The purpose of this study was to compare the effectiveness of transcranial direct current stimulation treatments and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) on sexual desire disorder in women.
The methodology of this study was semi-experimental with a pre-test and post-test design. The statistical population of the present study consisted of all women who suffered from the problem of decreased sexual desire and for this purpose went to medical centers during the year 2021 in Tabriz and were diagnosed with the hypoactive sexual desire disorder. In this research, the sampling method was available. The sample included 30 women (each group including 10 women) who had the problem of decreased sexual desire and were randomly selected in three groups including test group one transcranial Direct-Current Stimulation (tDCS), test group two (CBT) and the control group. In order to collect data, the Hurlbert index of sexual desire was used. Hurlbert obtained the reliability of the sexual desire questionnaire as 0.86 in the test-retest method. The internal consistency coefficients of Halbert's sexuality questionnaire using two methods of Cronbach's alpha was 0.89. To test the research hypotheses, one-way covariance analysis was used, using the SPSS software version 26.
The mean of the tDCS and CBT groups showed that both treatment methods were effective in reducing sexual desire disorder (P < 0.001). To generalize the results of this study, more research is needed in the future.
The results showed that both tDCS and CBT methods are effective in reducing hyposexuality in women with sexual desire disorder. In fact, these two methods can be used in the treatment of the abovementioned disorders.
