Everything Nobody Tells You About Cancer Treatment and Your Sex Life: Your A-Z Guide "was written as a resource for women to help them anticipate the sexual health changes their bodies may experience throughout cancer treatment and validate their experiences throughout survivorship,” according to the authors of a study in the June 2014 issue of the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing called “Improving Communication about Sexual Health for Adults Living with Ovarian Cancer”.
