Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is the most prevalent sexual disorder for women of all ages, but it is also one of the most difficult to address. Clinicians need to understand the implications and address the concerns of their patients. Host Dr. Prathima Setty discusses this topic with Sheryl A. Kingsberg, PhD, Chief, Division of Behavioral Medicine, Department of Obstetrics/Gynecology, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, and Professor, Departments of Reproductive Biology and Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH.
