Introduction: sexual dysfunction is one of the effects created following cancer. Several factors affected in improving or exacerbating sexual function. This study aimed to assess predictive factors of sexual function in women with gynecologic cancer.

Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study (during January to June, 2016), 800 patients with gynecologic cancers were recruited from two hospital affiliated to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences by convenience sampling method. Data were collected using demographic questionnaire and Rosen sexual function index. In order to the data analysis, descriptive and inferential statistics like multiple linear regression analysis were done.

Results: The mean score of sexual function among gynecologic cancer patients was 19.48 ±6.43 (CI95: 19.03-19.92). The results of the linear regression model showed that duration of disease (β = -.107, p =.001), stage of the cancer (β = -.908, p =.004), type of treatment (β =.563, p =.005), and social protection (β=.341, p=.001) can significantly predict women`s sexual function.

Conclusion: Considering the results of present study four factors including duration of disease, stage of cancer, type of treatment and social support proposed the predictive factors of sexual function in women with gynecological cancer. So, it is suggested to perform educational programs through media and health care centers in order to promote the awareness of patients, families, illness perception, and as the whole population.
