I have a proposition. I think we should rename HSDD and agree that it doesn't exist. Instead I think there should a condition called Adult Onset Diminished Libido (AODL). Here is my rational.
If someone truly once had a moderate or high libido, even a low libido and then went to a flat line, this person should be considered AODL. Not unlike diabetes in which a persons body produces insulin up until a certain point and then stops. For what ever the reason a person whose body's chemistry produced and interest in sex and then stopped should be looked at very similarly and hence AODL.
Now if you have never had a libido or interest in sex, you wouldn't fall under this condition.
Would this new term satisfy the HSDD critics? Would the HSDD critics then stop bashing the Pharmas for trying to produce a product for those who want to recapture their libido?
