Sexuality & Intimacy for Women with Cancer - POSTPONED to Jan. 8

  • SHARE

This program has been POSTPONED to Sunday, January 8th from 3:30-5:00pm, and is now a program that will discuss intimacy issues for both women and men. 

Virtually all women cancer survivors will experience some form of sexual dysfunction following a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Cancer treatment, including surgery, chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, bone marrow transplantation, and radiation therapy, may impact sexual health. Sexual health is often left out of conversations with physicians after a cancer diagnosis and unresolved sexual dysfunction can raise levels of distress and anxiety and lower quality of life. 

Join Sage Bolte, PhD, LCSW, OSW-C, for an intimate discussion around physical problems such as vaginal dryness, dyspareunia, chemically induced menopause, reduced libido, erectile dysfunction, or for psychological distress caused by changes in body image, depression, anxiety, and the inability to achieve arousal and orgasm. Discuss ways to care for your sexual self by empowering your body interaction. 

Our programs are open to the community, and tailored to meet the needs of people affected by cancer. Classes and workshops are free or low cost on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that our programs are accessible to everyone.
