Intimacy After Breast Cancer


This topic comes with a unique set of #issues for most of us. After a diagnosis and treatments, the fatigue from doing daily routine activities can be a challenge. Typically, things do not return to normal. While intimacy itself does not translate as sex it brings about discussing those moments that may lead up to such.


Several variables influence our perspectives and realities due to certain aspects of treatment, its aftermath, and our relationships. These variables may include lasting side effects, body image, age, relationship status, marital status, so forth, and so on…. It is an individualized topic and a common denominator depending on where one is in the process of both life and treatment.


It is a topic that if for medical reasons treatment has induced unfavorable conditions or created a climate where intimacy and or sex have become uncomfortable one should speak with their doctor concerning.


The 'takeaway' is to be okay with where you are and/or to continue to seek the support you need to get there. There is definitely no one-size-fits-all here.
