   Today, researchers and health organizations consider emotional and psychological aspects of sexual well-being as one of the important aspects of sexual health, so that one of the important components of sexual health is sexual self-concept. Several factors can affect various aspects of female sexual self-concept. Therefore, the present study aimed to review factors related to female sexual self-concept.  During this study scoping review, researchers conducted computer search with keywords in databases such as Google Scholar, PubMed, SID, Magiran, ProQuest, Web of Science, Irandoc, library of Cochrane, Scopus databases. Finally, a complete overview of 30 articles has been used to write this article. The findings of this review study led to classification of data in three general categories including: biological factors (age, sex, marital status, race, disability and illness), psychological factors (body image, history of child sexual abused and mental health), and social factors (parents and peers and Relationship with spouse and the media). The findings of this review suggest that sexual self-concept is influenced by various factors as a key indicator of sexual activity and predictive of sexual behavior. Therefore, it seems that paying attention to the factors relevant to each person's characteristics can improve women's sexual health. Although it seems that the depth and breadth of our knowledge of the related factors influencing the sexual self-concept increase, qualitative studies are also recommended.
