Reproductive decision-making in individuals who cannot conceive spontaneously

We are investigating the factors that influence reproductive decision-making amongst individuals who cannot conceive spontaneously.  Individuals who cannot conceive spontaneously are defined as those who require some form of medically assisted reproduction for reasons other than medical infertility, and consist of heterogeneous groups including gay couples, individuals who are infertile as a result of cancer treatment, and people with heritable conditions.  Although many individuals who cannot conceive spontaneously report the desire to become a parent, few realise their childbearing goals. 

Current and upcoming projects include an investigation of the correlates of fertility referrals for cancer patients and a study of decision-making in CCS groups.
