Full Study Name
Effect of Commercial Genital Vibrators Use on Female Wellness (IRB no. 00001138)
The purpose of this study is to gain knowledge about the effect of commercial genital vibrator use at home on women’s sexual health, pelvic floor disorders, and overall wellness. Study procedures include responding to questionnaires about bladder health, sexual health, and quality of life; physical exam; and regular use of vibrators at home.
In previous limited studies, vibrators have been shown to have various health benefits. Researchers would like to investigate further whether regular use of vibrators at home improves genitourinary and overall health.
