Sexual Violence During Pregnancy is a Concern
ISSM Seeks Methodologist - Apply by January 31st!
In a recent Journal of Sexual Medicine study, approximately 12% of pregnant Turkish women were exposed to sexual violence from their partner or spouse.
The authors also found that rates of sexual distress were higher among women who had experienced sexual violence.
The study included 605 pregnant women with an average age of 27. All were sexually active and most said they had good relationships with their partners.
The most commonly-reported forms of violence were anger when sex was refused and forced intercourse.
More information on the study, including suggestions for nurses who care for pregnant women, can be found here.
