Reproductive and Sexual Health
Sexuality and reproduction are fundamental components of being healthy and human. Intimacy is such a natural part of our experience that we may take it for granted; however, many factors can impact this part of our life – hormone therapy, sexually transmitted diseases, viruses, cancer, and more.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer or are in a relationship with someone who has, you may find that cancer affects even the most intimate aspects of our lives. Many patients are concerned about maintaining sexual function or the ability to have children.
Doctors have made significant strides in fertility-preservation techniques and many people are now able to have children after undergoing treatment for cancer.
