    The talk sex with JKDChick Thread

      Constant arousal rare but vexing
      Some women find it tough to talk about

      Carey Goldberg, Boston Globe Wednesday, November 12, 2003


      When Jean Lund, a 51-year-old office manager and mother of three, told her gynecologist the problem, he snickered and said, "You're every man's dream."

      "I wanted to punch him," she recalled. "I'm suffering here, and he's laughing, 'Hardy-har-har.' So I looked him in the face and said, 'How would you like to walk around on the verge of orgasm every second?' And he shut up."

      Lund has a rare condition that prominent sexual medicine researchers have just "discovered" and begun to document. They have given it a name -- persistent sexual arousal syndrome -- and are trying to develop treatments for it, so far with patchy success.

      The syndrome is the opposite of the usual female sexual complaint -- difficulty getting aroused. Instead, patients sustain unrelenting physical arousal, no matter how many orgasms they have. They are not nymphomaniacs; they do not experience desire. Rather, they feel the vaginal congestion and pulsation of arousal, and it is not about pleasure -- far from it.

      "It's just a horror," said Lila, a 71-year-old woman who has had the syndrome since brain and bladder surgery in 1999, and said she often has 200 small orgasms a day. "It bothers me more than the breast cancer," an advanced case that was diagnosed two years ago.

      "This never stops, it never lets up," she said, and it ruins everything, including car travel, dinner parties and simply sitting on the couch. "It colors your whole life."

      Report published 2 years ago

      The syndrome appears to be quite uncommon. The sexuality specialist who published the first journal paper on it two years ago said that she had received thus far only 30 or 40 e-mails from patients around the country and world.

      "I don't think it's very prevalent at all, but I think it's real," said the specialist, Dr. Sandra Leiblum, director of the Center for Sexual and Relationship Health at the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Jersey and author of "Getting the Sex You Want."

      At Boston University's Institute of Sexual Medicine, about 2,500 women have been seen in the last five years, and only about 10 had the persistent arousal syndrome, said Dr. Irwin Goldstein, the institute's director.

      It appears, he said, to stem from "a grab bag of conditions." Certain medications can bring it on, like Trazodone, an antidepressant known to cause the male equivalent, priapism. Seizures also seem to be likely triggers, as do abnormal connections of arteries to veins.

      Theories on treatment

      Goldstein has tried various treatments, from taking a patient off Trazodone to prescribing Depakote, a drug normally used to tamp down the manic episodes of bipolar disorder. He also has tried local applications of ice and anesthetics, hoping the numbness would free the patient from the constant distraction of arousal for a little while. One woman whose arousal stemmed from an overactive blood supply to her clitoris underwent multiple procedures to choke off the abnormal blood supply, he said.

      In general, however, the arousal tends to be hard to conquer, and some of the specialists' attention has focused simply on helping the women cope and letting them know they are not alone. Both Goldstein and Leiblum have formed support groups and have Web sites on the syndrome.

      Sex -- alone or with a partner -- helps little, said Julie Johnson, a sex therapist who works with patients at Boston University. It becomes just "a drudgery," to try to get rid of the arousal for a spell: "There's no joy or fulfillment in it."

      Some women have been so tormented by the arousal they have become suicidal. And, for many, there is also an element of mortification.

      "For a woman even to acknowledge it to a physician is often so embarrassing," Leiblum said. "And for some Christian women, there's a sense of shame that if you're feeling this way, you must be bad, or having impure thoughts."


        Well that article just deflated my ego....
