Abstract

Introduction: Lack of sexual satisfaction and lack of sexual self-efficacy are common ‎problems in women, affecting the quality of marital life. The present study was ‎conducted with the aim of evaluating the effect of vitamin D on sexual satisfaction and ‎self-efficacy in women of reproductive age.‎ Methods: This clinical trial study was conducted on 102 women with sexual ‎dysfunction and vitamin D level less than 30 ng / ml referring to health centers ‎affiliated to Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences in Ahwaz in 2018. The ‎research tools included Demographic Characteristics Questionnaire, Beck Depression ‎Questionnaire, Larsson Sexual Satisfaction Questionnaire, and Sexual Self-efficacy ‎Questionnaire. The research participants were randomly assigned into two groups of ‎experimental and control (each group contained 51 people). The experimental group ‎received oral vitamin D supplement in a dose of 1000 units per day and the control ‎group received placebo (for 12 weeks). After the completion of the study, all the ‎research samples completed the sexual satisfaction and sexual self-efficacy ‎questionnaires and the levels of vitamin D were measured. Data were analyzed using ‎Chi-Square test, independent t-test and SPSS 22 software. P value less than 0.05 was ‎considered significant.‎ Results: The mean score of sexual satisfaction and sexual self-efficacy was higher in ‎the experimental group than that in the control group after the intervention, and this ‎difference was statistically significant (p <0.001). Conclusion: Vitamin D supplement increases sexual satisfaction and self-efficacy in ‎women of reproductive age‎‎‎‎‎‎‎.
