Addressing Sexual Health with Compounded Medications, Nitric Oxide, and More!

Town & Country Compounding can provide the highest quality of compounded medications for women’s and men’s health issues.

Aging and health conditions can affect the sex lives or sexual health in both men and women. Conditions such as menopause, erectile dysfunction (ED), low testosterone, prostate cancer, and breast cancer, to name a few, can cause symptoms that may make sex difficult or painful.

Are your hormones out of balance? Test at home to find out!

Female/Male Saliva Profile I, II, III (Saliva Testing Kits)

$170.00 – $260.00

Good basic assessment of sex steroid and adrenal hormones collected in the morning when levels should be at their peak. Five (5) Tests: Estradiol (E2), Progesterone (Pg), Testosterone (T), DHEA-S, and Cortisol (C1) up to 4x daily.

Women: Hormones and Painful Intercourse

Hormones that are out of balance can cause problems. Vaginal atrophy or vaginal thinning often goes hand in hand with vaginal dryness (lack of lubrication), painful intercourse, and decreased arousal.

During menopause when estrogen levels decrease, the vaginal tissue can become dry and thin, and have less lubrication. Lower amounts of estrogen can also cause hot flashes and night sweats, which can drain your energy and reduce your desire for sex.

Estrogen Vaginal Formulas

  • Estriol Vaginal Cream
  • Estradiol Vaginal Cream
  • Estradiol Mini Vagi-tabs

Non-Estrogen Vaginal Formulas

  • T&C Enhanced Vaginal Moisturizing Formula Aloe
  • DHEA Vaginal Cream
  • DHEA Vaginal Suppositories

 

Several studies suggest that estradiol (E2) and testosterone (T) and use of hormone replacement therapy may have an effect on sexual health and desire.

We always hear about “Low T” for men, but women can have it too. Although testosterone prescriptions for women are not commercially available at “big box” chain pharmacies, they can be compounded and customized into topical creams or gel forms in the dose that you need by a compounding pharmacy.

 

During menopause, the clitoris becomes less sensitive, possibly due to reduced estrogen levels and changes in the vascular and nervous systems.

Circulation to the Vaginal Area

Sexual responsiveness in women requires adequate blood flow to the vagina and clitoris. There are certain drugs that are known to enhance blood flow and are often prescribed in topical vaginal formulas.

Scream Cream, Yell Gel, O-baby Formulas (Rx)

  • Aminophylline, Arginine Vaginal Cream or gel
  • Sildenafil, Aminophylline, Arginine Vaginal Cream or gel
  • Papaverine, Arginine Vaginal Cream or gel
  • Sildenafil Vaginal Cream or gel (the drug that is in Viagra)
  • Oxytocin vaginal cream or gel

Men: The Journey of Erectile Dysfunction

When men first take medication for ED, they may start with commercially available oral medications. Doses and medications are often adjusted to try to get the optimal response. When men do not get the results they are hoping for, doctors may try combining drugs into a sublingual lozenge or using injections.

Note: Traditional ED medications may be ineffective when Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in the body are not optimal.

Examples of Compounded Lozenges

  • Oxytocin lozenge
  • Tadalafil + Oxytocin lozenge
  • Sildenafil 150 mg lozenge
  • Tadalafil lozenge
  • Vardenafil lozenge
  • Sildenafil + Tadalafil lozenge
  • Vardenafil + Tadalafil lozenge
  • Custom lozenge

Examples of Injections

  • Bi-mix
  • Tri-mix
  • Quad-mix

Pharmacist/Owner John Herr has been helping men with unique medication options for ED for years. He has done presentations along with various urologists and Boston Scientific, to help show men their options along the entire journey with ED.

When a patient starts to have the first signs of ED, regardless of age, it is important to get it checked out due to the fact that ED can be one of the first signs of heart disease.

Nitric Oxide (NO) Support Supplements (women and men)

Hormone levels are important, lubrication is important, and so is nitric oxide. Improved circulation can improve sexual response.

Nitric oxide (NO) is an important signaling molecule in healthy circulation and also has a central role in sexual response to arousal. NO acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain affecting the release of oxytocin which is central in the modulation of sexual behavior. Oxytocin is called the Love Hormone or the Cuddle Chemical. Oxytocin increases nitric oxide production, and levels are greatly increased after an orgasm.

Nutritional Supplements for Men’s Sexual Health

Good blood flow is essential for good erectile functioning, which may be enhanced with Nitric Oxide (NO) supplements.

Please contact us to have a Nitric Oxide (NO) test strip sent to you, to see if your levels of NO are sufficient.

Most people who test their levels are low! Because of this, we will send you a couple of strips when you purchase Nitric Oxide (NO) Supplements.

Nitric Oxide (NO) Supplements

$59.99

Good blood flow is essential for good erectile functioning, which may be enhanced with Nitric Oxide (NO) supplements.

Sexual Health: Nitric Oxide Test Strips

There are many factors that affect your nitric oxide levels including age, stress, alcohol, diabetes, and smoking. For both men and women, the enzyme dependent pathway for producing nitric oxide is reduced to 50% of its capacity by the time we are 40. It is therefore important to maintain NO levels through an alternative pathway which relies on nitrate intake from diet or supplementation to maintain adequate circulation.

By taking a 15-second saliva test today you can check your NO levels and, if needed, learn from us some quick and easy ways to improve your levels.
