Intimate partner violence is widespread and results in significant negative mental and physical health outcomes for women. This article is a review of nursing research on intimate partner violence and women's reproductive health and focuses on studies published since 1995, building on prior reviews. We begin with research on forced sex and the resulting physical and emotional trauma as well as implications for contraception, STD/HIV prevention, and condom use negotiation. We then discuss several approaches to the study of abuse during pregnancy, including several studies of nursing interventions. We conclude with the clinical implications of these studies.
