When a person exhibits the symptoms of several paraphilias, but there is no way to stick to a specific type, it is usually diagnosed as unspecified paraphilia. Because of the unknown nature of this disorder, the exact causes may be hard to determine, but for most they center around psychological or physiological reasons. Whatever the determining factor, various symptoms may appear. When they do, getting a diagnosis is important so that treatment can begin. We offer online therapy for unspecified paraphilia here at GoMentor.com, but before going into that, here are some other tidbits of information about this sexual disorder that will help you make the decision about our online treatment options.
Causes of Unspecified Paraphilia
As with most other paraphilias, not a lot is known about why these sexual disorders appear. There are many people who believe they are sometimes caused by sexual abuse during childhood. This is not always the case, however. For some people, a simple incident or two with an object or type of sex act may lead to stronger and stronger urges and desires. This is why some also think that other obsessive compulsive disorders may play a role in unspecified paraphilia. With proper treatment, the cause of the disorder will be eventually discovered, which will help with treatment.
Symptoms and Dangers of Unspecified Paraphilia
Because of the unspecified nature of this sexual disorder, it may be hard to pinpoint the exact symptoms that appear, but in general they will center around sexual activity, often with a need for a particular object, situation or person to be sexually gratified. The intensity of the symptoms will also vary from person to person, but if left unchecked the chances of serious consequences increases dramatically. For this reason, if any of the symptoms of paraphilias appear, getting a proper diagnosis should be a priority. If unspecified paraphilia is diagnosed, there is hope for help.
