HEALTH CARE FOR LESBIAN & BISEXUAL WOMEN
One study of 150 lesbian, bisexual, and queer women offered preliminary evidence that social support, resilience, and self-esteem help foster body appreciation, which might be protective against mental health concerns and disordered eating.
A report demonstrated significantly better reproductive outcomes after reciprocal in vitro fertilization (IVF), with a clinical pregnancy rate of 60% compared with 40% after autologous IVF, and live birth rate of 57.1% in reciprocal IVF versus 29.8% in autologous IVF. However, both partners of the couple need to be willing to participate in reciprocal IVF.
