Alternative medicine

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Natural products are available that may help some women who have difficulty reaching orgasm. These oils and supplements work by increasing sensation in the clitoris and surrounding tissue.

The following products may benefit some women with anorgasmia:

  • Zestra. This botanical massage oil helps warm the clitoris and may increase sexual arousal and orgasm.
  • ArginMax. This oral nutritional supplement contains L-arginine, a substance that relaxes blood vessels and increases blood flow to the genital area, and the clitoris in particular.

Talk with your doctor before trying any natural therapies. These products can cause side effects and may interact with other medications. Your doctor can help determine if they are safe for you.
