Let’s talk about it.
"It" being Vyleesi, which is for premenopausal women with acquired, generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD).
Healthcare professionals may not start the conversation about intimacy with patients. That’s why it’s up to you to speak up about your frustration with ongoing low sexual desire, which is a key symptom of HSDD. Get started with this checklist.
Bring up "hypoactive sexual desire disorder" by name
Call it by its name. If ongoing low sexual desire is causing frustration, clearly communicate other symptoms, which may include:
• An impact on personal relationships and intimacy
• A lack of confidence that affects self-esteem and/or body image
Understand the diagnosis process
To determine if you have HSDD, your healthcare professional may ask you standard questions from the Decreased Sexual Desire Screener (DSDS).
Ask about Vyleesi
Vyleesi is the first and only as-needed* treatment for premenopausal women with acquired, generalized hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) that:
✓ Increases desire and reduces distress
✓ Starts working in 45 minutes
✓ Has no alcohol restriction
*Administer subcutaneously as needed at least 45 minutes before anticipated sexual activity. The duration of its effect after each dose is unknown. Do not administer more than one dose within 24 hours or more than 8 doses per month.
Try these out with your healthcare professional.
