According to one survey conducted by LIVESTRONG, nearly 60% of cancer patients report having sexual dysfunction following surgery. As many as 85% to 90% of prostate, breast, and gynecologic cancer survivors record long-term physical intimacy issues. But there is hope!
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we want to conclude the month of October with an informative and encouraging discussion about Intimacy After Cancer.
Topics covered will include:
• Physical Symptoms of Sexual Dysfunction
• Options for Improving Sexual Desire and Function
• Common Questions About Sex after Cancer
For one hour, Dr. Tara Thompson, pharmacist and specialist in women's sexual health, and co-host Heather Quaile, DNP, WHNP-BC, SANE (The SHOW Center), will interview Dr. Becky Kaufman Lynn. Dr. Lynn is a board-certified gynecologist/sexual counselor and Director of the Evora Center for Menopause and Sexual Health.
