From the publisher:

Sexuality after a diagnosis of cancer is a real issue for women and their partners. In her new book, Woman Cancer Sex, Dr. Anne Katz 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. Dr. Katz tackles this sensitive and often unspoken topic in several ways: detailing the physical aspect of sexuality—how things work; highlighting the different feelings a woman might have during her experience; and, finally, presenting strategies women can really use in their daily life, including drugs and other therapies, tips on communicating, exercises, and more. There is also information specifically for the partner so you'll want to share this book. Modern medicine has increased the survival rate of the woman with cancer, and, for many patients, the memory of cancer and its treatments will fade. Sexuality, though, remains an important part of life and this book gives you the information and tools you need to reclaim your sex life after the challenges of cancer.
