Abstract

This research verified the link between HIV status and sexual problems in young adults. Based on the results of our study following the administration of the self-assessment questionnaire on sexual problems (male and female), we came to the conclusion that HIV-positive status causes more sexual problems, particularly among young men. Despite the problems of vaginal dryness and painful coitus observed in HIV-positive young women, we can say that HIV-positive young women do not generally have sexual problems that interfere with sexual activity.
