Exercise Might Lift Libido in Women on Antidepressants

(HealthDay News) — Exercise might help treat sexual problems in women taking antidepressants, especially if their workouts occur right before sex, new research reveals.

The study included 52 women who had reduced desire and other sexual side effects while taking antidepressants.

For the first three weeks of the study, the women did not exercise. They were then divided into two groups for the next three weeks, with one group assigned to exercise immediately before sex and the other group assigned to exercise in a way that was not timed to having sex. The researchers then reversed the two groups for another three weeks.
