Abstract

The psychological, social and sexual effects of gestational trophoblastic disease in both patients and their partners are reviewed. The results suggest that despite the favorable prognosis of this disease, mood disturbances, sexual disturbances and fertility concerns can persist in both patients and their partners. Recommendations are made concerning providing supportive care to meet the needs of patients and their partners.
