Hi I am wanting to start conversation, about couples experiencing similar issues.

Breast Cancer treatment and how if your partners Cancer was fed by hormones which are what happened with us, that removing all traces of Estrogen and the ongoing medication to prevent it coming back and giving your best chance of life is one thing that also kills your sex life.

This as you can imagine has changed our sex life forever, meaning with the one thing we use to enjoy as loving couple like intercourse is no longer pleasurable for her or in turn for us.

Meaning everything to do with vaginal connection is just too painful and that with no hormones, Libido is no more. I would be interested to hear about other couple who are living with this after cancer. I love my wife and as a male I feel frustrated I can't pleasure her the way we use to.
