There's No Pill for That - Prescription and OTC Drugs can Dull Vaginal Sensitivity

Metabolite buildup from years of taking multiple medications can have unforeseen effects on the body and sexual function.
Case #: 1397

If you were to peek into my medicine cabinet, you would see every brand and every milligram dosage of aspirin. You would likely see a few cough medicines, and you would definitely see prescription-grade medications. Why do I have so much medicine? Well, for one, I need it. And two, I get sick often. I carry prescription pill organizers like they’re pens. And I always take medicine. Now, I have a new problem: vaginal insensitivity. Unfortunately, I cannot just take pills for this problem, otherwise, I would. What did I do to my body?

Thanks to modern pharmaceutical technologies, it seems like there's a pill for just about everything. Unfortunately, as most people are aware, pharmaceutical drugs aren't magic. They have yet to solve many health problems, and some medications are only minimally effective for their intended purpose.
Furthermore, of you take medications for a long time, or take multiple medications together, they can start to have unpleasant side effects, including ones that aren't written on their labels. Furthermore, since some drug side effects don't appear until after prolonged use, it can be difficult to document them during initial clinical trials. There are a number of prescription and OTC (over-the-counter) drugs that are known to cause sexual problems, such as vaginal insensitivity and orgasm difficulty, in some users. And you're right: there is no pill for that.
Medications and Sexual Function

Many prescription medications, including birth control pills, painkillers, antidepressants, and others, can disrupt hormone and biochemical levels in the brain and bodily tissues. This is also true for many OTC drugs. As with other drug side effects, the risk of sexual side effects increases with each new medication you add to your regimen. Even drugs that seem harmless, such as antihistamines and decongestants, can sometimes affect sexual arousal or orgasm. Sexual problems may start to appear if drug ingredients or interactions are preventing certain processes and responses that normally occur before, during, or after sex.
One way that drug chemicals can interfere with your sex life is by blocking two types of prostaglandins, E-1 and E-3, which counteract prostaglandin E-2 to resolve inflammation. Without E-1 and E-3, micro-abrasions caused by the friction of sexual stimulation cannot heal as well as they normally would, which leads to scarring and loss of elasticity in vaginal and erectile tissues.
Certain medications can also decrease normal amounts of nitric oxide, an important chemical for initiating and maintaining physical arousal. Without arousal, it's impossible to have an orgasm. Additionally, antibiotics and some other drugs can suppress you immune system, which you may not realize makes sex more uncomfortable by promoting vaginal infections and UTI.
Making your Medications and your Sex Life Get Along

The best way to eliminate drug side effects is by minimizing the number of drugs you take. This might include phasing out the cough medicine -- after all, coughing is how your body clears contagion buildup from your lungs when you are sick. If you suppress this immune response, you only prolong the sickness. It would also help if you can limit your use of aspirin to occasions when you can't function without it.
If you take prescription medications, you can talk to your doctor about side effects that you are experiencing, and he or she may be able to switch you to a different drug. Herbal remedies that target the metabolite buildup of drugs may speed your recovery. (SEE: Herbal Remedy for Clitoral & Vaginal Desensitization)
NOTE: Make sure to talk to your doctor before starting any herbal supplement to avoid interactions with medications.
