Who should a woman see about low libido?

Eva B. Cwynar, MD
Internal Medicine
If you are a woman dealing with loss of libido, I generally recommend that you see an endocrinologist rather than depend on your general practitioner or gynecologist. A general practitioner or primary care physician doesn't usually offer the necessary in-depth laboratory testing, nor will he or she know how to properly interpret the results. Even gynecologists, who may be better informed about hormones, don't usually have the same level of knowledge about them as an endocrinologist.
