INTRODUCTION: Our aim was to investigate the frequency of sexual dysfunction in type 2 diabetic

METHODS: 329 married women were included in the study. 213 of these women were diabetic
and 116 were not diabetic. All of them filled the Female Sexual Function Index(FSFI). This questionnaire consists of 6 parts: Desire, arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain. Cases’' age, menopause status, number of children, income status, smoking were recorded.

RESULTS: Sexual functions were impaired in 267 (81.9%) of all cases; in 170 (79.8%) diabetic cases and 97 (85.8%) non-diabetic cases. Lumbrication(p = 0.000) and orgasm(p = 0.003) were significantly impaired in diabetics. There was significant relationship between sexual dysfunction and age(In diabetics p=0.000 and in non-diabetics p=0.000). Sexual dysfunction was 85.1% in diabetic women in menopause and 74.5% in diabetic women premenopause (p = 0.052). There was a significant relationship between the number of children and lumbrication(p = 0.042), orgasm(p = 0.036) in all cases; and desire (p = 0.04), orgasm (p = 0.007) in diabetic patients. Lumbrication(p = 0.044) and orgasm(p = 0.008) were significantly impaired in smokers.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Sexual dysfunction was high in both type 2 diabetic women and the control group. Sexual dysfunction in diabetic women was evident in the field of lumbrication and orgasm. Sexual dysfunction increased with age, menopause. As the number of children increased, sexual dysfunction was evident in the field of desire, lumbrication and orgasm.

Keywords: Type 2 diabetes, women, sexual dysfunction.
