Abstract

This study aimed to determine the factors affecting sexual function and satisfaction in middle-aged women in Khouzestan, Iran. Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out among 437 middle-aged women who visited healthcare centers of Ahvaz, southwest of Iran, during 2015. The subjects were selected by using multistage sampling method. A demographic form, Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), and Index of Sexual Satisfaction (ISS) were employed for data collection. The data were analyzed by using SPSS, version 21 with descriptive statistics and correlation test. Results: The correlation coefficient between sexual function and sexual satisfaction was significant and was calculated at 0.717 (P<0.05), suggesting a significant positive correlation between sexual function and sexual satisfaction. Conclusion: Our study showed that the scores of all sexual function domains raised with increasing sexual function scores. In addition, we noted a relationship between sexual function and total sexual satisfaction. Our findings can help identify the factors affecting sexual function and sexual satisfaction. We recommend designing more complex models depicting the long-term relationship between sexual function and sexual satisfaction. © 2018 Journal of Advanced Pharmacy Education & Research.
