Abstract


O objetivo geral desta investigação foi avaliar os níveis de sensibilidade, funcionamento sexual e satisfação sexual em mulheres grávidas. Trata-se de um estudo quantitativo, com uma tipologia descritiva, comparativa e preditiva, uma vez que pretende comparar e descrever o comportamento das variáveis em estudo, bem como estimar a relação preditiva entre as variáveis. A média de idades é de 31.32 anos (D.P.= 6.50). Foi criado um protocolo de investigação que contemplou um questionário sociodemográfico construído para o efeito deste estudo, o Questionário Massachussets General Hospital – Sexual Functionning Questionnaire (MGH-SFQ) (satisfação sexual: α= .81; funcionamento sexual: α= .94) e a Escala de Sensibilidade - High Sensibility Person Scale (α= .93). Não foram encontradas diferenças estatisticamente significativas na comparação da sensibilidade, funcionamento e satisfação sexual quanto aos trimestres de gravidez (p=.091; p=.236; p=.077), gestantes primíparas e não primíparas (p=.511; p=.068; p=.591) e idade das gestantes (p=.298; p=.978; p=.439). Foram encontradas diferenças estatisticamente significativas na variável sensibilidade quanto à existência de apoio psicológico (p=.001). Na relação preditiva entre a sensibilidade e o funcionamento sexual encontrou-se um bom valor preditivo (R²=.224; R²=.254). Conclui-se assim que a sensibilidade constitui um importante mediador do funcionamento sexual em mulheres grávidas.
