Objective: Commonly used methods for preventing pregnancy in Turkey are withdrawal (30%), intrauterine device (27.2%), tube ligation (16.7%), condom (15.2), injection (8.9%), and combined oral contraceptive (1.9%). Protection from pregnancy is one of the most important factors affecting women's health. One of the preferred methods to protect against pregnancy is the 16.7% choice of tube ligation. Tube ligation is used as a contraceptive method but this method has some undesirable consequences. Our aim in this study is to investigate whether tubal ligation has effect on sexually dysfunctional and it is related to the process.
Material method: We included in our study 161 patients using tubal ligation and 77 non-prevention methods. We recorded the demographic characteristics of these patients. We applied the fsfi scale. This questionnaire is a scale of sexual function assessment consisting of 19 questions evaluating sexual functions.
Result: We did not find any difference in the total fsfi (female sexual function index) score between the patients who underwent tubal ligation and those who did not. However, we found a significant decrease in sexual desire and satisfaction in the tubal ligation group. In the subgroup analyzes of the fsfi score, results indicate that the correlation bonds with the subgroups of the tubal ligation group was deteriorated.
Conclusion: Tubal ligation is a preferred method for contraception target, and various studies related to the effects on health have been made. Also, this study determined that tubal ligation has no effect on total fsfi scores. However, subgroup work seemed to have an effect on demand and satisfaction. In addition all, the duration of tubal ligation didn’t have any effect on sexual function.
