Support Groups for Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome
Support Groups backed by doctors, present cases of women who are distressed with the symptoms of PSAS, share stories and seek ways to manage the strange discomfort without sinking into depression.
Concerned doctors who handle these cases discuss case histories in different medical forums hoping to evince interest and stimulate efforts to explore the prevalence, etiology, course, and management of Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome or Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome.
It is not surprising that the women who have reported the condition are only from the advanced countries, because the consequences of reporting such a syndrome by women in developing or under-developed countries or conservative societies in developed countries would be disastrous. In conservative societies, women reporting this disease run the risk of being stigmatized or labeled as freaks by others.
