One of the reasons of uncontrolled increasing the elective cesarean in recent years, is the concerns about sexual activity and sexual disorders after a vaginal delivery. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between the type of previous delivery and sexual satisfaction in women referring to Shahid Mostafa Khomeini hospital in Behbahan. This cross-sectional study was performed on 277 married women aged 18-45 using simple random sampling referring to Shahid Mostafa Khomeini hospital in Behbahan from April to December in 2015. To collect data, a two part questionnaire including 14 questions of demographic characteristics and Larson sexual satisfaction questionnaire including 25 questionnaires was used. Data was analyzed with SPSS version 17, using analysis of variance ANOVA and more precise Test-Tukey test with a significance level of less than 0.05. The amount of sexual satisfaction was higher in the people without delivery than in the persons with cesarean or vaginal delivery (P=0.001). The amount of sexual satisfaction was the same in the group of vaginal delivery and cesarean and no significant difference was there. The amount of sexual satisfaction in persons with 4 or more deliveries was lower than this amount in persons with one, two or three deliveries. The amount of sexual satisfaction was the same in the persons with one, two or three deliveries and no significant difference was there. The pregnancy process and delivery without concerning the type of delivery (the type of delivery does not affect the sexual satisfaction) affect the sexual relationship. This issue can be caused by interference of two roles of being mother and wife.
