood flow, improve sensation, and potentially boost orgasm. There are three types of Libido Cream (also called Arousal Cream), which contain different ingredients depending on what you need.
This cream contains:
- L-Arginine — An essential amino acid that can help improve blood flow for more feeling and better orgasm. Blood flow is very important for sensation and arousal.
- Sildenafil — When applied topically, this medication can help relax smooth muscle and improve blood flow.
- Ergoloid Mesylates — This medication is another vasodilator that can expand blood vessels for improved blood flow.
- Pentoxyfilline — This medication works to help blood flow more smoothly for greater stimulation.
- Testosterone — This sex hormone helps support libido and sexual health in men and women.
L-Arginine is not recommended for those with genital herpes. Also, only patients on a hormone restoration protocol with Defy Medical can purchase this libido cream with Testosterone included.
This Libido Cream formula includes everything in Libido Cream 1 except for L-Arginine, which is not suitable for patients with genital herpes. This cream has been shown to improve blood flow, boost libido, and increase sensation in patients who have used it.
This Libido Cream includes everything in Libido Cream 1 except for Testosterone. It’s suitable for patients who are not on a TRT/HRT protocol but still want libido-boosting effects. The combination has been shown to help improve blood flow for more sensation, stronger arousal, and a better rate of orgasm.
Sildenafil is a very popular medication for encouraging solid and lasting erections in men. Many know it by its brand name, Viagra.
Sildenafil works by dilating the blood vessels and allowing for more blood flow. Strong erections rely on powerful blood flow. Sildenafil is what’s known as a PDE-5 inhibitor and vasodilator.
At Defy Medical, Sildenafil is available as an Oral Disintegrating Tablet (ODT). ODTs are placed on the tongue and dissolve within 60 seconds without water. There are many benefits to ODTs, including quicker onset of effects and avoiding the nausea sometimes associated with oral capsules.See Sildenafil in the Patient Portal
Tadalafil is another vasodilator that helps men have stronger erections. This medication encourages blood flow and helps to relax the smooth muscle. You may know it by the brand name Cialis or Adcirca.
Some men prefer Tadalafil over similar medications because Tadalafil has been shown to last longer.
Like Sildendafil, Tadalafil is available as an Oral Disintegrating Tablet, which you place on your tongue and let dissolve within a minute. ODTs avoid the digestive tract, leading to faster onset of action and fewer gastrointestinal side effects.See Tadalafil in the Patient Portal
Vardenafil is another PDE5-inhibitor and vasodilator that helps increase blood flow for better and stronger erections. Patients who experience side effects with similar medications may prefer Vardenafil.
Like the other vasodilators on this list, Vardenafil is available as an Oral Disintegrating Tablet. It dissolves on the tongue in around sixty seconds, with or without water.
Taking medication sublingually (via the salivary glands) helps avoid the nausea issues sometimes associated with vasodilator medications, plus allows the effects to kick in more quickly.See Vardenafil in the Patient Portal
Oxytocin is known as the “cuddle hormone” or the “hormone of love.” It plays a large role in human bonding and relationships.
Taking Oxytocin has shown promising results in encouraging relaxation, connection, and arousal, which can improve intimacy. It can also be used in combination with other sexual health medications for a compounded effect.
There are two forms of Oxytocin available:See Oxytocin in the Patient Portal
PT-141 or Bremelanotide is a peptide injection that can help encourage arousal and sex drive. It works on the central nervous system to create these effects. If you struggle with arousal but don’t have physical symptoms of sexual dysfunction, PT-141 may help.
PT-141 is mostly recommended for women, but gathering evidence shows that it can have similar libido-boosting effects in men. In studies, PT-141 showed up to a 50% increase in sexually satisfying experiences for women, and was 80% effective for men who don’t respond to Sildenafil or Tadalafil.See PT-141 in the Patient Portal
The medications above also come in combination formulas for greater effects. These include:
- Tadalafil with Oxytocin ODTs — This combination offers the benefits of the “cuddle hormone” while also encouraging erections in men.
- Bremelanotide, Oxytocin, and Tadalafil troches — This combination can boost relaxation (Oxytocin), encourage arousal (Bremelanotide) and promote healthy erections (Tadalafil).
