Most people have some side effects during cancer treatment. Your cancer doctor or nurse will explain what to expect. Some side effects can change:
- how you feel about your body
- how you feel about sex
- how your body works during sex.
Side effects often get better after treatment. But some people find they have sexual problems for a longer time after treatment ends. If you find a side effect difficult to cope with, try not to ignore it. You may feel embarrassed talking about it, but your healthcare team can help. You may have some other questions about sex and side effects that we don’t cover here. You can always talk to your cancer doctor or nurse about these.
