Background
Sexual dysfunctions are among the factors affecting marital satisfaction.

Objectives
The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of counselling on the sexual satisfaction of women with impaired sexual dysfunction referred to Hamadan health centres.

Material and methods
This clinical randomised trial was conducted on 120 low-libido subjects referring to comprehensive health centres in Hamedan city. They were randomly divided into two groups of 60 women. Data collection tools included demographic information forms and social and personal characteristics, the Hudson Sexual Satisfaction Questionnaire and a questionnaire of low-level sexual desire assessment, completed in both groups. The counselling and care programme consisted of 7 sessions, each lasting 90 minutes. Data was analysed using SPSS software version 16 and t-test, ANCOVA and chi-squared tests.

Results
Mean scores in the experimental group were significantly higher than the control following the intervention (p < 0.001).

Conclusions
The results indicate the success of counselling on the sexual satisfaction of the research subjects and suggest that midwifery counselling in this area has increased sexual satisfaction and improved libido.
