The goal of the HSDD initiative is to be the premier online central-source for education about screening, diagnosis, treatment and long-term management of HSDD.

Educational Objectives

  1. Define and differentiate between FSD and HSDD through careful use of screening questionnaires, assessment, and physical examination, to ensure proper diagnosis and successful non-medical and medical treatment outcomes
  2. Recognize the level of distress HSDD and sexual dysfunction have on each patient’s overall health and well-being
  3. Encourage each woman to engage in discussions of sexual health with her doctor, to determine “normal” sexual function and dysfunction for her
  4. Select appropriate treatment based on patient’s treatment goals and the degree to which the patient wants sexual function restored
  5. Evaluate and proactively manage AEs of HSDD medications and modalities to allay patient concerns about side effects and ensure therapeutic persistence
