Diabetes Health Sex Survey

The results of this survey, which is for women only, will be used in a future article about how diabetes impacts women when it comes to sex.

Please skip any of the questions that do not pertain to your situation. For example, if you do not use insulin, skip the questions that imply insulin use.

The survey is completely anonymous, and no personal data is collected. Thanks for your participation.
