Nope. Metformin works with the insulin already provided by your body to keep your blood sugars stable. The only side affects known are:

  • Low Blood Sugars
  • Dizziness
  • Light-headedness
  • Yellow Fingernails
  • Taste changes
  • Abnormal stools
  • Muscle pain
  • Lightheadedness or dizziness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Nail problems
  • Increased sweating
  • Flu-like symptoms, such as fever, muscle pain, chills, and weakness
  • Flushing (a reddening of the skin, especially in the face)
  • Feelings of a forcefully or rapidly beating heart (heart palpitations).
  • Diarehha
  • Gas
  • Bloating
  • Indegestion problems

Ways you can naturally help your body increase it's sex drive include:

1. Exercise. Aerobic workouts (running, biking, swimming) not only improve blood flow to sex organs but can also boost your mood, pumping up "feel good" brain chemicals called endorphins. An increase in testosterone levels about one hour after working out can also leave you feeling sexier. Do avoid overstraining yourself, though, since extreme exercise actually lowers testosterone levels.

2. Relax. Too much stress increases the stress hormone cortisol, which causes testosterone to plummet. Find a way to tune out for 15 minutes a day, whether through meditation, yoga, chilling to music, or schmoozing with a friend.

3. Add a little novelty. Recent research shows that partaking in new and challenging experiences with your partner can boost the brain chemical dopamine, which helps fuel sex drive. These don't even need to be in the bedroom. Enter a race together, on a tandem bike. Get a little lost on a wilderness hike-without a map. Host a game night with friends where each couple kicks in $30 and the winning pair takes all.

4. Consider supplements. Ginkgo biloba has been used to treat sexual dysfunction, although the Mayo Clinic website says the evidence that it works is speculative at best. Still, it's relatively safe (just don't take it if you're on a blood thinner), and the placebo effect may be enough to put you in the mood. Vitamin B5 (pantothenic acid) could be useful, since it's critical for the manufacture of sex hormones in the adrenal glands. Choline, meanwhile, purportedly helps to enhance levels of acetylcholine, a brain chemical that sends sexual impulses from your brain to your sex organs.

5. Inhale. Certain scents are known to be attractive to women, according to this article. Supposedly, we're most attracted to sweaty men and musky odors, though I'm guessing it's probably pretty individualized. To each her own.
