Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (HSDD), commonly called “decreased libido”, affects approximately 10% of the female population across all age groups according to the International Society for Sexual Medicine.  With new national news organizations introducing the "little pink pill" I thought it would be a good time to review HSDD.

Even with traffic, it is likely around 10 contractions (if you are in active labor) on the drive from Wakemed North to Wakemed on New Bern Ave.  As I mentioned in my prior blog post, we very much want to take care of you during the pregnancy, the delivery, and the postpartum time frame.  Here are some reasons why we feel the 10 contraction drive is worth it:
