Persistent genital arousal disorder – also called PGAD – might sound like an unusual condition, but it does happen. And it’s distressing to those who are affected. Another name for this condition is Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS).
Women with this condition have an unwelcome feeling of genital sexual arousal without desire and without genital stimulation. The condition improves only briefly with orgasm and is unwanted and intrusive on lifestyle.
