Take this survey to help us learn how breast cancer affects sexual life and what women are doing to maximize their sexual wellbeing. The results of this research may help guide the development of new coping resources for breast cancer survivors and their loved ones worldwide.

The survey will be available until mid-March. Participants just need to be women, age 18 or older, who have been diagnosed with stage I-IV disease.
