Sex After Cancer

The diagnosis and treatment of cancer can lead to profound physical and psychological changes that affect sexuality and sexual function:

  • Change in arousal response
  • Change in libido
  • Physical trauma or changes from treatment:
    • damage to nerve function
    • erectile dysfunction
    • vaginal dryness and atrophy
  • Change in relationship with self, body and partner

The articles below provide information and suggestions for healing from and adapting to some of the changes often experienced by those who go through cancer and their partners. Visit the Sex After Cancer section of our Sexual Wellness Store for books, therapeutic tools, and other related products.
