How does cancer affect sexual health?
Cancer and its treatments can affect your sexual health in several ways. Changes in your physical health can have an impact on how you feel about yourself sexually and influence your thoughts and behaviors, which affects your relationships.
Cancer treatments can change your desire for sex (libido) and your sexual function. Radiation, chemotherapy, and surgery can also have an impact on your hormone levels, which influence sexual health, and can trigger early menopause, which signals the end of your childbearing years, and you stop having periods for good.
The transition to menopause and perimenopause, the time leading up to the end of your periods, can also cause changes that affect your sexual health and function. Dr. duPont offers customized services to help you navigate your wellness and sexual health after cancer care, during menopause, and beyond.
