Management of hypoactive sexual desire disorder.

Author information

  • 1Case School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio 44109, USA.


Epidemiological studies have found that problems with sexual desire are one of the most common sexual complaints in females. Such complaints are far less common in males. In women, problems with sexual desire have been found to be associated with age, relationship duration, relationship distress, and complaints of anxiety and depression. Evidence-based interventions include cognitive behavioral therapy and androgen therapy. Endocrinopathies are common causes of male problems with libido. There is minimal evidence available concerning the treatment of psychological etiologies of low sexual desire in men.
