Many studies examined sexual function after RP-IPAA and particularly sexual satisfaction, desire, ability to experience orgasm and coital frequency [40, 43, 45, 46]. Results were satisfactory, as most of these aspects are influenced very little by surgery. However, a percentage of patients, ranging from 3% to 18%, were afraid of having stool leaks during intercourse. In contrast, especially in those with postoperatively unchanged or increased coital frequency from 82% to 100%, the appearance of dys-pareunia was a rather frequent complication. Incidence varied considerably, from 0% to 38% [41, 42], stabilising in most works at 25%. Moreover, Farouk found that the incidence of this complication after surgery seems to increase over time .
