Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD)

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) also known as Inhibited sexual desire (ISD) is a medical condition with only one symptom: low sexual desire. A person with HSDD seldom, if ever, engages in sexual activities. They don’t initiate or respond to a partner’s sexual overtures. 

A lack of interest in sex, low libido, or low sex drive; to name a few commonly used terms for this issue, may not necessarily be HSDD.  For the lack of desire to be a disorder, it has to cause distress or interpersonal difficulty for the person concerned.

Problems concerning low sexual desire, in men and women, are among the most challenging sexual problems for clinicians to diagnose, assess and treat. They are often associated with other sexual problems, psychological disorders and medical conditions.

There’s no true normal range for sexual desire because it naturally fluctuates throughout life.

People seek help for desire disorders when it puts stress on their relationships. However, the problem isn’t always a case of HSDD. One partner may have an overactive sexual desire. This creates a ‘sexual mismatch,’ which also puts undue strain on a relationship.
