Horny Goat Weed for Women??

If there are any women at all that post on this board: Have you tried horny goat weed to boost your sex drive? Did it work? I need serious help in this department.

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

Anybody? I'm going to buy it tomorrow. Btw, is this board just for men? Every time I post on here I don't get much response. Maybe no women have this problem? Mine stems from lowered testosterone from being on an SSRI antidepressant for 8 years. I've posted on the Hormone Problems board, too, about this. No answer there either.....hmm.....

You might have better response there as this is the male side of the board..

Good Luck!

[This board is for both male and female sexual disfunction. The board you mentioned she post on is not appropriate for sexual topics and would be deleted there. This is the correct board for her post. Thanks.]

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

Anyone else?? Does HGW increase testosterone like it claims to? I don't want to do any injections, creams, or pills btw.

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

Thanks anyway. It's supposed to work for both sexes, at least it claims to. Maybe someone will come along who's tried it and had success with it. So far I've been taking it for a week, but it doesn't seem to be working. I started with only one pill a day (1,000 mg), though, because I'm sensitive to side effects. I've had no adverse effects from it yet, but, again, no real interest either. Maybe it's time to up it to two a day like the label recommends.

Don't worry hun, you're not the only woman here.

Sorry I don't know anything about hgw but here's to hoping it helps! IF it does, keep me updated, I might like to try it.

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

Thanks! I was beginning to wonder. I actually just recently stopped taking it because it was stopping my menstrual cycle. I'm not pregnant and my husband and I don't want to be either. We use condoms and chart my ovulation to prevent pregnancy because I can't take hormonal birth control due to side effects, and I can't have something like the hgw screwing up my cycles. It also didn't help me with the libido thing anyway, oh well. They make hgw formulas just for women, but I'm afraid to try them now because of what this one did. I was taking one made for men. Most of the women ones that I've came across have to be taken an hour or so before 'activity' and since I'm not really interested in having sex at all, that type of dosing schedule doesn't work for me, if you know what I mean. I was looking more for something that I could take every day and hopefully just have it work that way.

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

Look into L-Arginine. It supposedly works the same way as the prescription meds; by increasing the blood flow to the "extremities". This is helpful to men and women. Also, I had the same effect from the antidepressant Celexa, and the doc added Wellbutrin to help mediate the effects (not just no sex drive, but anti-sex drive!). The Wellbutrin helps some, and the arginine helps a lot, but if you take a full dose, you may get a headache a few hours later, I did. This is also a possible side effect from the prescription meds. This stuff is just hit-or-miss sometimes, isn't it?

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

lol "exremities"

I'm on Celexa and Wellbutrin as well, but I haven't seen any changes in my sex drive. (darn!) I could be on a way different dose than you though. Of course, sex is a whole different ball game to me compared to sex drive alone.

As for hgw, doesn't look like I'll be taking that any time soon. I like my cycle where it is, thank you!

Re: Horny Goat Weed for Women??

Thanks a lot guys, nice to see this thread getting some activity on it.

Texanne -

Is L-Arginine an amino acid? If so, I drink a whey protein shake that has 505 mgs of it in one scoop. I work out four days a week and I drink it before and after my workouts.

Texanne & Flourish -

I was on Prozac for eight years, and at one point I did add Wellbutrin to try to help the libido problem, and it helped some, but it made my hair fall out. Definitely not a good trade-off, especially since I had already been losing hair on the Prozac. Adding the Wellbutrin just made me lose more, so I stopped taking it.
