Author(s): Dr. Madras Loukya
Abstract:
Introduction: Sexual dysfunction adversely affects quality of life, self-esteem and interpersonal relationships and it may often be responsible for psychopathological disturbances. The purpose of this study was to explore the prevalence and associated risk factors for Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) in women.
Material and Methods: This was a cross-sectional descriptive survey which included 120 women aged 18–50 years old, married, who were interviewed as per the Iranian version of Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI): The subjects were randomly selected from 4 primary health centres.
Results: According to the findings, 34 (28.33%) women reported FSD. Prevalence of FSD increased with age, from 12.5% in women aged <20 years to 72.73% in women aged 40-50 years. FSD was detected as a desire problem in 44.11% of women, an arousal problem in 20.58%, a lubrication problem in 11.76%, an orgasm problem in 8.82%, a satisfaction problem in 8.82% and a pain problem in 5.58%. The educational level was inversely correlated with the risk of FSD. Patients with FSD were significantly more likely to be older than 40 years, who had sexual intercourse fewer than 3 times a week No significant differences were detected in smoking history, residences and contraception methods used (p>0.05)
Conclusion: FSD needs to be recognized as a significant public health problem in Kurd women. Further research, particularly studies on awareness and competency of physicians in the management of FSD, is required.
