Understanding how to control hypersexuaity bipolar disorder is a very important part of being able to help a patient through this rather difficult time. Because of the fact that the symptom of hypersexuality is more closely associated with the manic phase of bipolar disorder, there is a significant chance that the individual will later on regret his or her actions. Moreover, studies have also shown that hypersexuality is also characterized by the need for frequent genital stimulation that does not necessarily result in satisfaction, thereby encouraging a heightened level of sexual stimulation. Treatment of hypersexuality in bipolar disorder will, first and foremost require proper diagnosis by a trained physician or doctor. Once the condition has been diagnosed through a series of tests, the doctor will prescribe a few medications that will serve to provide some balance in the chemical composition of the body, thereby providing more stability. Because of the seriousness of the condition, there are no home remedies suggested and all treatment should be provided by a trained physician with the help of mostly prescription medication.
