Female Sexual Difficulties

what is hsdd?

Have you seen my libido?

One minute you’re hot and bothered, the next you’re just bothered. If you’re experiencing low libido it can raise a lot of questions.

“How much sex should I be having?”

“Will my libido come back?”

“What’s wrong with me?”

“Am I alone?”

Unfortunately, the answers aren’t as simple as the questions. Every woman is different. There are some who are satisfied just getting their cuddle on. How much desire you feel at any given time can depend on what’s happening in your life, your mind, or your body.

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) is different, though.

If we can get technical for a minute, health experts define HSDD as the absence of sexual fantasies and thoughts, and/or desire for or receptivity to, sexual activity, which causes personal distress or interpersonal difficulties and is not caused by a medical condition or drug. Basically, you’re a healthy woman except for the fact that your desire to think about or have sex has faded — and it bothers you.

In a recent poll, nine in ten women said they think about their level of sexual desire.* *Based on an online poll of 2,501 women aged 21-49 who are not experiencing menopause symptoms.

Is it just me?

Having HSDD may make you feel like you’re alone. You’re not. HSDD is the most common form of FSD. It’s believed approximately 4 million women have it.

HSDD is classified as a medical condition.
