Independent variables tested with stepwise exclusion: age, gender, living alone, education level, income level, professional activity,early retirement due to RA, comorbidity, fatigue, pain, disease activity, HAQ, biologic treatment, mood and utility. Significant effects were found for age, gender, living alone, mood and HAQ: older patients, women, patients living alone, patients with depressed mood and those with a higher HAQ were less likely to be sexually active.
