The proposed final project addresses the need for a bridge between women with sexual dysfunction and the healthcare available for these conditions. Many women experience sexual function problems but there are significant barriers to help-seeking for these conditions. As systemic change takes time, I aim instead to arm women with information that will help work within the current system. I conducted a literature review on female sexual dysfunction and women’s help-seeking prior to developing a web-based guide for Albertan women seeking help for sexual dysfunctions. This web-based guide, available at, was designed to help empower women with increased knowledge about why, when, where, and how to seek help in order to improve their help-seeking experiences, sexual dysfunction, and overall physical and mental health.
