Lien entre satisfaction sexuelle, ajustement dyadique et émoussement affectif, chez les personnes souffrant de schizophrénie

Abstract : Background: People with schizophrenia (PSDS) have low sexual satisfaction. However, causes of this established sexual dissatisfaction in this population remain poorly understood. Negative symptoms inherent to the disease, in particular the blunted affect which is related to desire, as well as dyadic adjustment which predicts sexual satisfaction in the general population, would be likely to limit sexual satisfaction in PSDS. Objectives: Objectives of the study are to determine whether blunted affect and sexual satisfaction are related in PSDS, and to study the influence of dyadic adjustment on sexual satisfaction. Methods: 47 PSDS responded to the Self assessment of Negative Symptoms (SNS), a dyadic adjustment scale (DAS-16) and the Index of Sexual Satisfaction (ISS). Results: Blunted affect predicts sexual satisfaction in PSDS. However, dyadic adjustment appears to have a greater impact than blunted affect on sexual satisfaction in PSDS. Conclusion: PSDS have a similar interest in sexuality than the general population. Therefore, it is important to understand the psychopathological determinants affecting their sexual function. With the goal of full recovery, PSDS must be accompanied towards a fulfilling sexuality that promotes a satisfying quality of life.
