This study aims to evaluate the prevalence of female sexual dysfunctions (FSD) and associated factors in young women attending a healthcare degree course. Sexual function and sexual discomfort of 187 young college women were assessed by The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and the Female Sexual Distress Scale-Revised (FSDS-R). A total of 23% of participants reported FSD, and the most affected area was pain, followed by orgasm and lubrication, arousal, desire, and satisfaction. This study provides valuable insights into the sexual behavior of young women in Brazil, including the number of lifetime sexual partners, duration of relationships, type of sexual activities and their frequency, sexual orientation, use of antidepressant, and contraceptives methods.

Abstract

This study aims to evaluate the prevalence of female sexual dysfunctions (FSD) and associated factors in young women attending a healthcare degree course. Sexual function and sexual discomfort of 187 young college women were assessed by The Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and the Female Sexual Distress Scale-Revised (FSDS-R). A total of 23% of participants reported FSD, and the most affected area was pain, followed by orgasm and lubrication, arousal, desire, and satisfaction. This study provides valuable insights into the sexual behavior of young women in Brazil, including the number of lifetime sexual partners, duration of relationships, type of sexual activities and their frequency, sexual orientation, use of antidepressant, and contraceptives methods.
