dc.description.abstract The aim of this thesis is to identify and address the main challenges around designing digital period trackers. These challenges will focus mainly on (i) the range of user groups and their motivations and challenges in period tracking; (ii) the social climate in which these technologies operate and their effect on social attitudes and stigma surrounding periods; and (iii) the issues surrounding data, ethics, privacy and trustability, particularly in an intimate health use case. The research incorporates a literature review, cross-analysed with insights from 14 in-depth user interviews, which identified 5 main user groups according to tracking motivations. From the challenges identified in this analysis, solution concepts were co-created with users, which forms the basis of a test dashboard interface to test user preferences. Finally, the findings are summarised as industry-relevant, actionable recommendations for the designing of period trackers, comprising of Key Questions and a Three-Step Guideline. en
