Abstract:
A descriptive study was conducted with the purpose of refining the Sexual Adjustment Questionnaire (SAQ) and further establishing reliability and validity. Twelve women receiving treatment for breast cancer and 22 women who were at least three months post-treatment for breast cancer voluntarily participated in the research study. Each was administered the Sexual Adjustment Questionnaire. Findings of the study revealed that the SAQ in its entirety was internally consistent. Repatterning of sexual behavior subsequent to having breast cancer did not occur in either group of women. Both the women receiving cancer treatment and those post-treatment experienced a noticeable change in their sexual behavior since having cancer.
