ISSWSH PGAD/GPD Consensus Published

ISSWSH is thrilled to announce 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. This is 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. Visit our Publications page for a link to read the full paper through open access.
