Challenging Cases: Navigating the New Consensus Guideline on Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder/Genito-Pelvic Dysesthesia

April 22, 2021 at 5:30 pm Pacific / 8:30 pm Eastern

In March 2021, ISSWSH announced the publication of our latest manuscript on the management of Persistent Genital Arousal/Genito-Pelvic Dysesthesia. PGAD is a terrible condition of unwanted, unremitting sensations of genital arousal that is associated with a significant, negative psychosocial impact, which may include emotional lability, catastrophization, and suicidal ideation. Despite being first reported in 2001, PGAD remains poorly understood.

Join us for an exciting presentation and discussion on the first consensus paper focusing exclusively on the epidemiology, pathophysiology, and nomenclature of PGAD that also gives a detailed algorithm on how to approach diagnosis and treatment.
