Using Premarin cream, no sex drive

I am on primarin cream which my DR prescribed should be used twice a week- 0.05. It has helped with the vaginal dryness but I was expecting my libido to be back already - not as I would want it to be. Some of my friends who have had hysterectomy done said their's so high after about 3mths, they just want to have sex everyday. I am still waiting for this to happen - I really don't want to take anything else like testosterone.

Re: switching from plain estrogen to est/testosterone combo

Premarin cream is used vaginally and does not cause significant systemic effects in most women. If you want the systemic effects of Premarin, including a possible return of libido, you need to take the oral tablets.

Re: Using Premarin cream, no sex drive

There are a lot of things that affect female arousal and desire for sex, but I think having enough systemic estrogen is a key factor.

Re: Using Premarin cream, no sex drive

Well, and Premarin is a mixture of almost 20 hormones, a few of which have androgenic (testosterone-like) qualities, which is why sometimes women on Premarin do not need to supplement with testosterone to have a healthy sex drive.

Re: Using Premarin cream, no sex drive

After so many years happily on bio-identical hormones, I would feel weird using Premarin, which is bio-identical to female horses!

I agree... but women have used it happily for generations; at one point in time it was the only HRT available.
