CONDIVIDI SU

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder is defined as absent or diminished feelings of sexual interest or desire, absent sexual thoughts or fantasies and a lack of responsive desire. Motivations for attempting to become sexually aroused are scarce or absent. The lack of interest is considered to be more than that due to a normative lessening with the life cycle and length of a relationship. The complaint of low desire becomes a clinically relevant sexual disorder when it causes severe personal distress to the woman.
