One of the side effects of hormonal contraception is sexual dysfunction. Sexual dysfunction can cause serious problems such as depression, emotional disorders, mental health disorders, dissatisfaction in husband and wife relationships, decreasing harmony and reducing the quality of life for women. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of hormonal contraception on the sexual function of women who became family planning recipients. Systematic literature review used search engines in the PubMed, Proquest and Science Direct databases from January 2008 to December 2018. The cause of sexual dysfunction in female hormonal contraceptive acceptors was hormonal changes. Factors that influence included age, race, parity, socioeconomic status, education level, depression, health conditions, body mass index (BMI), partner ownership, interpersonal, socio-cultural, alcohol consumption, pregnancy and smoking. The impact of sexual dysfunction in women covered depression, emotional disturbances, mental health disorders, physical health problems, anxiety and fear that affected the satisfaction of marital relationships. It is expected that health workers provide counseling regarding the long-term side effects of hormonal contraceptive use and become a consideration for policy makers to promote family planning programs for men.
