In order to test the statistical hypotheses after confirmation of the default, the normal distribution of data was done using one-way ANOVA tests and post-Tukey and T-test dance tests for comparing psychosomatic symptoms and sexual tendencies among the research samples. The results of the test of statistical hypotheses showed that psychological symptoms and sexual orientation in women with a history of mental disorders, women with physical illnesses and healthy women have a significant difference.
