INTRODUCTION: Ospemifene, an oral selective estrogen receptor modulator approved for the treatment of mild to moderate dyspareunia from menopause, has been shown to moderate sexual pain and vaginal epithelial cell characteristics. However, no prospective vulvoscopic studies have been performed. AIM: To examine, in menopausal women taking ospemifene 60 mg daily, changes to the vulva, vestibule, urethral meatus, and vaginal region over 20 weeks using vulvoscopy in a prospective open-label pilot study...

PURPOSE: Symptomatic rectocele results in obstructed defecation and constipation. Surgical repair may provide symptomatic relief. A variety of surgical procedures have been used in the rectocele repair to enhance anatomical and functional results and to improve long-term outcomes. METHODS: In this prospective study, we treated 25 selected women suffering from simple symptomatic rectocele with transperineal repair using porcine dermal acellular collagen matrix Biomesh (Permacol®)...

AIM: This study aimed to evaluate sexual activity and quality of life (QOL) after transvaginal mesh (TVM) surgery in Japanese patients with pelvic organ prolapse (POP). The objective cure rate and associated complications were also investigated. METHODS: The cases of patients who underwent TVM surgery were retrospectively analyzed. QOL was assessed using the Prolapse Quality of Life Questionnaire (P-QOL), and sexual function was evaluated using the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) before surgery and 12 months after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Curative management of deep infiltrating endometriosis requires complete removal of all endometriotic implants. Surgical approach to rectal involvement has become a topic of debate given potential postoperative bowel dysfunction and complications.

PURPOSE: Endometriosis is a hormone-dependent, inflammatory, painful condition affecting 1 in 10 women during their reproductive years. The symptoms of endometriosis-dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, infertility-negatively impact the quality of life (QoL) of the affected women. Few studies have been conducted on mental health and QoL impact in a younger endometriosis patient population (adolescents and young women). This study quantitative, cross-sectional study was designed to address this gap by ascertaining whether coping strategies may impact the QoL of this patient population...

Endometriosis is an estrogen-dependent inflammatory disease that causes infertility and chronic pelvic pain. Ovarian endometrioma is the most common form of endometriosis, and conservative surgery is the main preferred therapeutic approach for endometrioma-associated symptoms. The aim of this study was to investigate the persistence of cyclic and noncyclic pelvic pain (NCPP) after endometrioma excision and their relationship to clinical and histopathological findings. In this prospective observational study, 41 symptomatic patients were evaluated for the presence of pain symptoms 3 to 6 months after endometrioma excision...

BACKGROUND: Ovarian endometriotic cysts, also known as 'chocolate' cysts or ovarian endometriomas, appear as endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity which grows inside ovaries. Endometriotic cysts can cause chronic pelvic pain, dysmenorrhea, dyspareunia, impairment of ovarian function in regards to subfertility, etc. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is effectively treating subfertility associated with endometriosis for years, and the treatment gives positive results in achieving pregnancy...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) commonly causes infection of the skin, soft tissue, bones and heart. MRSA is a rarely reported organism of prostatic abscess (PA). We present a case of an intravenous drug user who presented with dyspareunia, dysuria and dyschezia after a traumatic injury to the rectum. He was diagnosed with PA, which was treated with transurethral resection of the prostate drainage and intravenous antibiotics. MRSA PA carries a low case fatality rate on early diagnosis and treatment with proper antibiotics with or without drainage of the abscess...

Obstetric anal sphincter injury (OASI) is the most common cause of anal incontinence and ano-rectal symptoms in women1 . Reported rates of anal incontinence following primary repair of OASI range between 15-61%, with a mean of 39%2, 3 . Other possible complications of OASI include perineal pain, dyspareunia, and less commonly, abscess formation, wound breakdown, and rectovaginal fistulae. Symptom onset may occur immediately, several years postpartum, or only late in life when aging of tissues adds to the delivery insult...

BACKGROUND: Vulvodynia is the most common type of chronic pelvic pain and dyspareunia in premenopausal women. The effect of drugs for the treatment of vulvodynia remains poorly discussed. OBJECTIVES: To conduct a systematic review of randomised controlled studies which assess medications used to treat vulvar pain in vulvodynia. SEARCH STRATEGY: Web of Science, Cochrane Library, EBSCO Academic, LILACS and MEDLINE were searched from 1985 to September 2016...

REVIEW
Stephan Gordts, Grigoris Grimbizis, Rudi Campo
Where histology used the presence of glands and/or stroma in the myometrium as pathognomonic for adenomyosis, imaging uses the appearance of the myometrium, the presence of striations, related to the presence of endometrial tissue within the myometrium, the presence of intramyometrial cystic structures and the size and asymmetry of the uterus to identify adenomyosis. Preliminary reports show a good correlation between the features detected by imaging and the histological findings. Symptoms associated with adenomyosis are abnormal uterine bleeding, pelvic pain (dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, dyspareunia), and impaired reproduction...

Anne Marie C Neill
Objective Referral audit - are local recommendations required to translate guideline to practice? Study design In total, 50 consecutive, anonymised referral letters reviewed during the initial consultation in a specialist menopause clinic; the reasons for referral along with the patient's age and the source of referral were analysed. Results Several common reasons for referral were identified. Sexual dysfunction, including loss of libido and dyspareunia, resulted in 11 (22%) referrals. Ten (20%) women were troubled by persistent symptoms or side effects from HRT; 9 (18%) women were referred before hormone replacement therapy was discussed or commenced; 7 (14%) women seeking advice for their menopausal symptoms had a family or personal history of cancer; 5(10%) were migraineurs; 2(4%) women had premature ovarian insufficiency; 2(4%) were denied hormone replacement therapy because of concern about venous thromboembolism risk; and 4 (8%) had miscellaneous medical disorders...

To assess whether our novel uterus-sparing procedure- laparoscopic organopexy with non-mesh genital(LONG) suspension is an effective, safe, and timesaving surgery for the treatment of apical prolapse. Forty consecutive women with main uterine prolapse stage II or greater defined by the POP quantification(POP-Q) staging system were referred for LONG procedures at our hospitals. Clinical evaluations before and 6 months after surgery included pelvic examination, urodynamic study, and a personal interview to evaluate urinary and sexual symptoms with overactive bladder symptom score(OABSS), the short forms of Urogenital Distress Inventory(UDI-6) and Incontinence Impact Questionnaire(IIQ-7), and the Female Sexual Function Index(FSFI)...

Endometriosis can have several different presentations, including overt ascites and peritonitis; increased awareness can improve diagnostic accuracy and patient outcomes. We aim to provide a systematic review and report a case of endometriosis with this unusual clinical presentation. The PubMed/MEDLINE database was systematically reviewed until October 2016. Women with histologically-proven endometriosis presenting with clinically significant ascites and/or frozen abdomen and/or encapsulating peritonitis were included; those with potentially confounding conditions were excluded...

Based on the best evidence available, we have provided guidelines for clinical practice to target the nature of endometriosis as a disease, the consequences of its natural history on management, and the clinical and imaging evaluation of the disease according to the level of care (primary care, specialized or referral). The frequency of endometriosis is unknown in the general population; endometriosis requires management when it causes symptoms (pain, infertility) or when it affect the function of an organ...
