Sex after breast cancer

A breast cancer diagnosis can impact sexual health, relationships and body image.

In this webinar, we'll talk about those things that aren't often discussed: how to overcome side effects like vaginal dryness, fatigue and little or no libido, to get your sex life back on track.

Meet your panel:

Rose Wharepapa was diagnosed with breast cancer ten years ago, aged 43. Rose will talk about how her sex life changed, and what worked (and what didn’t) to get her back on track.

Dr Stella Milsom is an endocrinologist specialising in menopause, as well as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), loss of period, osteoporosis and subfertility. Stella will explore the physical side effects of breast cancer that can impact on sex life, and what’s available to overcome them.

Edit Horvath is a sex therapist and psychologist at ActiveSEXLIFESolutions. Edit will highlight the role of sex therapy after breast cancer and will explore ways to manage side effects and minimise their impact on your libido.
