The condition is called HSDD and odds are you’ve never heard of it. HSDD or hypoactive sexual desire disorder is a condition where desire is low where it used to be high and it causes a lot of distress for women.
Because there’s a lack of awareness many women suffer in silence and may be too embarrassed to talk to their doctor about it, but there is help. Dr.Alyssa Dweck is thrilled to be working with amag pharmaceuticals to really discuss the first and only as needed FDA-approved HSDD treatment. Vyleesi™ (bremelanotide injection). Vyleesi is a melanocortin receptor agonist that works in the brain and is indicated for the treatment of acquired generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder. This particular treatment does not have to be taken every day, women can use it when they need, it like all medications there are side effects so talk to your doctor to see if it’s a good fit.
