Abstract

Introduction: Pregnancy is a special period in which physiological and psychological changes are observed in the body. Sexuality-related problems exhibit significant changes during pregnancy. In this study, we aimed to determine the distribution of changes in sexual behavior during pregnancy according to the trimesters and to determine the effects of these dysfunctions on quality of life.
