Androgen Deprivation Therapy Might Reduce Pedophilic Fantasies
New Video Posted to VJPU
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) could be a viable way to treat men with pedophilic disorder, according to the results of a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine paper.
The study involved 12 men aged 25 to 74 with pedophilic disorder. All of the men were treated with ADT. Six of the men received injections of triptorelin, a luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) agonist. The remaining six took cyproterone acetate (CPA) in pill form.
Most of the men said that they felt calmer and had fewer pedophilic fantasies with ADT.
"I don't tend to look at children anymore," one man said. "If I meet children on the street, I just let them pass."
Bone loss, weight gain, and breast development were the most common side effects.
