Title:

Amielle vaginal trainers - A patient evaluation. (1998 2521)

Source:

Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Vol 18(2) (pp46-147), 1998.

Abstract:

Ten consecutive patients presenting to a gynaecology clinic with a principal diagnosis of secondary vaginismus and superficial dyspareunia were given a set of Amielle vaginal trainers and instructed in their use. They were subsequently sent a questionnaire asking for their evaluation of the efficacy of the trainers. Nine patients (90%) reported a substantial improvement or complete cure of their symptoms. All patients who used the vaginal trainers gave favourable reports on the physical characteristics of the product. Amielle vaginal trainers seem both effective in the treatment of vaginismus and superficial dyspareunia and aesthetically acceptable to majority of patients.
