PersistentGenitalArousalDisorder, also known as PGAD or Restless Genital Syndrome or Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome, is a condition characterized by unrelenting, spontaneous and uncontainable genital arousal in females. PGAD may or may not include arousal with orgasm and/or genital engorgement. Very often patients have approached medical health professionals who have not heard of PGAD and often times their symptoms are dismissed. PGAD is a real disease and must be treated by professionals who have significant experience with PGAD.
Symptoms of Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD)
Physiologic sexual arousal (genital fullness or swelling and sensitivity with or without nipple fullness or swelling) that persist for hours or days and do not subside completely on their own
Arousal are usually experienced as unrelated to any subjective sense of sexual excitement or desire
The persistent genital arousal can be triggered not only by a sexual activity but also by non-sexual stimuli or by no apparent stimulus at all;
Arousal symptoms feel unbidden, intrusive, uninvited and unwanted, and the symptoms cause a moderate degree of distress.
