Some Transgender Women Choose Vulvoplasty
Penile Doppler Ultrasound Protocols Not Standardized
Some transgender women choose gender-confirming vulvoplasty over vaginoplasty, according to a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study.
Researchers asked 17 patients undergoing vulvoplasty about the motivations behind their choice.
Almost 60% of the respondents said they weren't interested in penetrative sex. About a quarter said that negative sexual experiences in the past influenced their decision.
More details on the study, including satisfaction ratings and complications from surgery, can be found here.
