Objectives: To investigate sexual dysfunction in married, literate females diagnosed with migraine.
Methods: Twenty-two literate, married female patients with migraine presenting to our outpatient clinic (Ankara) were asked to complete the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) questionnaire. Age, body mass index (BMI), employment status, and responses to FSFI questionnaire were analyzed using the Chi-square test to check whether they were correlated with total FSFI scores.
Results: The mean age of females was 30.9±5.7 years, and their mean FSFI score was 27.5±7.5. FSFI scores were significantly associated with employment status and BMI (p<0.05).
Conclusion: Based on FSFI, there was no significant difference in the severity of sexual dysfunction among female patients with migraine compared with healthy subjects in previous population-based studies.
