Purpose: This study aimed to examine the psychometric properties and performance of a Chinese version of the Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) among a sample of Chinese women with cervical cancer.

Methods: A cross-sectional survey design was used. The respondents included 215 women with cervical cancer in an oncology hospital in China. A translated Chinese version of the FSFI was used to investigate their sexual functioning. Psychometric testing included internal consistency reliability (Cronbach's alpha coefficient and item-total correlations), test-retest reliability, construct validity (principal component analysis via oblique rotation and confirmatory factor analysis), and variability (floor and ceiling effects).

Results:The mean score of the total scale was 20.65 ± 4.77. The Cronbach values were .94 for the total scale, .72-.90 for the domains. Test-retest correlation coefficients over 2-4 weeks were .84 (p < .05) for the total scale, .68-.83 for the subscales. Item-total correlation coefficients ranged between .47 and .83(p < .05). A five-factor model was identified via principal component analysis and established by confirmatory factor analysis, including desire/arousal, lubrication, orgasm, satisfaction, and pain. There was no evidence of floor or ceiling effects.

Conclusions: With good psychometric properties similar to its original English version, this Chinese version of the FSFI is demonstrated to be a reliable and valid instrument that can be used to assess sexual functioning of women with cervical cancer in China. Future research is still needed to confirm its psychometric properties and performance among a large sample.
