Research reveals how Electrode stimulation helps women orgasm

Published

Female sexual dysfunction, often characterized by an inability to orgasm, affects a large number of women. However, scientists may now have stumbled upon an effective and noninvasive treatment for this condition: neuromodulation.
Around 40 percent of women experience sexual dysfunction, which is defined as “a problem that occurs during the sexual response cycle that prevents the individual from experiencing satisfaction from sexual activity.”

Currently, there are few treatments for female sexual dysfunction, and these have generally been ineffective.

Recently, however, researchers from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor have stumbled upon a therapy that, surprisingly, seems to boost women’s sexual function.



The scientists noticed that applying neuromodulation treatments, which involves light and targeted electrical stimulation, for bladder dysfunction seemed to also improve some of the women’s sexual function.

 “In this particular treatment, a patient receives nerve stimulation therapy once a week to improve neural signaling and function in the muscles that control the bladder,” explains researcher Tim Bruns.

“The nerves controlling the pelvic organs start out in the same location in the spinal cord and branch out,” he adds.

Bruns and colleagues found that stimulating one particular spot — an area close to the tibial nerve found in the ankle — helps treat bladder dysfunction.

It is unclear why placing electrodes on the ankle helps stimulate the pelvic area, but the team believes that the nerves that spread to the food may interact, in the region of the spinal cord, with nerves that reach the pelvic area.

This, the scientists say, may mean that synaptic routes overlap, and the electrical stimulation therefore comes to benefit the pelvic organs.

Because there was little to no research into whether this kind of therapy could help improve sexual function in women, Bruns and his colleagues decided to conduct the current studies both in animals and in humans.

The investigators tested the therapy’s effectiveness in a rat model. In the rodents, they stimulated nerves in both the genital and ankle regions. After about 15–30 minutes, they saw that the rats experienced a significant increase in vaginal blood flow, suggesting increased sensitivity.



In the recent study, Bruns and team then worked with female volunteers with healthy bladders but who were trying to overcome sexual dysfunction.

The volunteers all received 12 transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation therapy sessions, which lasted for half an hour each. During the sessions, the researchers placed electrodes either around the women’s genital areas or on their ankles.

After these sessions, 8 out of the 9 participants reported more intense arousal, better vaginal lubrication, or being able to achieve orgasm again.

The scientists have published these findings in the journal Neuromodulation and note that their results exceed expectations.

 “Across a variety of clinical studies, if you get a 50 percent improvement in symptoms, you can consider that a successful response,” notes Bruns, adding, “We had four participants meet or exceed that threshold.”

Please Read–Warning Signs of a Stroke

Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke – They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue.

During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall – she assured everyone that she was fine and she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes.

They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening.

Jane’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital – (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead.

It only takes a minute to read this.

A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.

Affairs and how to recover from it. Ain’t You Tired?

IDENTIFYING A STROKE

Read and Learn!
Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.
Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions:
S *Ask the individual to SMILE.

T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup)
R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS.

If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.

New Sign of a Stroke ——– Stick out Your Tongue

NOTE: Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is this: Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.

A cardiologist said that if everyone who gets this message shared it with 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.

Tanzania: officials summons WHO over Ebola claims

Tanzania’s government has summoned the World Health Organisation’s local representative over claims that they’re concealing information on Ebola virus infections in the country.

On Saturday, WHO said in a statement that it had learned of one suspected fatal case in the main city, Dar es Salaam, and two other infections but, despite repeated requests, was given no information.

Last week, Tanzania said it had no confirmed or suspected cases of Ebola.

Government spokesman Hassan Abbasi said on Twitter that the ministry of foreign affairs had summoned the WHO’s Tigest Ketsela Mengestu to obtain “in-depth details from the agency on reports circulating in the media”.

A short video clip has also been posted on the ministry’s Twitter account, showing Dr Tigest clarifying at a meeting with Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs Damas Ndumbaro that the WHO did not say there was Ebola in Tanzania:
