The aim of this study is to compare the sexual function of kidney transplant recipients and end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients receiving haemodialysis (HD) in female patients. In the sample population of this study, there were 72 women in the transplant group and 40 women in the HD group. To test the differences in the quantitative variables between these two groups, an independent sample Student's t-test was performed. Sexual relationship, sexual function, sexual frequency and sexual fear in the renal transplant patients are significantly better than HD patients. Sexual intercourse satisfaction was apparently higher in the kidney recipients than in the HD patients. Twenty-one patients in transplanted group described number was 6 (15) (p = 0.03). This study indicated that female kidney transplant recipients experienced a significantly better sexual relationship compared with the ESRD patients receiving HD. © 2010 European Dialysis and Transplant Nurses Association/European Renal Care Association.
