Abstract : The recent study aims to find out the relationship between testosterone hormone levels and the length of use of combination pills to the sexual dysfunction in contraceptive pill users. This study deploys a cross-sectional observation method. The samples are pill contraceptive users involving 31 respondents that fulfilled the criteria. The technique used for the sampling is accidental sampling. t-independent test, Mann Whitney, and Spearman correlations are used to analyze the data. There is a meaningful relationship between testosterone hormone levels and sexual dysfunction (p=0,000 and r=0,795), along with between the duration of combination pills use and sexual dysfunction (p=0,001 dan r=0,667). Low testosterone level causes sexual dysfunction and the long duration of the use of combination pills reduces testosterone hormone level that causes sexual dysfunction to the pill contraceptive users.
