What causes PCD?
There are a few suggestions as to the causes of PCD such as:
•Hormonal imbalance that leads to some form of irritability, mood swings or anxiety
•Poor choice of partners where most women regret the choice of the men they have long after they are tied to the relationship. This is common in both parties an to some extend leads to other marital problems if it persists. However, Robert Simmons, MD, a clinical psychologist in Virginia, says that feeling “blue” after sex because of regretting a choice of partner does not fall under the definition of PCD and is not a type of sexual dysfunction.
