The main cause of persistent sexual arousal disorder is not known. It is said that the condition can occur because of the irritation to the pudendal nerve. The nerve is said to provide the sensations to the genital area.
If you have any mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, etc., you may experience the symptoms of PGAD. However, it is still not clear why these conditions trigger the symptoms of PGAD.
You are at a higher risk of getting persistent sexual arousal disorder if you have gynecological disorders and pudendal neuralgia. If you are someone who has recently discontinued taking anti-depressant medications, you may experience the symptoms of persistent sexual arousal syndrome.
If you experience any symptoms of persistent sexual arousal disorder, consult your doctor.
Inform your doctor about the symptoms you experience and the frequency of the symptoms. Your doctor may do a physical examination of your genital area. In some cases, if the doctor suspects a nerve injury, he/she may recommend doing neurological testing.
Your doctor may even ask you about the medical conditions you have and the medications and drugs you intake. This will help the doctor to understand if the symptoms of PGAD are triggered by any other medical conditions, medications, or supplements.
