Abstract:   (35 Views)
Introduction: Pregnancy is one of the most important stages of a woman’s life. Although this is a pleasant period for most women, it is often considered as a stressful period accompanied by physiological and psychological changes. This study aimed to examine pregnant women’s attitude towards sexual desire and its relationship with quality of life and rumination in the last trimester of pregnancy.
Methods: The statistical population of this descriptive correlational study included all pregnant women in the last trimester of pregnancy in Semnan province, Iran. A total of 280 women were selected using a random sampling method. Data were collected using the Index of Sexual Desire, Rumination Scale, and Quality of Life Questionnaire. The data were analyzed by SPSS ver. 11.5 using simultaneous regression analysis.
Results: The results showed that rumination was significantly and negatively predicted by sexual desire. Moreover, the subscales of physical functioning, emotional problems, and general health were positively and significantly predicted by sexual desire. However, sexual desire could not significantly predict other subscales of quality of life, namely fatigue or vitality, emotional health, social functioning, pain, and physical health status.
Conclusion: Our finding revealed that, if guided and employed properly, sexual desire during pregnancy can moderate stress.
