Painful Sex in Women: Studies Show High Prevalence, but New Hope
Date:3/4/2008

GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Painful sex has afflicted half the women in the US, but recent scientific studies show relief may be in sight for many women.

Two recent published studies show that a manual physical therapy that feels like a deep massage, the Wurn Technique(R), reduced or eliminated intercourse pain in up to 96% of the women. See http://www.clearpassage.com

The treatment uses neither drugs nor surgery. Physical therapists Belinda Wurn says, "We believe tiny adhesions form on the vaginal walls, or deep within the urogenital organs. This therapy appears to detach those adhesions strand by strand, decreasing pain and increasing function."

"American Family Physician" and "Obstetrics and Gynecology" indicated that 46% to 60% of sexually active US women suffer, or have suffered, from painful intercourse. However, very few medical approaches address the condition.

"Until now, our medical toolbox has been extremely limited in treating intercourse pain," said research gynecologist Richard King, MD. "Pain relievers and desensitizing agents offer a poor solution for this common and debilitating condition."

Citations in "Fertility and Sterility" and "Medscape General Medicine" showed significantly decreased or eliminated intercourse pain for women with endometriosis and for those in the general population after they received the new therapy.

Two related studies showed that the therapy increased sexual function in several areas, including desire, arousal, lubrication, and orgasm in most study participants. In other studies, the therapy increased pregnancies in women diagnosed infertile.

Belinda and her husband, massage therapist Larry Wurn, developed the patent-protected therapy, called the Wurn Technique(R) over the last 20 years. Initially developed to address pain Belinda experienced after pelvic cancer and surgery, the therapy can be completed in three to five days at Clear Passage Therapies(R) clinics in several US locations.
