What age were you when you first noticed low sexual desire?

Jessica Answered
“For me it was just over a year and a half ago, at 31. It was really surprising for me, and I didn’t feel like myself at all. I’ve always had a really really active libido and really fulfilling sex life... I feel like HSDD took an important part of my identity away.”

Why don’t more women who have low sexual desire just ask their healthcare provider about it?

Jessica Answered
“It can be a frustrating thing to confront. My doctor’s thought it was an aversion to sex from past trauma... but I never had fear responses or any stressful feelings when my partner would try to initiate. Just unable to get turned on, unable to really engage. (Fortunately my partner is an understanding and patient soul and has gone over a year with out sex with out complaint.... we cuddle and kiss and show intimacy other ways). They thought it was a side effect of a medicine... but being off the medicine for over a year showed no changes. I told them I read about a medicine for it. At first they said they didn’t prescribe it (I go to the VA) but I argued that they prescribe ED and libido drugs to geriatric men, and it wasn’t fair to me, a woman in her early 30s, to be the way I am with out treatment, since it takes a lot of enjoyment out of my life. They are still going through the red tape, but my doctor said she can prescribe a medicine to me soon, maybe with in the next month. Here’s hoping it works!”
