Sexual activity and risk of HIV infection among patients with schizophrenia.
This study sought to determine the frequency and types of sexual behavior among patients with schizophrenia and to assess the behavior with respector risk of HIV infection.
Ninety-five inpatients and outpatients with a research diagnosis of schizophrenia underwent a series of face-to-face interviews to determine their sexual activity and correlate it with demographic characteristics, psychopathology, and medication side effects.
Forty-four percent of the patients had been sexually active in the preceding 6 months, and 62% of these had had multiple partners.
Sexual activity was associated with greater general psychopathology.
