Many women have some initial anxieties about the use of contraceptives. Most of such anxieties are however based on inadequate information, or even from biased anecdotes. The safety of reversible contraceptives is not in question. Not only do they prevent unwanted pregnancies, but contraceptives are also linked to a multitude of other health benefits.
Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder (PGAD), originally called Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome (PSAS) and also known as Restless Genital Syndrome (ReGS or RGS), results in a spontaneous, persistent, and uncontrollable genital arousal in women, with or without orgasm or genital engorgement, unrelated to any feelings of sexual desire.

The inevitable hormonal changes in the menopause have consequential effects on the functioning of the genital system. Women and their partners will thus experience new changes in sexual function, which may sometimes interfere with sexual enjoyment and satisfaction.
