INTRODUCTION AND HYPOTHESIS: This study aimed to identify the nature, prevalence, and factors associated with female sexual disorders (FSD). METHODS: We assessed 150 women using the following instruments: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual IV (DSM IV), Sexual Disorders, Female Sexual Function Index, World Health Organization Quality of Life BREF (WHOQOL-BREF), an abbreviated version of the WHOQOL-100, and a pro forma to record sociodemographic and clinical details. Descriptive statistics were calculated and multivariable logistic regression models used to adjust for confounders. RESULTS: A third of the 150 women met DSM IV criteria for FSD. The common disorders were hypoactive desire (16.67 %) and arousal (14.67) and orgasmic disorders (18 %). Women with any DSM IV diagnosis of sexual disorder had a poorer QOL (t = -3.1; df = 148; p = 0.002) in general and had impaired social relationships (t = -3.5; df = 148; p = 0.001) and lower environmental scores (t = -2.8; df = 148; p = 0.005) in particular. CONCLUSIONS: A minority of women reported sexual dysfunction. Hypoactive desire and arousal and orgasmic disorders were the common conditions. The presence of dysfunction was associated with poor QOL.
