Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder

MSH Team Members include healthcare professionals with a special interest in helping patients with Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD). They provide valuable support, assessment, and treatment options to individuals who may be experiencing a decrease or absence of sexual desire.

Understanding Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder:

MSH Team Members have a comprehensive understanding of HSDD, which is characterised by a persistent or recurrent lack of interest or desire for sexual activity. They recognise that HSDD can significantly impact an individual's quality of life, relationships, and overall well-being.

Assessment and Evaluation:

MSH Team Members conduct a thorough assessment to evaluate the underlying factors contributing to HSDD. They create a safe and non-judgmental environment for patients to discuss their concerns openly. The assessment considers physical, psychological, and relational factors to comprehensively understand the individual's sexual health.

Individualised Treatment Plans:

Based on the assessment results, MSH Team Members develop individualised treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs. Treatment options may include psychotherapy, couples counselling, medication, or a combination of approaches. They work collaboratively with patients to determine the most appropriate treatment strategies.

Psychotherapy and Counseling:

MSH Team Members may offer psychotherapy or counselling as a primary treatment approach for HSDD. This may involve individual therapy to address any underlying psychological or emotional factors contributing to the disorder. They provide guidance and support in exploring personal beliefs, attitudes, and experiences related to sexuality.

Couples Counseling:

For individuals in relationships, MSH Team Members may recommend couples counselling to address HSDD. This form of therapy involves working with both partners to improve communication, intimacy, and understanding. It focuses on enhancing the overall sexual and emotional connection within the relationship.

Medication Options:

In some cases, MSH Team Members may prescribe medications to help manage HSDD symptoms. These medications may include hormonal therapies or medications that target neurotransmitters in the brain associated with sexual desire. They carefully evaluate and discuss the potential benefits and risks of medication options with the patient.

Education and Support:

MSH Team Members provide education and support to help patients better understand HSDD and the available treatment options. They offer resources, information, and techniques that can support sexual health and overall well-being. They address any concerns or questions, providing guidance on managing HSDD and optimising sexual satisfaction.
