Persistent Genital Arousal in Women With Pelvic and Genital Pain

      In their article published in the April issue of the Journal, Leah Pink and colleagues stated: persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) has been identified as an unprovoked genital arousal condition associated with a significant level of distress. PGAD is often characterized by unwelcome and intrusive episodes of genital arousal without corresponding desire or stimulation. ... In patients with PGAD who also have [restless legs syndrome] and/or overactive bladder, they classify the condition as restless genital syndrome.
