Abstract:

Purpose: In the current literature there is little information on the evaluation of the sexual sphere in women affected by a Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). The aim is to assess female sexual dysfunction and describe the factors that appear most frequently along in this group of women.
Methods: Prospective observational cohort study made up of patients who require hospital admission to be treated during an acute process of PID by analyzing their degree of female sexual dysfunction. To study the sexual function in a group of female patients admitted in a hospital because of a PID.
Results: Based on the FSFI scoring criteria, we can consider that 75% of our studied population suffers from sexual dysfunction, where the lowest score was 2 points, while the highest was 28.3.
Severe PID may cause a great psychological and physical impact in their sexual life.
It should be noted that one of the greatest reinforcements is that it is the first study to analyze sexual function in patients affected by a severe PID. While one of the major limitations of the study is the sample size due to the short recruitment time of the sample.
Conclusion: Female Sexual Dysfunction (FSD) prevalence in women admitted for severe PID is much higher than the percentage described in general women population. The study of the FSD continues to be a pending subject worldwide, becoming really important the improvement of its diagnostic, prevention and treatment to face properly this prevalent and underdiagnosed pathology.
