Abstract 
Objective: Today frigidity is considered a sexual disability. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between sexual frigidity (as a sexual disability) and the dimensions of marital conflict in married women in Yazd. 
Methods: The study was descriptive-correlational. The study population consisted of all married women living in Yazd. A hundred women who possessed the inclusion criteria were selected by purposeful sampling. The instruments of this research included two questionnaires: the Marital Conflict (MCQ) & Sexual Frigidity questionnaires. The data were analyzed by descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation) and Pearson’s correlation coefficient at (p=0.05). 
Results: Results showed a significant relationship between women’s sexual frigidity and the dimensions of marital conflict (p<0.05). This correlation was negatively associated with: partnership at home (r=0.329), sexual relationship (r=0.459), emotional reactions (r=0.359), and support seeking from children (r=0.269). Sexual frigidity was positively associated with: individual relationship with own relatives (r=0313), individual relationship with spouse’s relatives and friends (r=0.375), and separation of finances from each other (r=0.393).  Moreover, there was not a significant relationship between sexual frigidity and duration of marriage (r=0.137) & women’s age (r=0.220) (p>0.05). 
Conclusion: Based on these findings, women with higher marital conflicts show higher sexual frigidity. Furthermore, marital conflicts decreased with the passage of years of marriage. An increased sexual frigidity also reduced partner support.
