Survey for women with CAH aged 25-64.

Jan 7, 2020

Are you a woman with a diagnosis of the condition congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) aged between 25 and 64 years?

We are endocrinology doctors at Newcastle University in the UK investigating whether some women with this condition might find it more difficult to have cervical screening (aka smear tests). Previous studies (including the national audit of CAH – the CaHASE study) have shown that there can be issues with sexual function in women with CAH, and we are interested to see if this also applies to cervical screening.

We would be very grateful if you would consider completing the short anonymous survey below:

It should take less than 5 minutes and all answers are completely confidential (we will not ask for personal information that could identify you such as name, address or date of birth).

With thanks

Drs Kerri Devine and Anna Mitchell
