Abstract

Objective To determine the prevalence and risk factors of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) among healthcare personnel in selected healthcare facilities in Malaysia. Methods This was a cross-sectional study carried out at three large healthcare facilities that were selected by convenience sampling. Within each facility, stratified random sampling was used to select suitable candidates to participate in the study (n = 201). Validated questionnaires were used to assess depression, anxiety, sexual function in women and erectile dysfunction (ED) in their partners. Results The prevalence of FSD was 5.5%. Women with sexual dysfunction were more likely to be married longer (OR = 4.08; 95% CI; 1.15-4.50), had lower frequency of sexual intercourse (OR = 5.00; 95% C; 1.05-23.76) and had a spouse with ED (OR = 24.35; 95% CI; 4.55-130.37). Multivariate analysis showed that ED was the strongest predictor for FSD (AOR = 27.30; 95% CI; 4.706-159.08). Conclusion One in eighteen female healthcare personnel suffered from FSD and presence of ED in the partner strongly impacted her sexual function, negatively. The findings highlight the importance of including the male partner in clinical assessment of FSD.
