May, 2000. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) held its 48th Annual Clinical Meeting (ACM) in San Francisco, CA., at the Moscone Convention Center. The meeting began Monday, May 22 and ran through Wednesday, May 24. ACOG is a national medical organization which represents over 40,000 obstetricians and gynecologists throughout the United States. ACOG’s ACM is one of the largest gatherings of women’s health care practitioners, drawing thousands of physicians, experts, poster exhibitors, researchers, and guests.

Participants of the ACM are offered a large variety of continuing medical education courses with more than 35 post graduate courses, 42 clinical seminars, 24 paper sessions, 275 luncheon conferences, 8 scientific sessions, and current issue updates. ACM topics include obstetrics, oncology, primary/preventive care, endocrinology and infertility, and gynecology.

During the first day of the Poster Sessions, Monday, May 22, Winnifred Cutler, Ph.D. presented her scientific poster to the meeting participants. The Poster and Study titled, Sexual Response in Women, was co-authored by Dr. Cutler, Millicent Zacher, DO., Norma McCoy, Ph.D., Elizabeth Genovese, M.D., and Erika Friedmann, Ph.D. ACOG’s journal first announced the poster by publishing its abstract in the journal, Obstetrics and Gynecology, April 2000, Volume 95, Number 4, Page 19S-20S.

The authors’ objective was to investigate orgasmic experience in two groups of women. The first group:128 women with an intact uterus undergoing assessment in our women's wellness program. The second group: 39 patients with fibroid tumors.

The researchers demonstrated four conclusions, detailed in the poster, including their finding that women with fibroid tumors are more sexually responsive at both the vaginal site and at the cervical site, than intact well women. (See Table 5: Frequent Contribution to Orgasm by Site.)
