Balen, Rachel and Crawshaw, Marilyn (2006) Sexuality and fertility issues in ill health and disability: from early adolescence to adulthood. Jessica Kingsley, London, UK. ISBN 978-1-84310-339-4,

This groundbreaking text explores sexuality and fertility issues for young people living with ill health or disability. This subject is often considered taboo, although for some of those coping with sexual or fertility impairment, it can be as difficult as coping with the disability or health condition itself. Bringing together personal, professional and academic perspectives from a variety of disciplines and located within a life-course development framework, this book takes a holistic view of young people moving towards adulthood and examines the impact of illness or disability on their sexual and fertile identities. The broad range of chapters includes the experiences of minority ethnic groups, managing relationships, fertility preservation and treatment, and the transition to parenthood. Professionals working with adolescents and young adults will find this book a rich source of insights, information and guidance
