INTRODUCTION: Sexuality usually decreases during pregnancy.
AIMS: To evaluate sexual behavior during pregnancy, comparing two groups. One had sexual education and the other had none.
METHODS: After randomizing two groups of pregnant women, they completed self-administered questionnaires regarding attitudes and sexual behavior before and during pregnancy. Sexual education was provided in one group and a second self-administered questionnaire was completed 12 weeks later. Responses were summarized using descriptive statistics. Comparison of change of sexual behavior between two groups was analyzed using chi-square and student t-tests.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The change in frequency of coitus during pregnancy was compared between the sexual education group and the noneducation group.
RESULTS: There was no statistically difference in changes of sexual behavior between the two groups. There was a reduction in frequency of coitus (90.6% vs. 94.9%, P>0.05) between the nonsexual education group and the sexual education group and no statistically significant change in mean reduction of sexual desire (8.9 vs. 4.4, P>0.05), sexual arousal (14.3 vs. 13.1, P>0.05), satisfaction from coitus (15.4 vs. 7.2, P>0.05), and orgasm from coitus (12.3 vs. 12.3, P>0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: The change of sexual behavior during pregnancy in the sexual education group was not different from that in the nonsexual education group.
