Materials and methods: Behavioural cross-sectional online survey (I-SHARE) combined with structured interviews with the aim to determine the impact of
COVID-19 social restriction measures on sexual health and psychological well-being and behaviour was conducted.
Results and conclusions: Results showed increase of tension and its negative impact on frequency and satisfaction with sex life. Frequency of sexual intercourse decreased more for people who did not live with their partner. Increase of alcohol consumption and loss of job decreased satisfaction with sex life. Controversial data about contraception availability and intimate partner violence were obtained showing no impact in survey, but revealing contraception access restrictions and intimate partner violence increase during qualitative research interviews.
