Invitation to women with low desire and sexual dysfunction

by Margery Gass | Sep 23, 2014

The time has come. This is your opportunity to discuss your concerns and to share your thoughts on the need for treatment with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There have been many products brought to market over the last 15 years for male sexual dysfunction, but we still have nothing for women.

The most common female sexual dysfunction is female sexual interest/arousal disorder, often referred to as “low desire” or “low libido.” The FDA wants to hear from women who have this condition. How does it affect your life? What is the most distressing aspect of it? Has anything helped?

On October 27, 2014, the FDA is holding a Patient-Focused Drug Development public meeting on Female Sexual Dysfunction in Silver Springs, Maryland. You can apply to appear in person or submit your comments online. Webcast participants will also have an opportunity to provide input through webcast comments. A panel of patients and patient advocates will present comments to start the dialogue, followed by a facilitated discussion with all patients and patient representatives in the audience. I will be there in person in the audience to hear your comments, and I will also be participating on the scientific panel the following day.

All parts of the event are free but you must register online and by October 20, 2014. For event details and to learn more visit Eventbrite: Patient-Focused Drug Development Public Meeting and Scientific Workshop on Female Sexual Dysfunction event page.

For more information, refer to the FDA meeting website.

    I am 54 years old and have absolutely NO desire for sex.  I am married to my husband for 30+ years and have had a decent sexual history.

    He is having a very hard time wrapping his head around the "no desire" and has now put our marriage into jeopardy.

    I have tried numerous hormonal replacements but none have worked for me.

    I am looking to reach out to other woman who have had the same situation and ask how they have dealt with it.

    Thank you.

    My husband and I have been married for 36 years.  We had a fantastic sex life until I reached menopause.  Now I have no interest and cannot get aroused enough to have intercourse.  It's so frustrating I hate losing my sex life it's such a part of our closeness.   Please find a cure to our problem, why is it all about the men.  It's no good your husband getting an erection if your desire if nil!!!!!  Fed up with that.
