Nymphomania - Causes
Imagine a woman that thinks about sex night and day. She has trouble
controlling her sexual urges and is "hypersexual" by almost any standards.
She often struggles with nearly constant erotic dreams, fantasies and the need
Some of you are thinking, "How do I find a woman like this?" Well,
life with a nymphomaniac is not always what it might seem: she often
struggles with emotional detachment, compulsive behaviors and relational
infidelities. True nymphomania can actually be not just a woman with a healthy libido,
but a woman with an underlying medical condition.
So if your woman has an excessive, to the point where it is interfering with her
daily life, sexual desire, consider these organic causes of nymphomania.
This is especially true if she has had a sudden dramatic increase in libido and
desire as well.

These women say 'Yes'!
1. Hypothyroidism. An overactive thyroid can cause sexual desires to
spiral out of control.
2. Ovarian (follicular) cysts. Strangely enough, some ovarian cysts can
lead to hypersexuality, because sometimes the growth is estrogenic. The
increases estrogen boost libido dramatically, in some cases to unhealthy levels.
3. Parkinson's Medications. These drugs, which are dopamine agonists, can
lead to all sorts of compulsive behaviors, from gambling to nymphomania. 
Around 25% of patients will struggle with some sort of impulsive behavior.
4. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder. OCD behaviors and hypersexuality
can often go hand-in-hand.  One journal article relates the story of an
obsessive-compulsive woman who was "having intercourse up to 30 times in 24
hours".  After medications and considerable therapy, the clinicians felt
relieved to get her down to bring her sexual activity down to no more than three
or four days per week and no more than four or five partners per day!
5. Temporal Lobe Disorders and/or Epilepsy. Conditions in this area
of the brain have long been assoiciated with nyphomania.
The bottom line is that if your woman suddenly develops nympomania, rather than
breaking out the champagne, you may want to take some time to research whether
or not there there is an underlying physiological issue.
