Oxytocin is a hormone that is produced by the hypothalamus in the brain and spread throughout the body through the pituitary gland.
It plays a major role in:
- Producing childbirth contractions.
- Treating female sexual health issues, such as Female Orgasmic Disorder and Female Arousal Disorder.
- Helping with postpartum depression (symptoms of which include negative feelings toward the baby, lack of motivation, mood swings, change in appetite, weight changes and even thoughts of suicide).
Westchester Compounding Pharmacy has prescription-only oxytocin medications in a dosage that is right for you to help with your sexual health or postpartum depression issues. It can be sprayed intranasally (through the nose) or applied to the skin as a cream.
As with our other treatments, Westchester Compounding Pharmacy will work closely with you and your physician to find the right method of treatment for you.
