On Conditions of Swedish Women’s Sexual Well-Being : An Epidemiological Approach

Öberg, Katarina January 2005 (has links)
Objectives: This descriptive epidemiological dissertation aims to identify conditions of Swedish women’s sexual well-being. The focus is on the relationship between their idiosyncratically reported levels, during the last 12 months, of 5 sexual functions/dysfunctions per se and distressing and their socio-psychological situation, including aspects of their sexual history. Levels of sexual functions/dysfunctions are also related to levels of sexual satisfaction and to other aspects of life satisfaction. Methods: Data on a randomized cross-sectional national sample of 1335 women aged 18-74 (59% of target sample) were gathered in 1996 using a combination of structured interviews and questionnaires/checklists. Analyses were performed for the total sample or for sub-samples aged 18-65 years. In 3 of the 4 dissertational articles, trichotomies of a 6-grade scale characterizing level of sexual dysfunctions into No/Mild/Manifest dysfunction were used. Main results: Mild sexual dysfunctions were, generally, much more common than were manifest, and dysfunctional distress was considerably less common than were dysfunctions per se. All dysfunctions, and in particular orgasmic dysfunction, were closely associated with level of sexual well-being. Four factors independently pair-wise linking levels of dysfunctions per se with levels of distressful dysfunction were identified. These were Sexual interest/Desire, Genital function (lubrication and dyspareunia), Orgasm, Vaginismus. Three of these (not vaginismus) were powerful classificators of gross level of sexual well-being. Many of socio-demographic and socio-psychological contextual life-conditions were significantly associated with the different sexual functions/dysfunctions. However, the most prominent contextual variables were satisfaction with partner relationship and partner’s levels of sexual functions. In conclusion, many different socio-psychological aspects must be taken into account to optimize treatment modalities and resources when dealing with women’s sexual dysfunction in order to secure a good level of sexual well-being.

Rozdíly v sexuálním chování a postojích mezi dobře a méně orgastickými ženami / Differences in sexual behavior and attitudes between highly and less orgasmic women

Polcarová, Aneta January 2014 (has links)
The aim of our investigation is to explore a sexual life, experience and attitudes of women who are divided into for groups, according to their ability to reach orgasm during partnered sexual activities. We try to identify possible differences between these groups in diverse sexual areas. We do not formulate any hypothesis, our research has an exploratory character. We used data from 905 women, who participated in a nationwide research, that aims to investigate changes in Czech population sexual behavior. The research is in progress since 1993 and it repeats every five years. Our sample originates from a data collection in 2008. The data collection (using anonymous questionnaire) was conducted by a specialized agency DEMA a.s. The data were processed using SPSS 16.0. Our results are following: The orgastic ability decreases with age. Widows, pensioners, and Roman Catholics rarely experience orgasm. Highly orgasmic women are of higher education. These women engaged into partnered sexual activities (such as necking, petting, sexual intercourse) earlier than the less orgasmic women did. The highly orgasmic women more masturbate. They also reported a higher number of sexual partners during their life, and they engage into a casual sex and diverse sexual practices more often. Furthermore, the highly...

(Dis)função sexual, depressão e ansiedade em pacientes ginecológicas / Sexual dysfunction, depression, and anxiety in gynecological patients

Bárbara Braga de Lucena 05 July 2013 (has links)
Os objetivos do presente estudo foram: (1) avaliar a função sexual feminina e a presença de depressão e ansiedade; (2) verificar a associação entre disfunção sexual feminina (DSF), depressão e ansiedade e (3) identificar as variáveis relacionadas com os domínios: desejo, excitação, orgasmo e dor durante a relação sexual Participaram do estudo 110 pacientes saudáveis (idade: 18-61, média:38,5 anos) que aguardavam consulta ambulatorial de prevenção ginecológica no Hospital das Clínicas da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de São Paulo (HCFMUSP). A avaliação foi realizada com questionários específicos desenvolvidos para a pesquisa, juntamente com o Quociente Sexual Feminino (QS-F), Inventário Beck de Depressão (BDI-II) e Inventário Beck de Ansiedade (BAI). A análise das respostas mostrou que do total da amostra, 36 (32,7%) mulheres apresentavam inibição de desejo; 16 (14,5%), problemas de excitação; 35 (31,8%), dificuldades de orgasmo; 31 (28,2%) queixavam-se de dor durante a relação; e 39 (35,5%) atingiram pontuação inferior a 60 no QS-F, indicando DSF em geral. Depressão e ansiedade acometeram 26 (23,6%) e 37 (33,6%) pacientes, respectivamente. Os dados também revelaram uma relação significante entre DSF, depressão e ansiedade, além de identificar fatores de risco para os domínios sexuais. Diminuição do desejo sexual foi associada à depressão, ansiedade, escolaridade, incômodo com próprio o corpo, masturbação e educação sexual; problemas de excitação foram ligados à depressão, ansiedade, idade, escolaridade, incômodo com o próprio corpo, medo relacionado a sexo e educação sexual; orgasmo foi impactado por depressão, ansiedade, escolaridade, incômodo com o próprio corpo, medo relacionado a sexo, vergonha durante o ato sexual, masturbação e educação sexual; queixas de dor durante a relação sexual foram associadas à depressão, renda, escolaridade e educação sexual; por fim, fatores relevantes para a presença de DSF em geral foram depressão, ansiedade, escolaridade, incômodo com o próprio corpo, medo relacionado ao sexo, vergonha durante o ato sexual e educação sexual. Modelos de regressão foram utilizados para identificar as variáveis mais significantes para cada domínio da atividade sexaul. Com efeito, desejo sexual é inibido pela presença de depressão; o nível de excitação é negativamente impactado por depressão e pelo aumento da idade; a capacidade de atingir o orgasmo é reduzida pela baixa escolaridade, pela ansiedade e por medos relacionados ao sexo; e tanto dor durante o intercurso quanto DSF em geral estão diretamente ligadas à baixa escolaridade e à depressão. Conclui-se que inúmeras variáveis interferem na resposta sexual feminina, sendo depressão e ansiedade especialmente nocivas à função sexual. Ademais, enquanto depressão é mais prejudicial nas primeiras fases da resposta sexual (desejo e excitação), ansiedade influencia principalmente a fase de orgasmo. / The present work proposes to (1) assess female sexual functioning, depression, and anxiety; (2) verify the association between female sexual dysfunction (FSD), depression, and anxiety; and (3) identify the variables associated with the sexual domains: desire, arousal, orgasm, and pain during intercourse. A group of 110 healthy women (age: 18-61, mean: 38.5 years) among those waiting for gynecological routine consultations at the Clinics Hospital of the Faculty of Medicine of the University of São Paulo (HCFMUSP) was randomly selected for this research. The patients were asked to fill questionnaires specifically developed for this work and validated instruments, such as the Female Sexual Quotient (FSQ), the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI-II), and the Beck Anxiety Inventory (BAI). The analysis of the responses show that 36 (32.7%) women present sexual desire inhibitions; 16 (14.5%) have arousal problems; 35 (31.8%) have orgasm difficulties; 31 (28.2%) report pain during intercourse; and 39 (35.5%) exhibit overall FSD. Depression and anxiety are present in 26 (23.6%) and 37 (33.6%) patients respectively. The data also reveal a significant relation between FSD, depression, and anxiety, in addition to identifying risk factors for the sexual domains. More specifically, sexual desire inhibition is associated to depression, anxiety, education level, body issues, masturbation, and sexual education; arousal is connected to depression, anxiety, age, education level, body issues, sex-related fears, and sexual education; orgasm difficulties is related to depression, anxiety, education level, body issues, sex-related fears, sex-related shame, masturbation, and sexual education; pain during intercourse is associated with depression, monetary income, education level, and sex education; and finally, the factors relevant to overall FSD are depression, anxiety, education level, body issues, sex-related fears, sex-related shame, and sexual education. Regression models were then used to identify the most significant variables for each domain, resulting in sexual desire being inhibited by the presence of depression; excitation levels being impaired by low education levels and the increase of age; ability to achieve orgasm being hindered by low education levels, anxiety, and sex-related fears; and pain during intercourse and overall FSD increasing with lower education levels and depression. In conclusion, numerous variables influence female sexual response, depression and anxiety being especially detrimental to sexual functioning. What is more, while depression is more harmful in the early stages of sexual response (desire and arousal), anxiety is the main influence on the orgasm phase

Sexuelle Dysfunktionen und sexuelle Zufriedenheit bei Patientinnen mit posttraumatischer Belastungsstörung / Sexual Dysfunctions and Sexual Satisfaction in Female PTSD Patients

Haase, Angelika, Boos, Anne, Schönfeld, Sabine, Hoyer, Jürgen 10 February 2014 (has links) (PDF)
Hintergrund: Sexuelle Dysfunktionen sind ein häufiges Problem bei Patientinnen mit posttraumatischer Belastungsstörung (PTB). Kaum untersucht ist, ob ein Zusammenhang zwischen der Art des Traumas (sexuell vs. nichtsexuell) und der Häufigkeit sexueller Dysfunktionen bzw. Zufriedenheit besteht und welche Rolle komorbide Depressionen dabei spielen. Zudem wurden verschiedene Störungsbilder (PTB, Angst, Depression) in Bezug auf sexuelle Funktions-/Zufriedenheitsbeeinträchtigungen vergleichend untersucht (klinische Spezifität). Patientinnen und Methoden: Nach der standardisierten klinischen Diagnostik wurden 351 ambulante Psychotherapiepatientinnen folgenden 3 Gruppen zugeteilt: Patientinnen mit PTB (n = 89), mit anderen Angststörungen (n = 157) und mit depressiven Störungen (n = 105). Informationen zur sexuellen Zufriedenheit und Funktionsfähigkeit wurden mit dem Kurzfragebogen für Sexualität (KFS) erhoben. Die Art des Traumas (sexuell vs. nichtsexuell) wurde per Interview erfasst; Depressivität mit dem Beck-Depressions-Inventar (BDI). Ergebnisse: Sexuell traumatisierte PTB-Patientinnen haben ein 4-fach höheres Risiko, Beeinträchtigungen der sexuellen Funktionsfähigkeit zu erleben als PTB-Patientinnen mit nichtsexuellem Trauma. Bei Vorliegen einer depressiven Störung zusätzlich zur PTB steigt das Risiko für sexuelle Dysfunktionen um das 3-fache gegenüber PTB-Patientinnen ohne komorbide Depression. Mit der sexuellen Zufriedenheit hängt die Art des Traumas hingegen nicht zusammen. Während drei Viertel der PTB- und Depressionspatientinnen sexuelle Dysfunktionen berichten, gilt dies nur für jede zweite Angstpatientin (außer PTB). Diskussion: Sowohl die Art des Traumas als auch komorbide Depressionen stehen im Zusammenhang mit sexuellen Dysfunktionen bei PTB-Patientinnen. Insbesondere bei Patientengruppen mit einem erhöhten Risiko für Beeinträchtigungen der sexuellen Funktionen ist es wichtig, die Thematik bei therapeutischen Interventionen zu berücksichtigen. / Background: Sexual dysfunctions are a common problem in female patients with posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). However, only few studies have investigated the incidence of sexual dysfunctions in PTSD patients accounting for the type of traumatisation (sexual vs non-sexual), the role of co-morbid depression as well as the comparison to other psychiatric disorders (clinical specification). Patients and Methods: In this study, 351 female outpatients were tested with a standardised clinical diagnostic instrument and assigned to the following 3 groups: patients with PTSD (n = 89), with other anxiety disorders (n = 157) and with depressive disorders (n = 105). Information about aspects of sexual satisfaction und sexual functioning was assessed by a short questionnaire (‘Kurzfragebogen für Sexualität’, KFS). The type of trauma was assessed by interview, and the level of depressive symptoms with the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Results: The risk of suffering from sexual dysfunctions was 4 times higher for sexually compared to non- sexually traumatised patients, and 3 times higher in the case of co-morbid depression compared to PTSD patients without co-morbid depression. Yet, there was no association between sexual satisfaction and type of trauma. Only half of the patients with anxiety disorder (except PTSD) suffer from sexual dysfunctions compared to 3 out of 4 patients with depression or PTSD. Discussion: Both the type of trauma and co-morbid depression are related to sexual dysfunction in patients with PTSD. Especially with patient groups that hold an increased risk of developing sexual dysfunctions, it is important to consider this topic during therapeutic interventions. / Dieser Beitrag ist mit Zustimmung des Rechteinhabers aufgrund einer (DFG-geförderten) Allianz- bzw.

Resposta sexual, disfunção sexual e qualidade de vida em mulheres obesas / Sexual response, sexual dysfunction, and quality of life in obese women

Regina Maria Volpato Bedone 05 February 2014 (has links)
Introdução: No Brasil, como em outros países, obesidade e disfunção sexual são consideradas problemas de saúde pública pela alta prevalência e por estarem relacionadas com hipertensão arterial, diabetes, doenças cardiovasculares, transtornos depressivos, outras morbidades e prejuízos na qualidade de vida dos indivíduos. Em geral, há poucos estudos sobre resposta sexual, obesidade e qualidade de vida em mulheres, e, na maioria deles, as pesquisas são realizadas com pacientes portadoras de doenças crônicas. Objetivos: Avaliar a resposta sexual, as disfunções sexuais e a qualidade de vida de mulheres obesas sem outras morbidades associadas e com parceiros não portadores de disfunção sexual. Métodos: Foram selecionadas 37 mulheres obesas (IMC = 30-39,9 Kg/m2) sem outras morbidades, com idade acima de 18 anos, não menopausadas, com parceiro funcional e relacionamento estável. Os parceiros foram avaliados pelo questionário QS-M. Considerando critérios para exclusão de doenças, as pacientes foram submetidas aos seguintes exames laboratoriais: glicose, colesterol e frações, triglicérides, TSH, prolactina, testosterona total, SHBG e testosterona livre. Também foram avaliadas por entrevista clínica e, posteriormente, pelos questionários QS-F, IWQOL-Lite, BDI e HAM-A. Resultados: Das 37 pacientes, 4 (10,8%) foram consideradas disfuncionais (QSF 60) e 33 (89,2%) apresentaram desempenho sexual satisfatório (QS-F 60). Dentre as disfunções sexuais, a diminuição do desejo sexual e a disfunção do orgasmo comprometeram 100% das pacientes; a disfunção de excitação 75%, o vaginismo 50% e a dispareunia 25%. Não houve correlação estatisticamente significativa entre o IMC e o QS-F (r=-0,12; p=0,470). O IWQOL-Lite total, com escore máximo de 155 pontos, variou de 31 a 116 pontos, com mediana de 60,0 pontos. Houve correlação estatisticamente significativa entre o QS-F e os domínios do IWQOL-Lite vida sexual, trabalho e o total. Verificou-se correlação estatisticamente significativa entre o IMC e a QV (r=-0,41; p=0,012). Ocorreu correlação negativa e estatisticamente significativa entre o QSF e o BDI (r= -0,37; p= 0,025), e o HAM-A (r=-0,39; p=0,016). Conclusões: Mulheres obesas sem outras morbidades mostraram um desempenho sexual satisfatório, e não houve correlação entre a obesidade e a presença de disfunção sexual. O melhor desempenho sexual foi associado com a melhor qualidade de vida. Quanto mais obesas, pior a qualidade de vida das pacientes. Quanto melhor o desempenho sexual, menor a possibilidade de depressão e ansiedade / Introduction: In Brazil, as in other countries, obesity and sexual dysfunction are considered public health problems because of their high prevalence and association with high blood pressure, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depressive disorders, other morbidities, and impaired patient quality of life (QoL). In general, there are few studies on sexual response, obesity, and QoL in women, and in most of these studies, assessments are conducted with patients with chronic diseases. Aims: To assess sexual response, sexual dysfunction, and QoL of obese women without other associated morbidities and partners without sexual dysfunction. Methods: We selected 37 non-menopausal, obese women (body mass index [BMI] = 30-39.9 Kg/m2) without comorbidities, aged > 18 years, with functional partners and stable relationship. The partners were assessed by the SQ-M. Considering the disease exclusion criteria, the patients underwent the following laboratory tests: glucose, cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein, triglycerides, thyroid-stimulating hormone, prolactin, total testosterone, sex hormone-binding globulin, and free testosterone. They were also assessed in a clinical interview and subsequently, by the Sexual Quotient-Female Version (SQ-F), Impact of Weight on the Quality of Life (IWQOL)-Lite, Beck Depression Inventory (BDI), and Hamilton Anxiety Rating Scale (HAM-A) questionnaires. Results: Of the 37 patients, 4 (10.8%) were considered to have sexual dysfunction (SQ-F60), and 33 (89.2%) had satisfactory sexual performance (SQ-F60). Among those with sexual dysfunction, all patients experienced decreased sexual desire and orgasm dysfunction, 75% experienced arousal dysfunction, 50 % experienced vaginismus, and 25 % experienced dyspareunia. No statistically significant correlation was noted between BMI and SQF (r= -0.12; p = 0.470). The total IWQOL-Lite, with a maximum score of 155 points, ranged from 31 to 116 points, with a median of 60.0 points. A statistically significant correlation was observed between the sex life, work, and total domains of the SQ-F and IWQOL-Lite questionnaires, and between BMI and QoL (r = -0.41; p = 0.012). A statistically significant negative correlation was noted between the SQ-F and BDI (r = -0.37, p = 0.025) and HAM-A (r = -0.39, p = 0.016) results. Conclusions: Obese women without comorbidities showed satisfactory sexual performance; no correlation was found between obesity and sexual dysfunction. The best sexual performance was associated with a better QoL. Increase in obesity was associated with a deteriorated QoL of patients. Superior sexual performance was found to be associated with a low possibility of depression and anxiety

A alteração da função sexual acontece devido às mudanças no processo neurofisiológico, mas fatores psicossociais podem estar associados à disfunção. A perda da realização sexual, quando comparada à perda de autonomia, pode parecer uma consequência minoritária da lesão medular. No entanto, a função sexual é um importante componente de saúde, com evidências de que a redução da função e satisfação sexual resultam em baixa qualidade de vida, além de um fator fundamental na motivação, bem estar e satisfação. Apesar da relevância, o desempenho sexual após lesão medular ainda é um tema pouco abordado e bastante negligenciado durante o processo de reabilitação, além de serem escassos os estudos que verificam associações mais aprofundadas sobre a função erétil e os demais componentes da função sexual, fatores explicativos e preditivos de disfunção. OBJETIVO: avaliar a função sexual de homens com lesão medular traumática e analisar a associação da disfunção com fatores fisiológicos e não fisiológicos. MATERIAIS E MÉTODOS: Estudo observacional (CCAE 41221414.5.0000.5208) realizado com 45 homens, faixa etária entre 18 a 60 anos, com lesão medular traumática e vida sexual ativa. A função sexual foi avaliada pelo Índice Internacional de Função Erétil (IIFE) e nível e grau da lesão foram determinados seguindo as diretrizes da International Standards for Neurological Examination and Functional Classification of Spinal Cord Injury. Os dados foram coletados após seis meses da lesão, em hospitais de referência. Foram aplicadas técnicas de estatística descritiva e análise bivariada e multivariada, através de regressão logística ajustada para observar a associação entre a função sexual e fatores explicativos de disfunção, com nível de significância de 0,05. RESULTADOS: Participaram do estudo 45 indivíduos com idades entre 18 e 56 anos (média 34,0; IC 31,5 – 37,1) e tempo de lesão médio de 7,5 anos (IC 5,2 – 9,9). Lesões incompletas acima do segmento medular L2 foram as mais frequentes (66,7%). Ao analisar os domínios do IIFE, não foi observada associação entre disfunção sexual e complexidade da lesão, porém, os pacientes com lesões completas foram os que apresentaram mais grave disfunção orgástica (86,7%) e de satisfação (86,7%). Ao analisar a associação entre fatores explicativos para disfunção, percebeu-se que a presença parceira fixa é um fator protetor (OR: 0,22; IC95%:0,05-0,92) para disfunção erétil. Desejo sexual tem associação com parceira fixa (OR: 0,20; IC95%:0,04-0,84), masturbação (OR: 0,16; IC95%:0,04-0,67) e relação sexual no último mês (OR: 0,13; IC95%:0,01-0,92). Ejaculação presente (OR: 0,01; IC95%:0,00-0,15) foi considerado um fator protetor para disfunção orgástica, enquanto disfunção erétil (OR: 15,7; IC95%:1,38-178,58), um fator de risco. Ereção psicogênica (OR: 0,07; IC95%:0,01-0,69), frequência mensal de relação sexual (OR: 11,3; IC95%:2,0-62,8) e disfunção orgástica (OR: 7,1; IC95%:1,1-44,8) tem associação com satisfação. CONCLUSÃO: a resposta sexual altera-se após a lesão medular, tendo a função orgástica como a mais acometida, caracterizando o domínio que apresentou maior e mais grave disfunção. Fatores como presença de parceira fixa, ejaculação e masturbação são fatores de proteção para disfunção sexual. Disfunção erétil, orgástica e relações sexuais infrequentes são preditores de disfunção. / In addition to the motor and sensory loss, urinary tract and sexual function are also affected by spinal cord injury, and sexual dysfunction one of the most common problems in these patients and its severity depends on the level and complexity of the injury. The change in sexual function occurs due to changes in neurophysiological process, but psychosocial factors may be associated with dysfunction. The loss of sexual fulfillment, compared to a loss of autonomy, it may seem a minor consequence of spinal cord injury. However, sexual function is a major health component, with evidence that the reduction of sexual function and satisfaction resulting in lower quality of life, and a key factor in motivation and satisfaction welfare. Despite the relevance, sexual performance after spinal cord injury is still somewhat topic and largely neglected during the rehabilitation process, and few studies that verify deeper associations of erectile function and other sexual function, explanatory factors and predictive dysfunction. AIMS: To evaluate the sexual function of men with spinal cord injury and to analyze the association of the disorder with physiological and non-physiological factors. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Observational study (CEAC 41221414.5.0000.5208) conducted with 45 men, aged 18 to 60 years, with spinal cord injury and active sex life. Sexual function was assessed by the International Index of Erectile Function (IIEF) and level and degree of injury were determined following the guidelines of the International Standards for Neurological and Functional Examination Classi fi cation of Spinal Cord Injury. Data were collected after six months of injury in referral hospitals. Descriptive statistical techniques were applied and bivariate and multivariate analysis using logistic regression adjusted to observe the association between sexual function and explanatory factors of dysfunction, with a 0.05 significance level. RESULTS: The study included 45 subjects aged between 18 and 56 years, mean 34.0 (CI 31.5 to 37.1) and average injury time in years 7.5 (CI 5.2 to 9.9). incomplete lesions above the spinal segment L2 were the most common (66.7%). By analyzing the domains of IIEF, there was no association between sexual dysfunction and complexity of the injury, however, patients with complete injuries were those with more severe orgasmic dysfunction (86.7%) and satisfaction (86.7%). When analyzing the association between explanatory factors for dysfunction, it was realized that a primary partner presence is a protective factor (OR: 0.22; 95% CI: .05-.92) for erectile dysfunction. sexual desire is associated with a steady partner (OR: 0.20; 95% CI: 0.04 to 0.84), masturbation (OR: 0.16; 95% CI: 0.04 to 0.67) and sexual intercourse in the last month (OR: 0.13; 95% CI: 0.01 to 0.92). This ejaculation (OR: 0.01; 95% CI: .00-.15) was considered a protective factor for orgasmic dysfunction as erectile dysfunction (OR: 15.7; 95% CI: 1.38 to 178.58), a risk factor. psychogenic erection (OR: 0.07; 95% CI: 0.01 to 0.69), monthly frequency of intercourse (OR: 11.3; 95% CI: 2.0 to 62.8) and orgasmic dysfunction (OR: 7.1; 95% CI: 1.1 to 44.8) is associated with satisfaction. CONCLUSION: the sexual response changes after spinal cord injury, and orgasmic function as the most affected, featuring the area with the highest and most severe dysfunction. Factors such as the presence of fixed partner, ejaculation and masturbation are protective factors for sexual dysfunction. erectile dysfunction, orgasmic and infrequent sex dysfunction are predictors.
