Abstract

Objective. To investigate the effects of conventional and single port laparoscopically assisted vaginal hysterectomy (LAVH) on sexual function in premenopausal women. Design. A prospective case-control study. Setting. University teaching hospital. Population. A total of 95 premenopausal women having LAVH from January 2009 to December 2009. Methods. Comparison of 47 premenopausal women who had single port LAVH using trans-umbilical GelPort access (SP-LAVH group) and 48 premenopausal women who had conventional multiport LAVH (conventional LAVH group). Main outcome measures. Evaluation of sexual function was done prior to and six months after surgery using a validated tool, the female sexual function index (FSFI). Results. In terms of women's demographic characteristics and operative results, there was no significant difference between the two study groups, or between pre- and postoperative individual domain scores or total female sexual function index in women who underwent either conventional or single port LAVH. Conclusions. Neither conventional nor single port LAVH affects sexual function in premenopausal women. Women can be counseled that this type of surgery is unlikely to alter sexual function.
