What is Low Libido?

Low libido is also known as generalized, acquired hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD). It involves low sexual desire that is not due to another physical or mental cause, problems in a relationship, or side effects of a medication.

Treatment may involve ruling out an underlying cause, counseling or therapy, or the medication Addyi (flibanserin).
