Objective: To determine the association between sleep quality and erectile dysfunction(ED) in young adults in a Peruvian university.

Materials and Methods: Observational, cross-sectional study. A group of 90 male students of the medicine school of Universidad Ricardo Palma, Lima, Peru were enrolled between May and June 2017. Two validated questionnaires were used in the data collection, the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index and the International Erectile Function Index (IIEF-5).

The univariate descriptive statistical analysis was performed, normality assumptions (using the Shapiro-Wilk test) were evaluated. A bivariate analysis was performed using the chi-square statistical test with a statistical significance of p<0.05. The data were analyzed in the software STATA v.14

Results: A total of 90 male students were evaluated. The mean was 20.4 +/- 2.05 years (range 18 to 26), corresponding to 71.10% for individuals between 18 and 21 years. Regarding the Pittsburgh questionnaire, 42.22% (n = 38) presented a majority score 5, requiring medical attention for sleep problems. In this group 47.36% (n = 18) presented some grade of ED. There was identified that 27.77% (n = 25) presented mild ED and just 1.12% (n = 1) presented moderate ED. No cases of severe ED were found.

In the bivariate analysis a statistically significant association between higher than 5 score in Pittsburgh Scale and any degree of erectile dysfunction (p = 0.001).

Conclusions: The prevalence of ED in young adults of a medicine school in a Peruvian university is 28.89%. We found statistically significant association between higher than 5 score in Pittsburgh Scale and any degree of erectile dysfunction.
