    Background & Aim: Eighty percent of primiparous women face sexual problems after delivery and in two-thirds of them the problem remains for six months. Identifying this problem, increasing health team’s knowledge and consultation with couples about sexual problems can play an important role in decreasing these problems. The present study was undertaken to determine sexual problems resulting from delivery in primiparous women. Patients & Methods: In this cross-sectional study sexual problems of primiparous women before and after delivery were determined and compared. Data were collected through self-reporting questionnaire. 160 primiparous women were selected through consecutive sampling. Results: Findings showed that painful penetration, dyspareunia, itching after intercourse, lack of vaginal lubrication, loss of sexual desire, difficulty in reaching orgasm and anal sexual relation increased after delivery(P<0.05). There was a significant relation between decreased sexual desire and marriage duration, pain during intercourse with number of intercourse per week, pain during intercourse with time of first intercourse, and anal sexual relation with kind of delivery(P<0.05). Conclusion: Data indicated that sexual problems increased after delivery. Therefore, it is recommended that sexual problems after delivery should be placed on the list of health teaching issues and sexual problems of men be investigated.
