16 September 2016 // If you are an adult with spina bifida, researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine want to hear from you! They are interested in learning more about the sexual health of adults with spina bifida worldwide. If you are 18 or older and have spina bifida, you can participate, whether or not you ever had sex. The survey is only available in English. You will be asked questions about your background, your experiences with spina bifida, and your sexuality (feelings about sex, sexual behaviors, and desires for a family). The online survey takes only 15-20 minutes.
All your answers are confidential and completely anonymous. No one you know will see your answers. Even the researchers will not be able to identify who you are or your answers. You can withdraw from the study at any time. To go to the survey, go to this link: https://goo.gl/NocVRR
