English abstract
Sexual function in men with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) is usually affected to a greater or lesser extent, depending on the type of injury and physiological prerequisites. Social contexts and psychological factors are other aspects that affect sexual function. Sexual dysfunction can lead to an impaired quality of life, depression and other illnesses. Aim: To study reported experiences of sexual function in men with SCI who have participated in The Nordic Spinal Injury Registry (NSCIR) five years follow-up. Design: Quantitative method consisting of a register study based on secondary data. Setting: Information collected from units at Linköping and Umeå, which are two of Sweden's six units of the County Councils' Centers for Spinal Cord Injuries. Sample: Eighty-two men with SCI between ages 19-81 years (mean age: 48 years). Method: A Study of NSCIR´s five years follow-ups regarding the questionnaires for Sexual function and Socio-demographic. Results: Fifty-nine percent (34/58) reported that sexual function was unsatisfactory in relation to intercourse. Almost 80% (55/69) reported experiencing sexual desire after injury. Fifty-four percent (38/70) reported engaging in sexual activity. Conclusions: The results are useful in the aim of developing Spinal Cord Injury care to optimize sexual rehabilitation for men with SCI and to provide a basis for confident and satisfactory sexuality and a better quality of life.
