Abstract

Purpose: To explore if sexual intercourse or masturbation could be a new therapy for distal ureteric stones. Method: PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library was used to search for Randomized Control Trials (RCT) about sexual intercourse or masturbation for distal ureteric stones. Result: 6 RCTs were included in this meta-analysis. Between Tamsulosin group and sexual intercourse or masturbation group, no significant difference exists in stones expulsion rate at the second week (OR: 1.54, 95% CI: 0.80 to 2.96, P=0.20, I2=57%) and at the fourth week (OR: 1.43, 95% CI: 0.79 to 2.61, P=0.24, I2=2%), stone expulsion time (Mean Difference [MD]: - 2.54, 95% Confidence Intervals [CI]: - 5.18 to 0.11, P=0.06, I2=76%), and number of needed analgesic injections (MD:- 0.38, 95% CI: - 0.85 to 0.10, P=0.12, I2=90%). Between sexual intercourse or masturbation group and symptomatic treatment group, there were significant difference in stones expulsion rate at the second week (OR: 4.33, 95% CI: 2.90 to 6.47, P<0.01, I2=18%) and at the fourth week (OR: 4.54, 95% CI: 2.70 to 7.63, P<0.01, I2=0%), stone expulsion time (MD: - 3.64, 95% CI: - 6.76 to - 0.52, P=0.02, I2=84%), and number of needed analgesic injections (MD: - 0.52, 95% CI: 0- .94 to - 0.11, P=0.01, I2=88%). Conclusion: Sexual intercourse or masturbation could be a new therapy for distal ureteric stones.
