Rare Sexual Syndrome In Women Calls For More Research

Most women who present to the sex clinic only report of failing to get aroused. But researchers highlight that some women, may present with just the opposite complaints//. Contrary to women who fail to get aroused, women suffering from the so-called persistent sexual arousal syndrome (PSAS) experience constant, but unprovoked feelings of excitement.

Currently, very little is understood about this rare syndrome that affects women. Researchers have therefore called for more research into this peculiar problem. 'Persistent sexual arousal syndrome occurs when a woman becomes involuntarily aroused for extended periods of time in the absence of sexual desire,' remarked Dr. David Goldmeier, St Mary's Hospital, London.

It is a common misconception that it would pave way for a pleasant sensation in women. The truth is however that the condition can lead to embarrassment and extremely distressing for someone who suffers from the condition. It can even lead to suicidal tendencies in some women, according to a report presented in the International Journal of STD & AIDS, by Dr. Goldmeier.

The presence of such a syndrome was first identified in 2001. The exact cause of the disease is unknown. However women report such symptoms after they stop taking anti-depressants, more specifically drugs known as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Since the diagnosis, very few cases have been reported so far, preventing researchers from arriving at a specific conclusion about the prevalence or treatment.

'It deserves continued research, not only because it is a distressing and perplexing condition, but also because ... treatment may lead to greater understanding of other aspects of female sexual response,' concluded Dr. Goldmeier and Dr Sandra Leiblum.
