study determined the prevalence,
domain, and predictors of sexual dysfunction among 222 infertile women before and
after Diagnosis of infertility in Ife East Senatorial district, Nigeria. They were interviewed using interviewer-administered questionnaire and Female Sexual Function Index
assessment tool. Information about their sexual functions after marriage and before
the couple started having difficulty in getting pregnant were obtained and compared
with sexual functions after Diagnosis of infertility. Data management was done using
SPSS Version22 and STATA 12. The Chi-square test was used to test associations.
P-value of was set <0.05. Before infertility diagnosis,
the prevalence of sexual dysfunction was 23.9%. After infertility diagnosis, this
increased to 57.2%, P<0.001. The mean scores of female sexual function index
for infertile patients were 29.57 ±5.10 before the
infertility diagnosis but reduced to 24.42 ± 5.86 after infertility
diagnosis P <0.001. The domain scores reduced after Diagnosis of infertility,
and it shows statistical significance at P<0.001. Significant predictors at
multivariate analysis include increasing maternal age, increasing duration of infertility,
Hausa /Fulani tribe, and female genital mutilation. Infertility increases the prevalence
of female sexual dysfunction and reduces the domain scores of sexual functions.
