Beating breast cancer is a triumph, but the effects of treatment can be devastating to your sex life. This is because anti-estrogen BRCA therapy can dramatically reduce your hormone levels, causing vaginal dryness or thinning of the vagina. The result can be painful intercourse.
Reclaiming your libido is a legitimate and important part of your recovery. Localized hormone therapy can help, but it is not always an option for women. An alternative is MonaLisa Touch laser therapy, which can reverse the physiological changes caused by anti-estrogen BRCA therapy and heal the damaged tissues causing decreased pleasure and painful intercourse.
Recover your path to sexual health by first understanding that you are entitled to the support of your partner. Next, question your providers about the side effects of breast cancer treatment and get information about post-treatment solutions. Click here to learn more.
