Marital satisfaction is an overall and mental evaluation of the nature of marriage, which includes the level of meeting the needs, expectations, and desires of the individual. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between sexual dysfunction and sexual self-esteem with marital satisfaction in female nurses.
Methods: This research was performed as a descriptive correlational study. Statistical population included all married female nurses in Kermanshah hospitals supervised by the Ministry of Science. Samples were selected from 3 hospitals by available sampling, and 150 subjects were selected according to Morgan table. The used tools included Marital Satisfaction Scale (ENRICH), Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI), and Sexual Self-Esteem Inventory for Women (SSEI-W). Data were analyzed using correlation coefficient and regression statistical tests.

The results of the regression analysis showed that sexual dysfunction and sexual self-esteem predicted 0.16 of marital satisfaction (p<0/001, f=0.4, r2=0.16).
