Female Sexual Dysfunction Management After Pubovaginal/Midurethral Sling Surgery The complexity of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) in women with stress urinary incontinence makes the diagnosis and treatment difficult. While the prevalence is high for both conditions, they are often underreported. Although the impact of sling surgery on sexual outcomes remains controversial, this type of procedure is known to cause sexual dysfunction in a subset of women. In this article, we review the prevalence of FSD, its intricate relationship with incontinence, the pathophysiology linking sling placement to sexual dysfunction, and the outcomes of treatment directed at FSD arising from sling surgery. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Current Sexual Health Reports Springer Journals

Abstract

The complexity of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) in women with stress urinary incontinence makes the diagnosis and treatment difficult. While the prevalence is high for both conditions, they are often underreported. Although the impact of sling surgery on sexual outcomes remains controversial, this type of procedure is known to cause sexual dysfunction in a subset of women. In this article, we review the prevalence of FSD, its intricate relationship with incontinence, the pathophysiology linking sling placement to sexual dysfunction, and the outcomes of treatment directed at FSD arising from sling surgery.
