What medications can a woman take to increase sexual desire?

None. But if you are willing, try some non-pharmaceutical aides. Whatever used to peak your sexual interest might work again. 

  • Long, hot bubble bath - together.
  • Lower your stress level if possible. It’s hard to get aroused when you don't know where the next meal is coming from or you just found out your teenager is Bipolar.
  • Go away to a relaxing and rejuvenating environment, whether that be the 24/7 lights of Vegas or the tall redwoods in California.
  • Watch porn without disgust.

Mostly, get off your own back. Both you and your partner should ease off on the expectations and you just might find your on/off switch.
