Even though many doctors may think that stopping the cancer is the most important thing, and other problems are minor by comparison, the truth is that the quality of your life as a whole is what matters the most. Sexual problems in particular are not trivial, and can have a huge impact on how much you enjoy life and all the wonderful things in it. You will be glad you have taken the time to learn what you can do to resume the fun and fulfillment of a healthy sex life.

Cancer treatment can cause many different types of changes in your body, depending on whether you were treated with surgery, radiation, and/or chemotherapy. The damage caused by treatment will also depend on exactly where the cancer was and what type and stage of cancer it was. Of course, it is important to talk to your doctor about any health concern you have, including problems with sex including pain, lack of desire, weakness, or issues with fertility.
