This section will give you a quick overview of what sex hormones are and how they can help to reduce pain, decrease sexual interest, help with erectile dysfunction, increase libido, reduce libido, and more. Many of these are prescription and/or over-the-counter medicines. Most women use testosterone, and therefore they may not need to do research. A lot of women who have sex have a hormonal imbalance. This often comes with increased libido and increased desire. Some women with hormonal imbalances use testosterone and also find they have an increase in desire and have less pain, but they often don't get the same effects in the pill. There are a lot of studies on these hormones, but I'll try to be brief and not get too detailed here. Sex hormones are made in your testes by the body, then transferred to the ovaries, or to the Fallopian tubes in women and into the ovaries or womb in men. They can then affect how your body responds to sexual stimulation, which in turn affects your sex drive, mood, and even the quality of your relationships with people. In most women, the hormones estrogen and progesterone are converted to testosterone. These hormones are often used to increase the size of your breasts or your waist, or increase sexual desire.
