Abstract

Reactions 1680, p153 - 2 Dec 2017 Temporary anorgasmia: case report A 44-year-old woman developed temporary anorgasmia following uterine artery embolisation (UAE) with gelatin particles [Embosphere]. The woman presented at a radiology clinic for evaluation of symptomatic fibroids. Her medical history included two uncomplicated vaginal deliveries and chronic iron deficiency anaemia with intermittent asthma. Her pelvic MRI showed multiple, moderately vascularised, intramural fibroids and a small sub mucosal fibroid. Presence of adenomyosis was confirmed by a thickened junctional zone. A decision to perform UAE was made. Both uterine arteries were embolised to stasis using a right common femoral artery access by one vial of gelatin particles 300 500 microns per side. She was admitted for observation overnight and pain management with analgesia. Next day she was discharged on pain control medicines. Two and half months after UAE, she presented for routine follow-up where she reported that her menstrual cycles were lighter and shorter. She complained that following the procedure, she had become anorgasmic and was no longer able to achieve internal or external orgasm [time to reaction onset not clearly stated]. Three months after UAE, the woman regained the ability to achieve external or clitoral orgasm while it took five months to regain the internal orgasm.
