Abstract

This study evaluates the prevalence of female sexual dysfunctions among Kurdish women. Participants in the study were 196 women between 15 and 55 years of age who attended the gynecological clinic of Be'sat Hospital in Sanandaj Province, Iran. The authors collected relevant data using the Female Sexual Function Index. The mean score was 22.71 (SD = 5). Using a cutoff score of 26.55, the authors found that 151 women (77) had some sexual dysfunction. Scores declined as patients age increased; further, an older age at marriage was associated with a higher score. This study, the first about sexual dysfunctions in Kurdish society, shows that sexual dysfunctions are prevalent among women of this ethnicity. Clinicians should complete further studies to assess the factors contributing to this phenomenon. © 2014 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
