Abstract:
Article reviews research on the reproductive issues facing women with spina bifida. More than 150 titles and abstracts were reviewed. Paper were chosen if they provided information on menarche, menstruation and sexual maturation, gynecological issues, sexual function, birth control, pregnancy outcomes, and menopause. Seventy-five studies met the criteria for inclusion. These were then reviewed and classified by level of evidence. In general, little research has examined the reproductive issues of women with spina bifida and similar disabilities.
