April 20, 2023

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is present in approximately 8%-12% of women, and low sexual desire increases with age. HSDD is associated with lower quality of life and poorer emotional states. It remains underdiagnosed and undertreated. Patients are often reluctant to initiate discussions with physicians, and less than half seek help.

Are you aware of the latest research into HSDD, including oral medications, hormone infusions, and the effects of cognitive-behavioral therapy? Make sure you are prepared to help with this short quiz.
