Study Details

Study Description

Brief Summary

The investigators aim to perform cognitive interviews to assess how pelvic floor disorders impact sexual functioning in women who have sex with women (WSW). As a secondary objective there will be cognitive interviews to assess perceptions of sexual function questionnaires such as Female Sexual Function Index (FSFI) and Pelvic Organ Prolapse/Urinary Incontinence Sexual Questionnaire-IUGA Revised (PISQ-IR) in WSW.

Condition or Disease Intervention/Treatment Phase
  • Other: None, this is an observational study

Detailed Description

There is a paucity of data regarding care of women who have sex with women (WSW). While some cohort studies are being performed in general gynecology, no studies document the reasons as to why WSW seek urogynecological care, or how pelvic floor disorders (PFDs) affect sexual function in this population. Another detrimental gap in current knowledge and a barrier to care for WSW is the lack of understanding of what would drive WSW to seek care, if there are special considerations for care, or if the commonly used condition specific questionnaires adequately reflect their concerns. The Investigators aim to perform qualitative interviews to understand how PFDs affect sexual function, and if commonly utilized sexual function questionnaires are inclusive to WSW.
