ShytoBuy is a UK site with a range of products to treat female sexual dysfunction and anorgasmia. A US site also offers a product called V-Cream, which is described as being a female orgasm enhancer to make orgasms easier, more frequent and of an increased intensity.

A pharmaceutical product currently being marketed for the treatment of female sexual dysfunction is a product called Intrinsa Patches. Intrinsa patches contain testosterone, which is known to increase libido, and are only suitable for menopausal women who have had their uterus and ovaries removed. Note that many women should not take Intrinsa, including any women who have suffered from hormone related cancer or those suffering from heart, liver or kidney disease or diabetes.
