Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects more than 12% of females globally and is often accompanied by reproductive health complications, with implications for menstruation, menopause, sexual health, fertility, and pregnancy. However, the reproductive health priorities of females living with CKD are poorly understood. This study aims to assess the perceptions and priorities of reproductive health for females living with CKD.
