Low libido is more common in women than men. In fact, it's the most common sexual problem reported by women.
Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSSD) is characterized as a lack or absence of sexual fantasies or sexual desire. Women who have enjoyed sex in the past but just aren't interested for several months may suffer from HSSD.
Low libido can vary from person to person. Some women fail to initiate sex but can respond to advances. Others may not initiate or respond to sexual advances. Relationship problems may result if partners have a disparity of sexual desire. Distress and lack of confidence can affect women with HSSD because of the condition. These women need patience and support while facing this condition.
Addyi is a new prescription drug that works on the chemicals in the brain responsible for sexual desire. This may help some women improve libido.
Listen in as Dr. Sheryl Kingsberg discusses low libido, HSSD, and the treatment possibilities of Addyi.
