Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD): Treatment and causes

Persistent genital arousal disorder PGAD is characterized by unrelenting, spontaneous, and uncontainable genital arousal, mostly in females. A woman with PGAD can experience spontaneous orgasms that do not resolve arousal. PGAD can lead to ongoing physical pain, stress , and psychological difficulties due to an inability to carry out everyday tasks. The condition can affect women of all ages. Experts have not clinically confirmed the incidence of PGAD, as many people with the condition feel too embarrassed or ashamed to seek medical help. The primary symptom of PGAD is a series of ongoing and uncomfortable sensations in and around the genital tissues, including the clitoris, labia, vagina, perineum, and anus.

Persistent genital arousal disorder PGAD is a health concern that has not yet received much research attention or recognition in the healthcare system. Individuals who experience PGAD report genital arousal symptoms including sensitivity in their genitals, feelings of genital arousal—like tingling, throbbing, feeling on the verge of orgasm, swelling, lubrication without corresponding feelings of sexual desire. These arousal symptoms also last for a prolonged period of time: for hours, days, or are always present.
