Abstract

BACKGROUND: A comprehensive understanding of several approaches, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological, is needed to reduce sexual function problems after hysterectomy. As one example, the research of Rawland et al. (2015) and that study found that cognitive, affective, motivational, behavioral, self-efficacy, and sexual acceptance responses could potentially play an important roles in the assessment of appropriate care. However, in general, there is no research that explains that self-acceptance can affect attitudes.

AIM: This study aims to analyze the correlation between self-acceptance with attitudes toward caring for sexual function after hysterectomy.

METHODS: The data measured were self-acceptance and attitudes toward treatment of sexual function after hysterectomy which was obtained from post-hysterectomy women. Data on self-acceptance using the Self-acceptance – Scale for Persons with Early Blindness (SAS-EB) questionnaire and data on attitudes toward caring for sexual function were made by researchers using references from the theory planned of behavior (TPB) (Alshawish et al., 2020). Statistical analysis used was Chi-square to analyze self-acceptance with attitudes to caring for sexual function after hysterectomy.

RESULTS: This study found the importance of self-acceptance in determining attitudes toward caring for sexual function after hysterectomy. A person’s positive attitude will affect behavior to treat sexual function after hysterectomy.

CONCLUSION: In general, this study proves that self-acceptance is related to attitudes to caring for sexual function after hysterectomy.
