AbstractIntroduction. Sexual dysfunction is a serious public health problem that affects women's quality of life. However, there is very little epidemiological data on its incidence in Hong Kong Chinese women. Aim. To estimate the prevalence of, and risk factors associated with sexual dysfunction among young and middle-aged women in Hong Kong. Methods. The study was part of the ninth Knowledge, Attitude, and Practice survey conducted by the Family Planning Association of Hong Kong in 2007. The dataset comprised 1,510 face-to-face interviews with Hong Kong Chinese women aged 19-49 living in the community. Main Outcome Measure. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition classification of sexual dysfunction was used to measure female sexual dysfunction (FSD). Results. At least one form of FSD was reported by 37.9% of the sample. Multivariate analysis showed that having sought medical help for sexual problems (odds ratio [OR]=4.20), having a partner with erectile dysfunction (OR=2.44) and premature ejaculation (OR=2.56), perceiving sex as unimportant to marriage (OR=1.57), and reporting marital dissatisfaction (OR=1.45) were all significant risk factors for FSD and its specific components among the sample. However, having liberal attitudes to sex (OR=0.63) was a protective factor. Conclusion. The prevalence of FSD is lower among Hong Kong Chinese young and middle-aged women than in the United States and some Asian countries. Factors contributing to the risk of FSD span the domains of sexual experience, attitudes to sex, and relationship factors. These findings suggest future directions for the delivery of services addressing the prevention and treatment of FSD. Zhang H and Yip PSF.
