Electroacupuncture for postpartum sexual dysfunction with urinary incontinence:A prospective case series study
Objective:To observe the clinical therapeutic effect of electroacupuncture on postpartum sexual dysfunc-tion associated with urinary incontinence.Methods:The prospective case-series study was adopted.A total of 36 patients with postpartum sexual dysfunction associated with urinary incontinence were included consecutively.Electroacupuncture was applied to Shènshū(肾俞BL23),Huìyáng(会阳BL35),Pángguāngshū(膀胱俞BL28),Shíqīzhuī(十七椎EX-B8),Gìliáo(次髎BL32),Zhōngliáo(中髎BL33),Qìhǎi(气海CV6),Guānyuán(关元CV4),Zhōngjí(中极CV3),Qūgǔ(曲骨CV2),Shuǐdào(水道ST28),Zǐgōng(子宫EX-CA1),Zúsānlǐ(足三里ST36)and Sānyīnjiāo(三阴交SP6),once daily,6 times a week.The treatment for 2 weeks was as one phase and it should be completed in one menstrual cycle.For the cases without menstrual cycle recovery,the treatment should be given for any two weeks in one menstrual cycle and for those with menstrual cycle recovery,the treatment should avoid the menstrual period.Totally,the treatment lasted for 3 menstrual cycles.Before and after treatment,the scores of postpartum female sexual dysfunction diagnostic scale(PFSDDS),sexual inter-course pain assessment scale(SIPAS)and pelvic floor muscle strength test(PFMST),as well as the results of urodynamic examination(UE)were observed before and after treatment in the patients.Results:After treatment,the scores of PFSDDS,SIPAS and PFMST were all increased as compared with those before treatment separately,presenting the statistical significance(all P＜0.05).Regarding UE,after treatment,the maximum bladder capacity,detrusor pressure at maximum flow,maximum flow rate and maximal urethral closure pressure were increased and postvoiding residual urine volume was reduced obviously as compared with the values before treatment,respectively,indicating the statistical differences(all P＜0.05).Conclusion:Electroacupuncture has the significant effect on postpartum sexual dysfunction associated with urinary incontinence.
