Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD)

MSH (My Sexual Health) team members are healthcare professionals who specialise in helping patients with persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD), a condition characterised by spontaneous and persistent feelings of genital arousal that are unrelated to sexual desire or stimulation. They provide valuable support, assessment, and treatment options to individuals experiencing this challenging disorder.

Understanding Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD):

MSH team members have knowledge about PGAD and its impact on individuals' lives. They can explain that PGAD involves uncontrollable and persistent genital sensations, such as tingling, throbbing, or engorgement, which can cause significant distress and interfere with daily activities. They understand the physical and psychological aspects of PGAD and the complexities involved in its management.

Assessment and Evaluation:

MSH team members conduct a comprehensive assessment to understand the underlying factors contributing to PGAD. They consider both physical and psychological aspects, taking into account medical history, sexual history, current medications, and emotional well-being. They may perform diagnostic tests or screenings to identify underlying medical conditions or triggers.

Treatment Options:

MSH team members offer various treatment options for PGAD based on the individual's needs and underlying causes. They may recommend a multidisciplinary approach involving medications, physical therapy, counselling, or other interventions. They provide guidance on managing symptoms, exploring coping strategies, and improving overall well-being.

Psychological and Emotional Support:

PGAD can have a significant psychological impact, leading to feelings of frustration, embarrassment, or anxiety. MSH team members provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment for individuals to discuss their concerns openly. They offer counselling and guidance on addressing emotional distress, managing stress, and developing coping mechanisms.

Collaboration with Specialists:

MSH team members collaborate with other healthcare professionals, such as gynaecologists, urologists, neurologists, or mental health specialists, to ensure comprehensive care for patients with PGAD. They may facilitate referrals to specialists when necessary, ensuring that individuals receive specialised expertise and treatment options tailored to their specific needs.

Education and Resources:

MSH team members provide educational resources on PGAD, including information on potential causes, treatment options, and self-help strategies. They can recommend books, websites, or support groups that offer additional information and support for individuals with PGAD.

By seeking support from MSH team members, individuals with persistent genital arousal disorder can access expert guidance, evaluation, and treatment options tailored to their specific needs.
