Water Vapor Thermal Therapy: Fewer Sexual Side Effects for Men with BPH

Men with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH - an enlarged prostate) could have fewer sexual side effects with water vapor thermal therapy than with certain medications, scientists have found. 

Their study, published online in November in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, compared results from two earlier studies on BPH treatments.

In the first study, men took doxazosin, finasteride, a combination of these two drugs, or a placebo.  In the second, men underwent water vapor thermal therapy or a sham therapy. 

Using three years of data from sexually active men in each study, the researchers determined that water vapor thermal therapy did not worsen sexual function. However, men taking medications did experience sexual difficulties, such as low desire and poorer erectile and ejaculatory function.
