Fertility, Body Image, and Eating Disorders

I was wondering if any of you on this board could help me.  I am a psychotherapist in private practice trying to gather information for a survey entitled "Fertility, Body Image, and Eating Disorders."  I am looking at whether there are correlations between fertility treatments and if that a) impacts body image b)  impacts one's eating habits and/ or c)  how peope who have or have had an eating disorder deal with infertility.

I am hoping to use this information in my clinical work with patients, as well as to train other medical professionals so as to improve fertility services around these issues.

Here is the survey:

This survey is anonymous, confidential, and voluntary in nature.
No expected harm shall result from completing this survey and your answers will help me gain a better understanding of fertility, body image, and eating disorder attitudes and behaviors in my clinical work with patients.

If you are interested in completig the survey, please complete it by November 10, 2013.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
