Abstract

Objective: To determine the prevalence of dyspareunia among women aged 25-54 and its associated risk factors. Material and methods: A cross-sectional population-based study was carried out in the city of Hermosillo, Sonora and data from 1 183 sexually active women were analyzed. A multiple logistic regression was computed to analyze the association between dyspareunia and sociodemographic characteristics, medical conditions and sexual violence. Results: The 12-month prevalence of dyspareunia was estimated to be 12.3% (95% CI 10.5, 14.4). After adjustment for working conditions, dyspareunia was associated with younger ages (25-34 years), history of sexually transmitted diseases/pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic urinary tract infections, colitis and history of sexual violence. Conclusion: Increased attention to this condition by reproductive health programs and primary care services is urgently needed in Mexico.
