#Hypo sexual disorder

Friends today I am discussing about a serious problem which most of the people shy to share with their doctor which is Hypoactive Sexual desire disorder. What Is Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder? If you have little interest in sex, and it's causing distress in your life, you may have hypoactive sexual desire disorder. Learn about treatment options for this sex disorde Just because you aren’t interested in sex doesn’t mean you are sexually dysfunctional. However, if your disinterest is causing distress in your life, then you may be diagnosed with hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). An estimated 30 to 39 percent of women in any given population will report little or no interest in sex at any given time in their lives. This may not cause personal problems or constitute a sex disorder, especially if the woman is single and not actively engaged with a partner. When a lingering lack of desire, however, is coupled with distress, which is believed to be the case in about 12 percent of women and a roughly estimated 5 percent of men — and if other issues, such as an abusive partner are ruled out — then HSDD may be diagnosed. Although “lack of sexual fantasy” used to be included in the official HSDD definitions, this is no longer universally used as a determinant of healthy sexuality; not all sexually healthy adults fantasize. “Some people don’t want to have sex. If it’s not causing distress, it’s not dysfunction,” “The most important clinical determinant for HSDD in women is when the woman is unreceptive. She has a good relationship. She likes her partner. But she’s not able to respond to overtures. She says, ‘I feel nothing. I feel numb. I feel empty.’” Because of the personal nature of sexual desire, HSDD can be difficult to track, quantify, and treat. Studies do consistently show that HSDD can affect both women and men. Prevalence within the male population is less studied, but some researchers believe women may be at least twice as likely to have HSDD, which is why much of the research is pointed at women. Why Do More Women Have Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder? Some researchers believe the greater number of female HSDD cases may be related to the way most women approach sexuality: hypoactive sexual desire disorder can be psychologically, as well as physically, based. A woman’s desire for sex is often predicted by a greater number of factors in both realms working together — including relationship satisfaction and health, personal and partner well-being, and physical and emotional responses to lovemaking. The same researchers speculate that sexual disinterest among some women may be related to sexual inhibition, conditioned in women by longstanding cultural tradition. In addition, they suggest that a lack of sexual desire in some women may not constitute a disorder at all, but rather may be a natural protective mechanism against having too many children, which has evolved over time. Hormones. Hormone and other changes during menopause can make HSDD more prevalent for middle-aged, post-menopausal women than for younger, pre-menopausal women. Men can also experience hormonal changes, specifically low testosterone levels that can interfere with sexual desire Being in an active relationship. Most people living with HSDD who seek help are in a relationship. Sometimes a man or woman will seek help at the request of his or her partner. Nine out of 10 women who seek help do so because their partner is in distress. Emotional or mental health issues. This can include partner dissatisfaction, sexual communication and sexual performance issues, general life stress, and such potentially complicated psychological problems as body image issues and depression. Physical health conditions. These can include diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, hypothyroidism, and menopause. Treatment Options for Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder Sometimes just having a frank conversation with your partner can solve your HSDD. You also may choose to talk with your doctor, who may ask you about your relationship history and about past psychological issues related to your sexuality. Your doctor may also look for underlying medical conditions. You may ultimately be helped by: Individual or couples sex therapy. Treatment of an underlying medical condition. Hormone therapy. Hormone balancing therapy for women and testosterone supplementation for some men with low testosterone levels can increase sexual desire.
