Most transgender women who undergo vaginoplasty are satisfied with their results, researchers report.
Their study, published online in February in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, involved 25 individuals who had male-to-female gender-affirming surgery.
Each woman completed questionnaires about her sexual function before and after surgery and her psychological health.
The researchers also assessed each woman's genital sensitivity at the new clitoris, labia, vaginal opening, and anus.
The women had "good genital sensitivity" and had sex more frequently after their surgery, the authors wrote. Most said they had no regrets.
