In this episode of the Pelvic Messenger, our guest, Dr. Robert Echenberg spends almost 90 minutes discussing PGAD; helping listeners to understand more about this sensationalized disorder known at PGAD. Dr. Echenberg discusses at length why PGAD is a chronic pelvic pain disorder and why it is NOT a sexual disorder.
PGAD is characterized by unwelcome and intrusive genital arousal episodes that is unrelated to desire.
Dr. Echenberg has seen numerous patients with this condition, included among the more than 1200 patients he has seen with a variety of chronic pelvic and genital pain disorders such as Interstitial Cystitis, Vulvodynia, Pudendal Neuralgia, and Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
In the latter half of the show, we discuss his three pronged approach to treating PGAD condition.
