If this pill existed, Jackie, it would not be a secret as it would be a best seller! There are several reasons for low libido in women and these need to assessed. Some such reasons can include: depression, hormonal problems or shifts, tiredness, side effects of medication (including oral contraceptives), disatisfaction with the relationship, anxiety due to trauma (current or past). It is also a very common experience for women in a long term relationships to lose their hunger for sex after a while. This is a very frustrating but very real problem and it needs to be addressed as it frequently contributes to conflict between partners. It can be helpful to see a professional experienced in this work in order to identify any factors that contribute to the loss of libido and to help you and your partner to figure out how you can optimise your sexual desire.
