Sexuality During Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy can, but does not always, affect sexual organs and functioning. The possible side effects depend on the drugs used, age, and general health.

You and your partner should talk about sexual concerns with each other, your doctor or nurse, or a counselor who can give you the information and the reassurance you need.

The effects of chemo on sexuality is different for men and women.

Keep in mind that intercourse is not necessary for sexual intimacy.
