The Decreased Sexual Desire Screener is a brief diagnostic instrument for generalized acquired Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder in women. During the screening visit of 2 clinical trials, the authors assessed sensitivity of the Decreased Sexual Desire Screener in premenopausal women presenting with decreased sexual desire. The authors compared diagnoses of generalized acquired Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder made by clinicians who were not trained or specialized in the diagnosis of female sexual dysfunction using the Decreased Sexual Desire Screener with diagnoses made by expert clinicians after an extensive diagnostic interview. The sensitivity of the Decreased Sexual Desire Screener was 0.946 in a North American trial and 0.960 in a European trial.
