Intervention and control groups both will have socio-demographic characteristics. The population will be post-married women of age 20 to 39 years. Eligible participants will be randomly selected into control or intervention groups by applying the Balanced Blocked Randomizing method. For estimating sample size a confidence level of 95%, with a power of 80%, and with a dropout rate of 15%, will be used in open epi online software. This led to about 40 participants in each group of intervention and the control group will be the sample size. An adapted questionnaire (tool) called the female sexual functioning index (FSFI) from an Iranian study will be used in the study.

For the comparison of scores between and within the groups, the Pair T-test and repeated measure of variance (ANOVA) will be used. The results will be considered significant for all statistical analyses if P < 0.05.
