Sex and Cancer: Questions for Your Healthcare Provider

What sexual impact should I expect from my cancer or its treatment?

How long will these changes last?

What can I do about them?

Are there any restrictions that I should be aware of?

Is it OK to have sex during treatment?

Do I need to use birth control? If so, what kind?

After treatment, how long will I need to use birth control?

Will I be able to have children after treatment? If not, what can I do if I want to have children? Can you give me the name of a fertility specialist who can tell me more?
