Hypoactive sexual desire disorder may affect 32% of women between 18 and 59 years of age. The percentage of affected women increases with age. However, the distress associated with loss of sexual desire is inversely associated with age. Biological, psychosexual and context dependent factors may modulate its neurobiological basis and clinical correlates.
The neurobiology of sexual desire and of leading causes contributing to women’s sexual desire disorders will be reviewed.
A first line informative history taking to qualify the diagnosis will be presented. The basic diagnostic work-up and treatment guidelines will be finally considered.
