Join us for Komen Conversations - Intimacy After Cancer

Komen Conversations - Intimacy After Cancer

Sex and intimacy can be difficult for most women after a breast cancer diagnosis. Although any serious illness in either partner can disrupt a sexual and intimate relationship, breast cancer can cause unique problems.

After surgery or breast cancer treatments, body image issues may affect how you view intimacy, as well as your sexuality. Some side effects of breast cancer treatment may impact physical intimacy, and anxiety and depression can impact your sexuality also. Chemotherapy and other breast cancer treatments can lead to early menopause and changes in your body that you aren’t used to. Ugh. What gives?!

Join us on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:00 PM for an unguarded FREE Komen Conversation about “Intimacy After Cancer,” where Bon Secours experts will answer the questions you’ve always wanted to ask about one of the most sensitive topics to discuss.
