Abstract

Material and Methods: In this correlation study, 200 married women nurses working in public and military hospitals in Tehran were selected by multistage sampling method. Fisher’s body image questionnaire and female sexual function index were used for data elicitation. Lastly,  190 questionnaires were fully answered and considered for the analyses.

Results: Body satisfaction positively and significantly correlates with desirable sexual function  (r = 0.156, P = .002). Increasing body image scores can increase sexual function in married women nurses.

Conclusion: Body image can predict a woman nurse’s sexual function. So, better sexual function can be achieved by improving body image in married women nurses.
