Blood pressure, sexual activity, and dysfunction in women with hypertension: baseline findings from the Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial (SPRINT).
The authors assessed the association between systolic blood pressure and other variables, and sexual activity and sexual dysfunction in women with hypertension. They found that younger age, higher education, living with others, and higher weekly alcohol consumption were significantly associated with higher odds of being sexually active in the sample group. They concluded that systolic blood pressure was not significantly associated with sexual activity or sexual dysfunction.
