Woman Cancer Sex
Sexuality after a diagnosis of cancer is a real issue for women and their partners. Woman Cancer Sex explains the changes that many women with cancer experience and offers practical and compassionate advice on how to handle these changes.
Each chapter describes the experience of a woman with a particular kind of cancer and a variety of related problems, including loss of libido, physical pain, and struggles communicating with a partner. Katz tackles this sensitive and often unspoken topic in several ways: detailing the physical aspect of sexuality, highlighting the different feelings a woman might have during her experience, and presenting strategies women can really use in their daily life. Also included is specific information for the partner. This book gives your patients with cancer the information and tools they need to reclaim their sex life after the challenges of cancer.
