objective (s): Sexual dysfunctions are the most common problem in women during reproductive life and pregnancy is associated with physiological changes in sexual function.. This study aimed to evaluate the sexual quality of life of women during pregnancy.
Methods: This cross-sectional study conducted on a sample of pregnant women referred to a teaching hospital affiliated to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences from October 2012 to July 2014. The data from these participants were obtained by a questionnaire consisting of three parts: demographic, history of obstetric information and sexual quality of life for women (SQOL-F). Women were followed-up during the 9-month in three trimester quarter. Data were analyzed by statistical tests (chi-square, t-test, and analysis of variance).
Results: A total of 300 women participated in the study with an average age of 2 .29 ± 4.13 years. The results showed that as pregnancy progressed, sexual quality of life decreased significantly (P=0.03).
Conclusion: The results showed that the sexual quality of life in pregnancy in the first, second and third trimesters varied and as pregnancy progressed sexual quality of life declined. Since sexual quality of life is an important issue in couple’s relationships, consultation for better adaptation to the physical and psychological changes during pregnancy seems essential.
