Bridge for Pelvic Pain was honored to be invited to share educational materials at last month's ISSWSH (International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health) Conference located in Charleston, SC. We are proud to announce that a group of global PGAD (Persistant Genital Arousal Disorder) warriors will be joining Bridge for Pelvic Pain in an advisory capacity to help spread awareness and education about PGAD. (Their eye-catching educational poster won an award at the conference and we can see why-congrats!)
PGAD warrior and conference attendee Linda Cataldo shared highlights of the ISSWSH Conference:
"The conference was an incredible experience and we were all excited for the opportunity to share with this community about PGAD. The first highlight came from meeting Dr. M. Waldinger from the Netherlands, the "grandfather of PGAD" who discovered that the TENS Unit can be used to treat some PGAD patients.
Our team later discovered that the head of the Kinsey Institute, Dr. Carter, was unaware of PGAD when I asked her a question at an open mike session after her talk about Oxytocin/sex/ and the brain. Much talk ensued, and now I think that we may see some activity as far as research from their end."
