JOFRE R., Romy; SAEZ C., Katia  y  CID A., Marcela. Caracterización del deseo sexual en mujeres climatéricas de un centro de salud rural. Rev. chil. obstet. ginecol. [online]. 2017, vol.82, n.5, pp.515-525. ISSN 0048-766X.


To characterize the sexual desire in climacteric women of a rural health center.


Descriptive - transversal non - exploratory study, comprising women between 45 and 64 years old who are controlled at a Rural CESFAM, 2016. The sample was 146 women who answered a self - administered survey, including the M & J inhibited sex drive test. The data were analyzed with the statistical software SPSS version 22.0.


A total of 146 climacteric women were surveyed, with a mean age of 51.8 years, of which 64.4% had had their menopause.

Of the respondents, only 19.9% showed inhibition of sexual desire.

Inhibition of sexual desire occurred more frequently in women who had on average 29.3 years with their partners, those with chronic morbidity, and those who recognized having somatic, psychological and urogenital symptoms associated with menopause.


In the evaluation of sexual desire, it should be considered that there are several factors that influence it and also a wide range of instruments that aim to measure it.

Most rural climateric users (65.1%) do not present inhibition of sexual desire.

There are factors that can encourage and cause inhibition of sexual desire, while others can help prevent it from appearing. It is essential to know and manage these factors, in order to help climacteric women to have a better quality of life.

Palabras clave : climacteric; sexual desire; sexual dysfunction; sexual response.
