Sex Drive in Overdrive?

I have always had what I would consider a normal sex drive, but lately it seems like it's in overdrive. I've off course always been more ahem interested during certain days of the month like any woman. Though, for the past week or so there are days when it is especially intense. It has been at the point where I've taken aspirin to try to return to normal. Attn: TMI ahead - sex or self-stimulation will not settle it down at all. My cycle has always been pretty irregular, so I don't know if it's a PMS time now. My period used to come around this time, but has been coming later the past couple of months. This intensity has been happening right before my period so it was understandable, but this month, it will come every two days or so and last a day or two. I don't know if it's normal or not - I haven't been having sex as much as usual, but sex doesn't seem to help it any. I am 23 years old, so maybe it's my biological clock ticking? I don't really want children - I had a baby craving period around age 19, but haven't really thought about it since then. If it's this bad now, I wonder how it will be when I'm 35?? I just want to know why it's happening, and how I can get it to go away. It takes my mind off of work - it's hard to explain, but it's like having having an overactive bladder. Having to go to the bathroom all the time and not being able to. My orgasms are really intense, mind-blowing, but after a few minutes, I'm horny again. I can masterbate three or four times in a row, and it still won't calm down! I know, it's embarrassing, but it is getting to be a real problem. It reminds me of when I had insomnia for a while, my sex drive sunk - when I started sleeping again, my sex drive returned full throttle. But, this is even worse than that! Is there anything I can do? Has anyone ever experienced this?

Re: Sex Drive in Overdrive?

Yes, I experienced it a year and a half ago. It just happened suddenly one day when I had sex with husband and the feelings were more intense than usual. For the next 6 months all I could think about was sex. I would have mind blowing orgasms from my husband or by masturbation and shortly after I would be all horny again. I would get in bed at night and couldn't sleep,wishing my husband would wake up and give it to me.Sometimes I would wake him up at 5 in the morning so I could have him. I couldn't concentrate on the work I was supposed to be doing for any length of time. (I'm self employed so I had no boss to yell at me, but I lost alot of income.) It all felt so good yet frustrating at the same time. After 6 months it started calming down a little where I could focus on things I needed to do,and after an orgasm I wasn't always immediately horny again. I still have a high sex drive now,and after really good sex I sometimes get all turned on again, but it is more normal now. But while it was going on it was like going crazy. I would just get a thought and I'd feel extreme arousal. If I had a penis it would have been erect constantly. I remember wondering if this is what teen age boys feel like.

Sounds like Persistent Sexual Arousal Syndrome. Sandra Leiblum has been studying this; it's a relatively newly discovered issue, but it seems to be pretty common. As far as I know, there's still no known cause or "cure", but there's new information all the time :-)
