Women who were treated surgically for stress urinary incontinence (SUI) not only reported an improvement in their SUI symptoms, but they also gained improvement in their sexual function, according to a new study presented at the annual meeting of the Society of Gynecologic Surgeons.
While researchers aren’t exactly sure why women experienced sexual improvement, this finding establishes a link between pelvic floor disorders and sexual function, which is an important discovery for doctors and patients alike! For patients, this study may provide reassurance for those who are nervous about undergoing surgery to improve their SUI symptoms. It may comfort them to know that their symptoms may be related, and that surgery may benefit a wider range of concerns than previously thought. For doctors, this promising finding is a step closer to understanding the causes of sexual dysfunction, and the relationship between pelvic disorders and sexual function. Ultimately, studies like this help us to better serve you!
