The Sexual Quality of Life-Female (SQOL-F) questionnaire has been developed to assess the impact of female sexual dysfunction (FSD) on a woman's sexual quality of life. SQOL-F items were developed through interviews with 82 women. Three data sets from women's health surveys in the United Kingdom and the United States generated data for scale validation. The SQOL-F showed good psychometric properties: convergent validity, discriminant validity, and test-retest reliability. The SQOL-F is a valid instrument for assessing the impact of FSD on quality of life and as an adjunct in evaluating FSD in clinical trials. The SQOL-F sensitivity to changes in sexual function needs confirmation.
