    Introduction: Sexual dysfunctions are highly prevalent among men and women. Pregnancy is one of the predisposing factors of sexual dysfunctions and it is associated with a wide variety of physical and psychological causes as well. The aim of this study was to compare sexual dysfunctions of men before and during pregnancy of their wives. Methods: This study was a descriptive-analytical and cross sectional and retrospective study in which, 100 men whose wives had experienced recent pregnancy were surveyed. Subjects were selected through multi stage sampling and they were given a researcher-made questionnaire measuring sexual dysfunctions in men before and during their wives' pregnancy. Collected data were analyzed by descriptive and analytical tests using SPSS software version 16. P value less than 0.01 was considered statistically significant. Results: Remarkable numbers of men have experienced at least one of the sexual dysfunctions before and during their wives' pregnancy. Dysfunctions included premature ejaculation, sleep ejaculation, masturbation, impaired erection, altered sex drive and inability to reach orgasm, respectively. Wilcoxon test also revealed a significant relationship between altered sex drive, inability to reach orgasm and premature jaculation in subjects before and during their wives' pregnancy (p<0.01). Conclusion: Intensity of some sexual dysfunctions increase in men during their wives' pregnancy. So, it is suggested that education about sexual issues should be considered for couples particularly for men during their wives' pregnancy.
