The MFSQ was developed in a longitudinal study of the menopausal transition and designed to measure aspects of female sexuality likely to be affected by changing sex hormone levels. Consistes of 19 items, answered on a 7point likert scale. These items are grouped into five factors ; two additional items measure “attractivity.” The five factors comprise: sexual interest (4 items), satisfaction with frequency of sexual activity (3 items), vaginal lubrication (3 items), sex partner(3 items), and orgasm (4 items). Items 1-11 can be answered by both sexually active and nonactive women, whereas items 12–19 pertain exclusively to women who have engaged in vaginal intercourse.
