Many people experience changes to intimate and sexual aspects of their lives after a cancer diagnosis and treatment. Depending on what treatments you have there are various ways to manage the side effects. You can also find support to cope with your feelings about changes to your sex life. Dr Wendy Vanselow is the head of the Royal Women's Hospital's Sexual Counselling Clinic. Wendy will discuss practical strategies to assist us to communicate about sexuality, and to build sexual confidence and enhance intimate relationships after cancer.

This session is for any woman undergoing or recovering from cancer, whatever your relationship status or sexuality. Women only session.
