In a recent study over 30% of trauma victims reported sexual dysfuntion one year post injury, with those suffering the most severe injuries reporting the greatest risk for sexual dysfunction.

Posttraumatic Stress Disorder and Depression were shown to be very prevalent within patients displaying more dysfunctional behaviour.

In managing sexual dysfunction within trauma victims it may therefore be necessary to treat their depression or posttraumatic stress in order to improve sexual functioning.
