METHODS: This was a correlational study and statistical population was all married women at age of 25-50 who referred to gynecology centers in Tehran, Iran, in Mar 2015. 150 women who referred to gynecological clinics in two regions of 4 and 8 in Tehran, were chosen using convenience sampling method. They filled 12-Item General Health Questionnaire (GHQ-12), Sexual Function Questionnaire (SFQ), and Body Image Scale (BIS). Data were analyzed by using Pearson correlation and regression through SPSS software. RESULTS: The relationship between SD disorders syndrome and negative body image with mental health was statistically significant (P < 0.001).
