To the Editor: The study reported by Dr Rhodes
and colleagues,1 like previous studies evaluating
the effect of hysterectomy on sexual behavior,2-4
focused on the quantity rather than the quality of sexual activity. Rhodes
et al measured sexual function with closed response and multiple-choice questions
rather than standardized sexual response questionnaires or interviews that
would have brought greater meaning and specificity to the results.
