SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION IN WOMEN WITH PARKINSON'S DISEASE

 CLICK HERE FOR A PRINTABLE OR WHITE BACKGROUND VERSION OF THIS ARTICLE

In women with Parkinson's Disease there can be a profound impairment in sexual arousal, behaviour, orgasm, sexual satisfaction and sex drive. The objectives of this study were to assess the level of sexual function in women with Parkinson's Disease, and the description of sexual dysfunctions.

Women with Parkinson's Disease were assessed over a broad age range of 40 to 89 years.According to the Female Sexual Function Index, sexual dysfunction was present in 87% of women with Parkinson's Disease, but this was not a lot more than the dysfunction that occurred in 79% of women who did not have Parkinson's Disease. However, according to the Sexual Dysfunction Inventory the difference was far greater, with 57% of women with Parkinson's Disease having sexual dysfunction, and only 22% of women who did not have Parkinson's Disease.

Sexual dysfunction was found to be more prevalent in women with Parkinson's Disease and is predicted by older age and the severity of depressive symptoms.
