It re more like the title of a film on YouPorn than the start of an article about a debilitating medical condition. More often than not, PGAD sufferers are treated as hypersexual oddities. But PGAD actually has very little to do with orgasms, and absolutely nothing to do with pleasure. The condition, largely suffered by women, is characterised by an implacable feeling of genital congestion and pelvic pain. Those who have it often feel permanently on the verge of an orgasm that they can't complete — a sort of chronic clitoral constipation. PGAD sufferers soon Beautiful older ladies wants orgasm Florida to avoid triggers.
Anything from a bumpy train ride, to inserting a tampon, to wearing stilettos which offset the balance of the pelvis can exacerbate the extreme genital sensitivity. Some have constant arousal, but no orgasms. Others have multiple orgasms, which only provide a very superficial and short-lived sort of relief.
That's the one thing that all PGAD sufferers share. Ramsey, who chose not to take medication that would make her drowsy, self-medicates with distraction. At first, she tried placing all of her focus on her job, and worked solidly for a month.
But both Ramsey and Kellie explain that this can greatly intensify symptoms. Kellie says that she avoids masturbation at all costs. She is undergoing cognitive behavioural therapy, and finds that activities such as mindfulness meditation and swimming Beautiful older ladies wants orgasm Florida to keep her calm. But the underlying symptoms are unavoidable. My husband and I used to have great sex.
We hardly have any at all now, because he doesn't want to add to my discomfort. I wish I didn't even have a vagina any more. Her doctor prescribed her Gabapentina drug that eases nerve pain and was originally developed to treat epilepsy. The medication helps her to cope with PGAD, but it doesn't relieve the symptoms entirely.
Jenny, a year-old British woman with PGAD, says that, initially, the condition left her feeling as if her brain had moved into her vagina. It was the scariest thing I've ever experienced. Rebecca, a year-old American who has lived with PGAD for around twelve years, says that she initially tried out a of methods to numb her vagina.
She used everything from ice-filled condoms to a strong anaesthetic ointment that put her in hospital with genital blistering. Now, she has found a great deal of relief through the use of a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation Tens machine. This device, commonly used to treat back pain, sends small pulses Beautiful older ladies wants orgasm Florida electricity into the base of the spinal column. Jenny and Rebecca's PGAD started when they reached menopause, but the direct causes of the condition are unknown. According to a recent report by Dr David Goldmeiera specialist in sexual medicine at St Mary's Hospital in London, PGAD is related to a of conditions, from compression of the pudendal nerve the one that carries sensation around the genitalia to pre-existing mental health problems; namely anxiety and depression.
Kellie noticed symptoms as soon as she began a course of antidepressants. She came off the medication immediately, then found herself suffering from restless leg syndrome and an overactive bladder. Both of these conditions are related to PGAD.
Rebecca has now lived with PGAD for around 12 years. A standard medication for PGAD doesn't exist. The condition is treated with everything from anti-neuralgic medicine usually prescribed for Parkinson's disease, to, in some cases, Botox injections. The symptoms can be calmed, but not cured, and the permanent frustration can have severe effects on mental health. Gretchen Molannen from Florida, who was a member of the same online support group as Ramsey, was 39 when she took her life.
She had lived with PGAD for 16 years. Ramsey, who never actually met Molannen but had ed with her, and other group members contributed to the cost of her funeral. Ramsey says that the two deaths had a profound effect on her and many of her fellow PGAD sufferers. They realised just how destructive the illness can be when the right help isn't available.
With such little research into the condition and the media so often treating women with PGAD as freaks of nature, this is regularly the case. Ramsey, who shared her story with the Sun in the hope of raising awareness of the condition, was understandably furious when she saw the lurid headline. What's more, the article had been cut down to a few sentences, focusing almost entirely on her persistent orgasms, and far removed from the context of PGAD as an illness. She raised the issue with the Press Complaints Commission, and her complaint was upheld. Having emigrated to the US, she became a regular fixture in the American media when it came to stories about the illness.
At one point, she had reporters showing up at her door and her name was quoted by journalists who hadn't even bothered to talk to her. All of the women I spoke to about their experiences with PGAD were concerned, first and foremost, that I would treat their stories with sensitivity.
According to Goldmeier, the condition is likely to be rare. In a survey of women he carried out in a sexual health clinic, only one had PGAD. But, because of the stigma attached to the illness, it's hard to know how many women are living with it and are too afraid or ashamed to seek medical attention.
When Ramsey began to appear in the media in stories about PGAD, many acquaintances stopped speaking to her. I got shunned all over the place. I know what it's like to be a leper. Ramsey feels that the sexual health industry focuses on other problems, such as erectile dysfunction and inability to reach orgasm, while PGAD is largely ignored.
Women with the condition are often forced to be their own advocates, and she wants to help them. In the meantime? Ramsey quotes Winston Churchill: "If you're going through hell, keep going. Women with persistent genital arousal disorder: 'People hear orgasm and they think it's a good thing'.
Sufferers of PGAD can feel constantly on the brink of an orgasm. One thing they all share is pain, and distress at the way their condition is covered in the media.
