What is nymphomania?

Nymphomania is a rare desire disorder. It is characterized by a strong need to have sexual intercourse. It is often associated with obsessive-compulsive or bipolar disorders. In men, it is called satyriasis and, in women, nymphomania; two names taken from mythology. The patient is eternally dissatisfied and dependent on sensations of pleasure.

What are the causes of nymphomania?

For this pathology, the psychoaffective cause is very often indicated. Nymphomania can have neurological causes and can be specifically an attack on the limbic system. It can also occur when taking certain medical treatments such as corticosteroids or L-Dopa for example. It can also be due to a malfunction of certain areas of the brain or a dysfunction of neurotransmitters.

What are the symptoms of a nymphomaniac?

Nymphomania is characterized by an exaggerated sexual desire. According to a 2011 Inserm study, between 3% and 6% of the population is affected by this pathology. The nymphomaniac also multiplies the one-night stands and numerous and imperious sexual relationships. The social and love life of the nymphomaniac can be particularly disturbed. She frequently resorts to masturbation without finding the desired satisfaction.

How to treat nymphomania?

The patient must have a doctor, psychiatrist or psychologist. Unless it is associated with a psychiatric illness or if it causes depression, no drug treatment is prescribed.  Cognitive and behavioral therapies and hypnosis are the most effective. Psychotherapy is the most common way to treat nymphomania.
