Sexual and Reproductive Health: A Survey for Women with Arthritis and Psoriasis

People living with arthritis and psoriasis are often diagnosed in the prime of their lives when they are considering a variety of health-related reproductive decisions related to contraception, sexual health, identity, and family planning goals.

For many reasons, women-identified people who live with these conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, enteropathic arthritis, undifferentiated arthritis and psoriasis, have unique considerations and needs.

As a follow-up to our broader women’s health survey and resources, the Canadian Psoriasis Network is working with the Canadian Arthritis Patients Alliance, the Canadian Spondylitis Association and the Canadian Association of Psoriasis Patients to launch this Sexual and Reproductive Health survey on International Women’s Day!

The survey considers women’s needs and experiences across different life stages and explores a variety of topics such as contraception, family planning considerations, menopause, sexual health, and parenting. We are grateful to gain insights from all ages and life stages. You are the experts! We look to you for a better understanding of what resources and support tools related to women’s sexual and reproductive health are needed.


To better support the broader community, survey findings will help our organizations develop resources and tools to address these gaps. The results  will help raise awareness of these conditions and to build awareness about the experience and needs of women who live with them.

The survey is confidential and anonymous. It should take about 20 minutes to complete.

The survey closes on April 18, 2021 @ 11:59pm ET.
