Some Transgender Women Choose Vulvoplasty

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. 

Penile Doppler Ultrasound Protocols Not Standardized

Lack of standardization for penile duplex Doppler ultrasound (PDDU) makes it difficult to interpret results, say the authors of a recent paper.

"A Critical Analysis of Methodology Pitfalls in Duplex Doppler Ultrasound in the Evaluation of Patients With Erectile Dysfunction: Technical and Interpretation Deficiencies" by Dr. Bruno Nascimento, et al. is the subject of our website's latest research summary. 

The Journal of Sexual Medicine first published the study online on July 3, 2020.
