Background and purpose: Sexual satisfaction is a pleased experience or satisfaction of an individual or a couple during any stage of sexual intercourse including libido, arousal and orgasm that could change during pregnancy due to multiple physical or psychiatric changes. This study aimed at investigating the level of sexual satisfaction in pregnant women with gestational diabetes. Materials and methods: We conducted a cross-sectional study in which 150 pregnant women attending Sayyad-e-Shirazi Hospital in Gorgan, Iran, were recruited. Using non-randomized convenience sampling they were classified into two groups: getational diabetes group and non-diabetic control group. Two questionnaires were administered including ENRICH Marital Satisfaction Scale consisting of 35-items (previously validated in Iran) and Female Sexual Function Index-FSFI. Results: The mean scores for sexual satisfaction according to ENRICH Marital Satisfaction Scale and FSFI were 61 ±10 (moderate to high) and 24±4, respectively, which the latter represented a poor sexual function. Sexual satisfaction level was found to be higher in those aged 25-30 years old but this difference was not statistically significant. Conclusion: Our results showed no significant difference between diabetic pregnant women and non-diabetics in sexual satisfaction. But sexual function was affected in pregnant diabetic women that could be due to the coincidence of pregnancy and diabetes. © 2016, Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences. All rights reserved.
