Introduction: Polycystic ovary syndrome is a common disorder and its clinical symptoms can affect sexual function. It seems that the effect of treatment on the sexual satisfaction of these patients has not been studied so far. This study was designed to investigate the effect of treatment on the sexual satisfaction of women with PCOD.
Materials and Methods: In the present cross-sectional descriptive-analytic study, 100 patients with polycystic ovaries including two treated and non-treated groups, who referred to the endocrinology clinic of Kosar Hospital in Semnan, were studied.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of the score of sexual satisfaction was 12.62 ± 9.33, and there was no significant relationship between treatment and sexual satisfaction, as well as age, marriage, duration of diagnosis of the disease affecting the sexual satisfaction of patients (p <0/05). In addition, there was no significant relationship between marital satisfaction and age, also, there was no significant relationship with the increase in educational qualification, occupation of patients and their place of residence.
Conclusion: Considering the importance of sexual satisfaction in women, which helps to strengthen the foundation of the family, and due to the lack of a significant relationship between treatment and sexual satisfaction, treatment does not seem vital to increase sexual satisfaction and should not be considered as a method to increase sexual satisfaction, and it should only be used to improve fertility.
Key words: Polycystic ovary syndrome, Sexual satisfaction
