Introduction: Recognizing and studying sexual tendencies and behaviors is one of the most important issues in public health, especially mental health. Sexual function is part of human life and behavior and is so intertwined with personality that it is impossible to speak of it as an independent phenomenon. Therefore, the present study aimed to determine some of the factors related to sexual function in women.
Materials and Methods: The present study was a descriptive-analytic cross-sectional study. A randomized sampling method was used which was conducted on 685 women referring to health centers in Ahwaz who were eligible to enter the study. The data collection tool was a Female Sexual Function Index. Finally, the obtained data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and chi square test in SPSS software (version 22).
Results: 56.8 percent of female subjects had functional impairment and 43.2% of subjects with no sexual dysfunction. The results of the analysis showed that sexual function was significantly associated with all demographic characteristics and contraceptive methods.
Conclusion: According to the findings of the study, the relationship between demographic characteristics and contraceptives with sexual function, the detection and elimination of sexual dysfunctions in improving the quality of marital affairs has an important role in preventing family disputes and their consequences in the society.
