Resumen

Background: It is estimated that between 25-50% of women will suffer from a pelvic floor disorder during their lifetime. Sexual function is a complex and multidimensional concept. It has been suggested that to greater symptoms of pelvic floor disorders, women have major problems in sexual response. Objective: To describe the sexual function of a group of women with any pelvic floor disorder in a public hospital of Santiago, Chile. Method: A descriptive study of 195 women diagnosed with pelvic floor disorders using a questionnaire that included assessment of sociodemographic and sexual function instrument PISQ-12. For the analysis used measures of central tendency and dispersion. Results: 73.7% of referred women have some degree of dissatisfaction with their current sex life mainly affecting the area of sexual desire. Within the limitations in sexual intercourse reported are: less intense orgasms (70.5%), dyspareunia (89.5%), erectile dysfunction (40%) and premature ejaculation (47.4%) in their partners. Conclusion: Women report levels of dissatisfaction with their sex life, decreased sexual desire, pain during intercourse and decreased intensity of orgasm. It is important to incorporate in the care of these women a systematic assessment of sexual function focusing not only on the female sexual response, but also identifying those limitations of women and couples that may be influencing women's sexual satisfaction.
