What's REALLY Causing Your Low Sex Drive?

What’s REALLY Causing Your Low S£x Drive?

It’s the end of a long day and your partner wants to have sex. You’re so not into it and cite sheer exhaustion as yourlibido-squashing culprit. But truth be told, many women aren’t always as primed for sex as they’d like to be. In fact, for up to one-third of adult women, low sexual desire is achronic problem that interferes with their quality of life. Despite how common it is, this condition—known as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD)—is not well-known or understood.

According to a recent survey supported by HealthyWomen and Palatin Technologies, Inc. [Editor’s note: Palatin Technologies, Inc., is developing bremelanotide, an on-demand treatment for HSDD.], nearly half of premenopausal women (ages 30-50) say they’ve experienced low sexual desire at some point in their lives, yet only 14 percent were aware that HSDD was a medical condition. HSDD is a form of sexual desire disorder that can be defined as a deficiency or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity that causes marked distress or interpersonal difficulty. This under-reported and under-recognized sexual concern can take a real toll on a woman’s romantic relationships and self-esteem.

Low sexual desire is the most common form of female sexual dysfunction (FSD). FSD, the general medical term for disturbance in women’s sexual functioning, also includes female sexual arousal disorders, sexual pain disorders and female orgasmic disorder.

Symptoms of low sexual desire include:

  1. Lack of sexual thoughts
  2. Lack of sexual desire that cannot be attributed to any other physical or psychiatric condition, nor to any medications
  3. Distress due to lack of sexual thoughts or desire
  4. Strain on relationship with partner due to lack of sexual thoughts or desire

If you suffer from one or all of these symptoms, you are not alone. According to the HealthyWomen and Palatin Technologies survey, which included 906 premenopausal women, 46 percent experienced low sexual desire. Of these, about six in 10 were distressed about their dulled cravings for sex.
