If low sexual desire and HSDD are so common, how come I don’t know anyone else who’s dealing with it?

    Chances are, you do know someone with HSDD. Millions of women have HSDD—about 1 in 10 women in the US. But a lot of women don’t know that HSDD is a treatable medical condition. Or they’re simply too embarrassed or ashamed to talk about it. But it doesn't have to be that way. That's part of the mission of unblush: to help women with HSDD reach out to one another. So they can start transforming their feelings of frustration about low sexual desire into the strength to confront it. Connect with women who are confronting HSDD.

    I’ve yet to be diagnosed, but pretty sure I have HSDD for the last 4 years. I don’t go around telling my friends and family about my sexual frustrations. The one person I did explain my feelings to told me it was just my perspective in the moment and it’s basically in my head. So I kinda shut down the whole “tell people about it” thing. I’ve never heard of anyone else feeling the way we do either

    Because no one talks about it. But we’re all here looking for answers so it’s definitely a real thing.

    Well, I have one bestie I would talk about this to. It’s one thing to talk about bras and shaving etc, but somethings just don’t come up. Just know you aren’t alone.
