Abstract

We hypothesized that the application of Rosen’s Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI©) in a Spanish population differs from the results published in the United States population.

Material and methods: We conducted an observational epidemiological study of female sexual function in the population of Castilla y Leon (Spanish region) involving 4500 women and we determined their “normality” in order to achieve nine diagnostic cut-off points for female sexual dysfunction for our community overall and by decade of age.

Results: We developed a new, general specific cut-off point to diagnose sexual dysfunction in our female population, FSFI© ≤ 21.7; bearing in mind that female sexual dysfunction is age-dependant, we obtained new cut-off points for the diagnosis of female sexual dysfunction by decade of age.

Conclusion: Given the different sociocultural characteristics of populations, we must not assume certain diagnostic sexual dysfunction parameters as generalized worldwide standards.
