Abstract

Using a combined qualitative-quantitative methodology, a convenience sample of 503 women revealed that the most prevalent problems lesbian women encountered for which they did and did not seek traditional health care were menstrual, sexually transmitted diseases, reproductive, bladder or kidney, and breast problems. Reasons for not seeking health care were deduced, as was the manner in which the women participated in their health care, their feelings regarding health care, and how they would like to see health care changed.
