  • Having a physical or intellectual disability doesn’t change your sexuality and your desire to express it.
  • Your disability may affect your ability to have the sex life you would like – you may have to approach sexual activity differently, and you may have questions and concerns relating to your physical or emotional health.
  • You have the right to make your own informed choices about the method of contraception you use, but your disability may narrow the range of contraception options available to you.
  • Talk to your health care professional about your concerns about your disability and sexuality.
