Female sexual interest/arousal disorder (FSIAD) is a newly defined clinical diagnosis that appears in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5).1 The diagnosis was previously listed as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in DSM-4 and as inhibited sexual desire disorder in DSM-3. References to the condition prior to 2013 (and even afterward), including research studies, often refer to the condition as HSDD.
