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.
