Reproductive Health in Adolescent and Young Adult Women with Chronic Kidney Disease
Reproductive healthcare management for adolescents and young adults (AYA) with chronic kidney disease is an essential part of their overall healthcare. These young people are facing a multitude of healthcare realities, many of which have a direct relation on their overall sexual and reproductive health. During this time period, these AYA are faced with important health-related decisions that can either increase or improve their risk for negative long-term health outcomes. Special attention is required to ensure appropriate steps are taken and all essential factors are addressed to best ensure their maximal positive healthcare outcomes.
