How does Intrinsa help with the loss of sexual desire in women?

Testosterone levels in the body decrease due to age as well as various medical conditions. Levels can drop by up to 50% after the removal of the ovaries. This reduction in testosterone levels causes a decrease in sexual desire and libido and reduced sexual feelings as well as sexual arousal. In medical terms, this condition is known as Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder – commonly termed as HSDD. Intrinsa helps by increasing the level of testosterone in the blood, thereby treating HSDD. When a woman buys Intrinsa, she gets more than just improved libido. Her increased sexual desire and sexual arousal can provide not only physical benefits but also help her emotionally; she can overcome unhappiness and relationship difficulties in a much better way.
