HYPOACTIVE SEXUAL DESIRE DISORDER(HSDD)
One of the most common sexual problem. The two key criteria for the diagnosis of hypoactive sexual desire disorder are (1) experiencing difficulty in the desire phase of the sexual response cycle, (2) marked distress due to the difficulty. The prevalence of low sexual desire was approximately three times greater than the prevalence of HSDD, suggesting that many women may not experience personal distress associated with their lack of desire. Desire disorder is the most common with an average 64% . Orgasmic difficulties were reported by 35% of women with a range of 16-48%. Arousal and Pain disorders had an average rate of 31% and 26%.
Studies reported a 10% prevalence of low sex desire in general population. Mainly anxiety, depression, thyroid dysfunction and urinary problems were contributing factors. Postmenopausal women also reported higher % of low desire disorder.
I would strongly advice women with low sexual desire to please feel free to consult us.
