Fibroids and Sexuality

Dr Parker’s Comments: There have been very few studies examining the effect of fibroids on women’s sexual satisfaction, and even fewer on the effects of different treatment options on sexual satisfaction. For that reason, the current findings that women with fibroids have more pelvic pain with intercourse and that myomectomy appears to help many of these women are good steps in helping women understand their symptoms. Similar research with regard to other treatment options including uterine artery embolization, focused ultrasound, mefipristone, etc, are sorely needed.
