Objective: To assess the efficacy of conjugated equine estrogen cream in reducing dyspareunia associated with secondary provoked vestibulodynia. Vulvodynia has been redefined by the International Society for the Study of Vulvovaginal Disease as vulvar discomfort in the absence of gross anatomic or neurologic findings. Pathophysiological mechanisms that cause cycle disturbance, anovulation, and infertility are reviewed, as are clinical presentations of common menstrual disorders and their treatment.

Originated from Neijing Internal Classic , this method is the primary point locating method in ancient times, corresponding to the forms of acupoints in Neijing Internal Classic , the points are located though palpation. Trials of acupuncture for treatment of provoked and unprovoked vulvodynia using identical acupoints, a vulvar algesiometer for objective pain measurement, and standardized, validated, tools for outcome assessment are needed.
Treatments described include general vulvar care, topical medications, oral medications, injectables, biofeedback and physical therapy, dietary changes with supplementations, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, and surgery. IntroductionThe incidence of vulvodynia in American women has been reported to be between 8. Progress in reproductive biology has been rapid, and the research spans several disciplines. Healthy subjects were recruited to participate in two sequential experiments. Liu Feng-wu was a famous Chinese gynecologist in the middle of the 20th century. Conclusion: Daily application of conjugated equine estrogen cream to the vulvar vestibule could potentially reduce superficial dyspareunia in women with secondary provoked vestibulodynia, but a randomized trial with adequate statistical power will be required to demonstrate this.
Results highlight difficulties experienced across all domains of sexual function, particularly with regard to dyspareunia, for women with vulvodynia. Guidelines on lifestyle and use of the eight Extraordinary Vessels are provided, with case studies allowing easy application of theory to practice throughout. In each session, subjects received one of four treatments: placebo pills described as Tylenol , sham acupuncture, genuine acupuncture, or no treatment rest control condition. Effect sizes and qualitative analyses of practitioner-initiated interviews showed overall positive effects of acupuncture, but there were statistically significant improvements only in pain with manual genital stimulation and helplessness. However, these differences are relatively modest, suggesting that factors in addition to the specific effects of needling are important contributors to the therapeutic effects of acupuncture. All had experienced severe distress and impairment of sexual function and usual treatments had failed. An examination of effect sizes also revealed strong though nonsignificant effects for improved ability to have intercourse and sexual desire.

Acupuncture for the treatment of vulvodynia: A randomized wait-list controlled pilot study. Author by : Feng-wu Liu Language : en Publisher by : Blue Poppy Enterprises, Inc.

Acupuncture did not significantly increase sexual desire, sexual arousal, lubrication, ability to orgasm or sexual satisfaction in women with vulvodynia.
Methods Thirty-six women with vulvodynia met inclusion criteria. This study should be replicated in a larger double-blind randomized controlled trial, and if results indicate, this acupuncture treatment protocol should be considered a valid and important option in the treatment of this incapacitating pain syndrome. The women were randomly assigned either to the acupuncture group or to the wait-list control group. The book then turns to pathophysiology and examines the conditions under which the menstrual cycle may become abnormal. Experiment one is a five-session crossover study. Originating from an Internet conference held in February 1998, this volume contains fourteen papers that have been revised and updated to cover everything from the impact of the birth control pill to contemporary views on reproduction to the pharmacological properties of various herbal substances, reflecting the historical, contemporary, and anthropological perspectives of this timely and complex issue.
