GAINESVILLE, Fla., March 5 /PRNewswire/ -- In a strange turn of events, women who signed up for a new, non-surgical infertility treatment started reporting unusual side-effects: increased or first-time-ever orgasms.
The therapy, which addresses reproductive tract adhesions, caused unexpected results in some patients when they returned home to their partners, according to physical therapist Belinda Wurn. (see http://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 reported powerful orgasms "like they'd never had in their lives" she decided to investigate further.
She consulted research gynecologist Richard King, MD, who became intrigued. He suggested the therapists measure results in a controlled scientific study. When they did, "The results were actually staggering," Dr. King said.
"Orgasms increased in most subjects, but so did desire, arousal and lubrication," 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 of all US women during their lives, according to medical literature, he said. No study has shown success in so many areas of sexual dysfunction.
"I was shocked," said a 42-year-old infertility patient. "After therapy, I began having sexual desire and responses unlike anything I've ever experienced in my life! My husband is happy -- but he's actually getting exhausted with my new-found libido!"
The non-invasive infertility treatment, developed by Clear Passage Therapies(R) (CPT) http://www.clearpassage.com involves a protocol of manual physical therapy techniques that can be completed at any CPT clinic within one week. It does not use drugs or surgery.
Massage therapist Larry Wurn founded CPT with his wife, Belinda, a physical therapist of 30 years. In 1987, Belinda developed pelvic pain and adhesions after a surgery. They developed work to relieve her pain. When they used it on patients, several women who were diagnosed infertile became pregnant naturally, and had babies.
The group has published medical studies and citations in journals including "Fertility and Sterility" and "Medscape General Medicine" that show improvements in fertility, pain and sexual function, after women received the new therapy. Based on patient interest, they are expanding their investigation of treating sexual dysfunction.
