Sexual dysfunction in Russia: risk factors for women
Urologiia (Moscow, Russia : 1999)
The aim of the study was to identify the most important risk factors in genesis of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) using a Russian modification of the female sexual function index (FSFI) questionnaires and original questionnaires for Russian women. A total of 540 women aged 18-75 years living in the South of Russia entered the trial. They were divided into 4 groups: group 1--18-30 year old women (n = 250), group 2--premenopausal women (n = 213), group 3--women with 5 year and less menopause (n = 39), group 4--women with 5 year and longer menopause. Age, stress and menopause were identified to be significant risk factors of FSD. The other factors were not significant. A mathematical model was designed and the coefficient of each risk factor was estimated for determination of individual probability to develop FSD in Russian women.
