Women's Health

The Common Ovarian Cancer Side Effect Few People Talk About

Final thoughts

While society is not as repressed as even a few decades ago, many people still find discomfort in discussing sexual health. As such, women who suffer sexual dysfunction as a result of ovarian cancer may feel in pain and alone.

This does not have to be. Health providers' resources, therapists, other cancer survivors, and caring partners can all help the healing process. If you are in such a position where your sex life has been negatively affected by ovarian cancer, please do not remain quiet. Voice your concerns, seek help, and thereby improve your quality of life.
