HSDD has been medically recognized as a condition for decades and is the most common form of female dysfunction.
Sexual response is complex for both men and women.
Studies show that low sexual desire affects millions of women in the US and 1 in 10 women are distressed by it, which means they are experiencing HSDD.
Lack of sexual desire can have a biological basis. Brain scan studies show markedly less activity in areas of the brain that are important in sexual response for women who suffer from HSDD.
