Cancer and Sex ~ You’re Not Broken!

I can’t count the number of times someone has told me that their sex life feels very broken after cancer diagnosis and treatment. Cancer and sex in the same sentence seem like an oxymoron. Sudden big changes to libido and sexual function can feel like an earthquake, and one that’s unexpected. Then it’s like looking for a needle in a haystack to discover tools and resources to help.

It’s not over unless you say it is. Yes, things have changed. Yes, there may be pain and fear, sadness and grief. The first thing to do is feel your feelings. Yell if you want to, whatever it takes to get the feelings out. Then there’s a little space to know that you’re not broken even though everything is different. Change is inevitable over the course of our lives, and there have been and will be more sexual changes.

It’s time to explore new horizons. Check out the resources on this website. Call me. This is my passion. I understand, I’m here and I want you to have a wonderful sex life. Watch this little video for some inspiration and ideas.
