Introduction: Several studies have shown that sexuality is an important aspect of life. Nevertheless, sexual
matters are only rarely discussed between patients and doctors. Other studies have suggested that women
undergoing fertility treatment compose a group of patients with low satisfaction in their sexual life.
Aim: To investigate how women at a fertility clinic desire and experience communication about sexual matters
with doctors and to investigate the sexual function of these women.
Methods: A cross-sectional self-administered questionnaire survey of women attending a Danish fertility clinic
over 4 months was performed. Descriptive statistics were calculated and presented as frequencies.
Main Outcome Measure: Communication about sexual matters with doctors included the women’s comfort,
preferred and actual frequency of discussion, and initiation of the conversation. Sexual function included
participants’ sexuality during the past year including certain sexual difficulties.
Results: Of the 201 participating women in the survey, most felt comfortable discussing sexual matters with
doctors and preferred gynecologists for such discussions. There was a greater desire for communication than what
was actually experienced by the women, and most wanted to initiate the conversation themselves. The women
were less satisfied with their sexual life compared with a national control group, and they experienced sexual
difficulties more often.
Conclusion: There is an unmet desire of women in fertility treatment for discussing sexual matters, and greater
communication on this subject needs to be clinically implemented. Eldridge KE, Giraldi A. Communication
