Hypersexuality Problem

What/How do you know if someone is a hypersexuality or nympho? What to do if such person is hypersexual? How to treat them? Do you curse them, hate them, or even dont let them come step on your house? Being hypersexual is not your own choice, its just happen and that unlucky person is no reason to be condemn. Just put it this way if it happens to you and everybody around you will trun their back against you, what would you do? I happen to encounter such person and right now I have nothing agaisn't her or blaming herself to be one because I know for the fact that she is suffering it and wishing to have a normal life like others.

To make the situation worst is, she is only 17 yrs old and far too young to be facing this hypersexul problem. She admitted that at the age of 13 she loses her verginity to a boyfriend. Since then she's been doing it almost everyday or even more than once a day. It so sad to just find out and as to my dismay this person is not far in my heart. I'm very affected about it and can't think of anything to resolve the problem. She is a lovely girl and a very fine girl and once you stumble or cross her way you never could tell because of her innocent looking and naive outlook personality. Of course as young as 17 who could think she's been with many guys already. I really felt sad and for that I dont blame her or even condemn her but I felt that I should give her my love and understand her situation. I am browsing the net of what have many cause about this hypersexuality to have an idea and to understand more about it.

Also I am looking for a possible treatment, and hubby said perhaps a phychiatrist can help. I am really willing to help her because she is an ultimate love ones (part of family). Its not embarrassing to admit it because its not a choice, you know. I feel her pain and shame but not shame because she had this kind of disease but shame because she is only 17, too young to be suffer and too naive. Its really a difficult situation and I am looking for a professional help. Consulting and seeking for a solution online and perhaps take her to somekind of specialist to help her get through this problem she is right now. I hope for a solution sooner.

Here's some related articles I have found online......

Hypersexuality is desire to engage in human sexual behavior at a level high enough to be considered clinically significant.
Hypersexuality is characterized by a debilitating need for frequent genital stimulation which, once achieved, may fail to result in the expected long-term emotional -- or sexual -- satisfaction. This dissatisfaction is what is believed to encourage the heightened frequency of sexual stimulation, as well as additional physiological and neurological symptoms.
The concept of hypersexuality replaces the older concepts of nymphomania (or furor uterinus) and satyriasis. Nymphomania was believed to be a female psychological disorder characterized by an overactive libido and an obsession with sex. In males the disorder was called satyriasis (for etymology of the words, see nymph and satyr). "Nymphomania" and "satyriasis" are no longer listed as specific disorders in the DSM-IV, though they remain a part of ICD-10.
The threshold for what constitutes hypersexuality is subject to debate, and critics question whether a standardized diagnostic threshold even exists. Sex drive varies widely in humans; what one person would regard as a normal sex drive might be deemed to be excessive by some and low by others. The consensus among those who consider this a disorder is that the threshold is met when the behavior causes distress or impaired social functioning.
Hypersexuality may also be expressed in those with bipolar disorder during periods of mania. People who suffer from bipolar disorder may often display tremendous swings in sex drive, depending on their mood. Sometimes this physiological need for sexual activity is much higher than what they would describe as "normal" and at other times it is far below that.[

I just started a blog tonight on this same topic, as I am currently in treatment. My own problems also started when I was a young teenager, but I was able to hide it until the past couple of years. It is indeed embaressing to talk about it with others, as most people jump to conclusions about what a bad person you must be. Getting her into therapy would be a good start, and trying to understand what happened to her early on or if it is chemical, or a combination of the two.
