Types of HSDD

The 3 Main types of Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder

Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD) is a complex affliction which can have many causes - in many women the cause will never be determined. Often the causes of HSDD will depend on the type of HSDD. Typically men are only classified as one of three subtypes, while women can sometimes relate to one or more of the different types of HSDD. stressed woman

The 3 Subtypes of HSDD

  • Lifelong/Generalized
  • Acquired/Situational
  • Acquired/Generalized

red arrow Lifelong or Generalized HSDD - The patient has little or no desire for sexual stimulation (either with a partner or alone) and never has.

red arrow Acquired/Situational HSDD - The patient was previously sexually interested in present partner, but now lacks sexual interest in them - but still has desire for sexual stimulation (ie. alone or with someone other than present partner).

red arrow Acquired/Generalized HSDD - The patient previously had sexual interest in present partner, but now lacks interest in sexual activity - either partnered or solitary.

Many women will see their own situation in one or more of the HSDD types listed above. However, many women will also have a situation which might be slightly different, but still be a form of HSDD. Low female sex drive and HSDD have many similarities, and the symptoms of HSDD can be quite different from woman to woman.

Generally speaking, HSDD treatments will vary widely depending on the type and severity of HSDD. Some women will experience a much more dramatic decline in their sex drive than others, and some will experience a more subtle and slower drop in their sexual appetite and desire. HSDD can be addressed through a variety of treatments including HSDD supplements, counseling, diet, exercise, and therapy.

Types of HSDD and treatment options - What works best for women.

Which HSDD treatment is right for you will mostly depend on why you have low sex drive, and the length of time that this condition has been a problem. For women who have suffered sexual abuse, experienced pain during intercourse, or had an upbringing where sex was considered taboo, often therapy or counseling will be the recommended first step.

For most other women, hormonal or other body imbalances are often at the root of the HSDD problem. These women are the ones who are usually extremely successful using natural HSDD supplements to restore correct hormone levels and gradually increase sexual desire and libido.

You may also want to consult your physician to inquire about possible HSDD treatments, although we are not aware of any prescription drugs currently being prescribed to help with HSDD. Many women are hesitant to try prescription drugs to help cure their HSDD - especially when pharmaceutical drugs - like anti-depressants or birth control pills - are often one of the causes of HSDD.

In any case, there are many options available for women with Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder,  which will work to help stop HSDD and restore your sexual desire. We encourage you to learn as much as you can about all these potential solutions to restoring your libido, improving sexual vitality, and feeling sexual pleasure once again.
