I was delighted to see an article that talked about a study that was carried out by the University of Michigan titled - Simple Nerve Stimulation May Improve Sexual Response in Women.
Obviously with a title like that it immediately got my attention for obvious reasons. I strongly suggest reading the full article, but in essence, it talks about a small study using nine women.
Female sexual dysfunction in notoriously hard to diagnose and even harder to treat. Drug options including the sildenafil pill (better known by the brand name Viagra), hormones and even flibanserin. This is a new drug designed to improve sexual response that is now available. The problems with these drugs are their side effects which often negate their effectiveness in some women.
The study, therefore, looked at how nerve stimulation could be used to treat sexual dysfunction and low libido.
"In this particular treatment, a patient receives nerve stimulation therapy once a week to improve neural signalling and function in the muscles that control the bladder."Tim Bruns, Ph.D.
Each woman in the trail was given twelve half-hour sessions of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), and the results were studied.
The good news is that eight of the nine women reported some improvement in arousal, lubrication and orgasm, something I can heartily concur with.
"Across a variety of clinical studies, if you get a 50 per cent improvement in symptoms, you can consider that a successful response, we had four participants meet or exceed that threshold."Tim Bruns, Ph.D.
The University is now seeking finance to be able to conduct a more extensive study. Their aim is to confirm their initial findings and to get more details of how e-stim can be used medically to treat sexual dysfunction as well as other conditions.
That is fantastic news, and I for one, would be happy to be involved, but as a lover of e-stim, I think I would be a bit biased.

One participant in the study was interviewed and said this about her experience:
"It worked for me, I'm not 100 per cent back to the way I was, but I can have orgasms again, and they are pretty good ones."Anonymous Study Participant
With that, I will leave you to read about the study or check out my e-stim resources.Yes, study shows that e-stim can have positive medical benefits such as treating low libido and sexual dysfunction in women. Click to Tweet
