Talk with your doctor to learn what to expect and how to manage changes that may affect your sexual life. Women being treated for cancer may experience changes that affect their sexual life during, and sometimes after, treatment. While you may not have the energy or interest in sexual activity that you did before treatment, feeling close to and being intimate with your spouse or partner is probably still important. Your doctor or nurse may talk with you about how cancer treatment might affect your sexual life, or you may need to be proactive and ask questions such as: What sexual changes or problems are common among women receiving this type of treatment?

Sexual disorders are like people — they come in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. The good news is that nowadays, having a sexual concern such as erectile dysfunction ED or problems with getting aroused is no big deal. There are a wide variety of treatments — from medications to a specific form of psychotherapy — that can help virtually everyone with a sexual disorder, no matter what the concern. Keep in mind as you read through this section that sexuality exists on a continuum.
