Save the Boobies… And Your Vagina! – Just the Tip Tuesday [Video]
Since it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Nisha McKenzie & myself talk about the part of cancer that unfortunately gets overlooked... sexual health.
The struggle of dealing with cancer in itself is hard enough on a woman but going through treatments (radiation, chemo therapy, surgery) can effect a woman's sexual health as can the aftermath of beating cancer.
That's why its encouraged for women to seek treatment from a sex therapist or counselor to help with not only their sexuality but also their relationships, which can also take a toll during cancer. And when a woman has the support of her partner, the chance of recurrence significantly goes down.
This is a side of cancer that many don't think or talk about and it's just as important as surviving!
For questions or information, you can talk to your doctor/provider or contact the Center for Women's Sexual Health at (616) 591-9100. Sexuality after cancer is one of the conditions they help patients with.
Of course, we love boobs (who doesn't?) but we don't want your vagina to suffer either.
