BACKGROUND The effects on sexual function of surgical removal of parts of the clitoris are unknown. [...] Key MethodMETHOD We did a cross-sectional study to which we recruited 39 adults who had intersex conditions with ambiguous genitalia who were living as female from clinical (n=15) and peer-support (n=24) settings. We obtained data by use of a postal questionnaire, incorporating a validated sexual function assessment inventory.Expand
Severity of virilization is associated with cosmetic appearance and sexual function in women with congenital adrenal hyperplasia: a cross-sectional study.
TLDR
The level of confluence was the major determinant for cosmetic outcome; the impact depended on the number of surgeries performed. Expand
Impaired sexual and reproductive outcomes in women with classical forms of congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
TLDR
Sexual functioning as assessed by the Female Sexual Function Index was much lower in CAH women than controls and lowest inCAH women with high Prader stages, which means women with CAH still suffer major limitations in their sexual function and reproductive life. Expand
Avaliação do desempenho sexual após cirurgias corretivas de genitália ambígua Assessment of sexual performance after corrective surgery of ambiguous genitalia
TLDR
It was detected that sexual function is altered in patients undergoing corrective genital surgery, however, it cannot say whether this is due to the basic pathology or if it is a sole consequence of the surgical correction. Expand
Sexual function and surgical outcome in women with congenital adrenal hyperplasia due to CYP21A2 deficiency: clinical perspective and the patients' perception.
TLDR
The data show that the null genotype group was considerably more affected by the condition than the other groups and should be regarded as a subgroup, both psychologically and from a surgical perspective. Expand
Sexual function and genital sensitivity following feminizing genitoplasty for congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
TLDR
Genital sensitivity is impaired in areas where feminizing genital surgery had been done and impairment to sensitivity are linearly related to difficulties in sexual function. Expand
Psychological Adjustment of Children with Ambiguous Genitalia (Disorder of Sex Development) and Their Parents
Background: Potential long-term squeal of ambiguous genitalia and its surgical correction does not only include functional problems for example incontinence or difficulties in voiding, but alsoExpand
Self-assessment of genital anatomy and sexual function within a Belgian, Dutch-speaking female population: a validation study.
TLDR
Replication of the original pilot study results support the validity of the SAGAS-F questionnaire, and the clitoris itself appeared to be the most sensitive, consistent with maximum nerve density in this area. Expand
Sexual function in adult life following Passerini-Glazel feminizing genitoplasty in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia.
TLDR
Although clitoral sensitivity in sexually active patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia treated with Passerini-Glazel feminizing genitoplasty is significantly reduced compared to controls, sexual function in those patients is not statistically or clinically significantly different from their healthy counterparts. Expand
Adult Outcomes of Feminizing Surgery
TLDR
It is becoming apparent that there is considerable distress amongst patient groups and disquiet amongst some clinicians particularly with regards to genital surgery, and recent debate has focused on all aspects of surgery including indications, timing, and outcomes. Expand
Sexual function and attitudes toward surgery after feminizing genitoplasty.
TLDR
Low sexual desire and problems in achieving orgasm were common but severe pain experiences during penetrative sex were rare in both groups and satisfactory sex life is possible in adulthood. Expand

Sexual function in women with complete androgen insensitivity syndrome.
TLDR
Vaginal hypoplasia and negative psychological adaptation to living with an intersex condition are likely to have contributed to the high rates of sexual problems found in this study. Expand
A Comparative Study of Sexual Experiences
TLDR
CAH women were found to be less sexually experienced in all areas, and reported higher levels of penetration difficulties, pain, and lubrication problems than the diabetic women, suggesting that the contribution of psychological factors to these problems may be at least as great as that of medical/ surgical factors.

Management of ambiguous genitalia in pseudohermaphrodites: new perspectives on vaginal dilation.
TLDR
In pseudohermaphrodites with female social sex, surgical correction of external genitalia performed in childhood and vaginal dilation with acrylic molds performed when they wished to start having sexual intercourse resulted in best outcome. Expand

TLDR
Biological and social factors seem responsible for the development of gender identity disorder, such as pre- and postnatal hormonal influences on the brain enabling deviant gender role behavior to develop, and an inability on the part of parents to accept the sex assignment. Expand

Single-stage feminization genitoplasty.
TLDR
A modified technique for feminization genitoplasty is presented, which combines the main features of the Hendren and Crawford pull-through operation and the Kogan reduction clitoroplasty with the universal use of the urogenital sinus to form the distal urethra, which avoids creation of female hypospadias.
