Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS) / Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD)
Treatment for Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS)
A thorough neurologic assessment and continuous psychological care and management are necessary. Doctors are also advised to ensure that the patients have a thorough assessment of their medication use.
Possible Treatment: The syndrome has not been fully described in sexuality, psychiatric or medical literature. It is yet to be explored in detail in terms of causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. In some rare situations the symptoms are reported to be minimally reduced by the use anti-androgenic agents and anesthetizing gels.
Coping and Support: PSAS is a recently discovered pattern of female sexual disorder and doctors and patients are still muddling over the incidence and treatment of the syndrome. It can be very embarrassing for the sufferer to disclose details of being persistently aroused and may tend to suffer alone. Recognizing this as a couple’s issue will make it easier to cope with PSAS. If the woman suffering from this sexual disorder communicates with her partner and overcomes her shame to seek support and proper treatment, it will certainly help her and also help throw more light on this problem and give new leads in understanding PSAS better.
In some developed countries as in the United States medical and psychological help is available at Centers for Sexual Medicine.
