Interactive webinar with Dr. Catalina Lawsin on Sex After Cancer: How does the “New Normal” Change and How Can Your Sexual Well-Being Adapt
Sexual changes after cancer can impact 40-100% of cancer survivors, particularly amongst those diagnosed with “below the belt” cancers. Unfortunately, most cancer survivors are unaware and unprepared for these sexual changes and are left living with long-term side effects including decreased libido, painful sex, changes to orgasm, and decreased sexual and relationship satisfaction. Fortunately, there are psychological and medicinal strategies that can improve sexual well-being. Unfortunately, there’s a gap between those who need the support and those who actually receive it. This webinar aims to heighten awareness to sexual changes after cancer and offer concrete strategies cancer survivors and their partners can do to improve sexual well-being.
