Highlights from Baring It All: Final report from a survey on reproductive and sexual health in women+ with inflammatory arthritis, rheumatic, and psoriatic diseases.

We heard from over 400 people with inflammatory arthritis, rheumatic, and psoriatic diseases who identify as female (women+) to understand their reproductive and sexual health concerns. They shared their experiences and insights regarding contraception, family planning, menopause, sexual health, and parenting.

Recommendations Are:

  • Healthcare providers should engage in ongoing and regular discussions about family planning with their patients.
  • Patient organizations should collaborate with rheumatology and dermatology experts to develop informational materials for women+ about family planning.
  • Rheumatology and dermatology experts should work with patient organizations to develop standards of care for family planning counselling.
