GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 5 In a strange turn of events,women who signed up for a new, non-surgical infertility treatment startedreporting unusual side-effects: increased or first-time-ever orgasms.
The therapy, which addresses reproductive tract adhesions, causedunexpected results in some patients when they returned home to their partners,according to physical therapist Belinda Wurn. (see www.clearpassage.com )
"I was dumbfounded when patients first started calling in these reports,"admits Wurn. "I wondered if it was a fluke." But as more patients reportedpowerful orgasms "like they'd never had in their lives" she decided toinvestigate further.
She consulted research gynecologist Richard King, MD, who becameintrigued. He suggested the therapists measure results in a controlledscientific study. When they did, "The results were actually staggering," Dr.King said.
"Orgasms increased in most subjects, but so did desire, arousal andlubrication," he said. Intercourse pain decreased in all but one woman,according to a study published in "Medscape General Medicine."
The study is important because sexual dysfunction affects nearly half ofall US women during their lives, according to medical literature, he said. Nostudy has shown success in so many areas of sexual dysfunction.
"I was shocked," said a 42-year-old infertility patient. "After therapy, Ibegan having sexual desire and responses unlike anything I've ever experiencedin my life! My husband is happy -- but he's actually getting exhausted with mynew-found libido!"
The non-invasive infertility treatment, developed by Clear PassageTherapies(R) (CPT) http://www.clearpassage.com involves a protocol of manualphysical therapy techniques that can be completed at any CPT clinic within oneweek. It does not use drugs or surgery.
Massage therapist Larry Wurn founded CPT with his wife, Belinda, aphysical therapist of 30 years. In 1987, Belinda developed pelvic pain andadhesions after a surgery. They developed work to relieve her pain. When theyused it on patients, several women who were diagnosed infertile becamepregnant naturally, and had babies.
The group has published medical studies and citations in journalsincluding "Fertility and Sterility" and "Medscape General Medicine" that showimprovements in fertility, pain and sexual function, after women received thenew therapy. Based on patient interest, they are expanding their investigationof treating sexual dysfunction.
