URRUTIA S, María Teresa et al. A predictive model for the quality of sexual life in hysterectomized women. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2007, vol.135, n.3, pp.317-325. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0034-98872007000300006.

Background: The effects of hysterectomy on sexuality has been extensively studied. Aim: To establish a model to predict the quality of sexual life in hysterectomized women, six months after surgery. Material and Methods: Analytical, longitudinal and prospective study of 90 hysterectomized women aged 45±7 years. Two structured interviews at the time of surgery and six months later were carried out to determine the characteristics of sexuality and communication within the couple. Results: In the two interviews, communication and the quality of sexual life were described as "good" in 72 and 77% of women, respectively (NS). The variables that had a 40% influence on the quality of sexual life sixth months after surgery, were oophorectomy status, the presence of orgasm, the characteristics of communication and the basal sexuality with the couple. Conclusions: The sexuality of the hysterectomized women will depend, on a great extent, of pre-surgical variables. Therefore, it is important to consider these variables for the education of hysterectomized women
