People believed that sex is one of the vital force that keep their overall sexual life more interesting and joyful. As much as possible they see to it to have sex on a regular basis for an added spice in their married life.
Yes, you heard it right, married life. Marriage allows you to have someone to share all your strengths and weaknesses and still accept you for just the way you are.
But, marriage doesn’t guarantee a happy ever after life. The good fight would just be worth it.
Low sexual desire can be one of the most aggravating problems that single and married individuals experience. People who have low or lack sexual desire to have sex are often called undergoing Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).
Here I will provide you the common questions by men and women about HSDD.

HSDD is a condition in where it is impossible or you have low sexual desire to have sex with your partner.
In return, you and your partner experience tension that may further worsen the situation.
It doesn’t mean that you the inability to have sex, but not having desire to have sex can cause constant worry and anxiety then it falls to HSDD.
2. Who Are Most Affected With HSDD?
Roughly, about 12% of women and roughly estimated 5% of men suffers from HSDD. HSDD is prevalent among women, so most researchers respondents are women.
Women are most likely to experience HSDD because women are natural mothers?
Why? I believe women are designed to be vulnerable so they get easily affected with their environment and with the behaviour and attitude of their partners.
3. What Are The Common Symptoms Of Person Experiencing HSDD?
HSDD symptoms come in many faces but here are the most obvious ones:
- Disinterest in sex

Trauma can also be the reason of having low sexual interest. It is recommended to undergo counselling and even extensive couple therapy.
5. Is HSDD Considered A New Condition?
HSDD has been experienced by men and women the moment sex has been recognized. So, basically, when life forms in the earth, HSDD is already an issue.

Apart from biological needs it is also important to feed your spirit. I really believe that if you are motivated inside.
