Intimacy Issues After Breast Surgery and Treatment

Session begins at 5:00 PM

 

Please RSVP for this program above

 

Session Description:   Why should we focus on sexual health?   With 43% of women and 31% of men in the United States with a sexual health concern, it is important to recognize and validate the importance of sexual wellness to your overall health.    Women who have been diagnosed and treated for breast cancer may have a variety of sexual concerns.   Because breast cancer is being detected earlier and Survivors are living long, full and productive lives, it is important that issues with intimacy are properly dealt with when they occur.    

A sexual health concern can impact every aspect of your life, from how your body functions to the intimacy in your relationship, leading to an overall poor quality of life and general dissatisfaction.   Good news - the majority of sexual health concerns are treatable and you can enjoy being intimate with your partner again.
