Methods: The study was an analytical descriptive design with a cross-sectional approach. Thirty-seven
were respondents selected by consecutive sampling. Data were collected using demographic, ASEX scale
questionnaires, and questionnaire of risk factors for sexual dysfunction, and Analyzed using chi-square and
Results: The results show that there were correlations among fear to performance (p=0.00;RR=14.66),
inadequate counseling (p=0.00;RR=33.33), alcohol consumption (p=0.01;RR=10.12), and biological causes
(p=0.00;RR=27.14) with prevalence of sexual dysfunction in stoma patients. The results also show that
there was not significant correlation among psychosexual trauma (p=0.56;RR=0.37) and socio-cultural
factors (p=0.12;RR=4.26). The factors which was most significantly correlated with the prevalence of
sexual dysfunction in stoma patients were inadequate counseling (p=0.03;OR=20.84 95% CI=1.25-347.47),
alcohol consumption (p=0.04;OR=14.66 95% CI=1.05-204.30), and biological factors (p=0.04;OR=19.45
Conclusion: The sexual dysfunction in stoma patients is possibly influenced by a variety of factors, the
selection of the right intervention plays a very important role to minimize the risks for sexual dysfunction in
stoma patients so that the nursing care quality will be improved to be better.
