In brief: Enter study

This is a common problem. There is no FDA approved treatment, but one medication is undergoing the final trials for approval and has shown some beneficial effects in earlier trials (Bremelanotide).
Consider participating in this trial: https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT02333071?term=Bremelanotide&rank=2 For other suggestions see my checklist "Improving sexual desire".
