Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder refers to a disorder of apparent lack of interest or Desire in sexual activity or Fantasy that would not be expected considering the person’s age and life situation.

The lack of sexual interest and desire, especially with women has a lot to do with the relationship she has. If this relationship is not satisfactory she may encounter several sexual dysfunctions. Other reaons are: family concerns, illness or death, financial or job worries, child-care responsibilities, managing a career and children, previous or current physical and emotional abuse, fatigue and depression.

For women, some sexual dysfunctions are more psychological than physical. However researchers have found that Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder is usually associated with a hormonal imbalance in the female body, which can often be reversed through medical or herbal intervention. Physical causes may arise due to hypertension, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, thyroid disorders, neurological diseases and autoimmune disorders like lupus. Other factors include prescriptions drugs, particularly anti-hypertensive and depression medication, as well as over-the-counter medications and illegal drugs and alcohol abuse.

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder is also called HSDD.
