Let’s Talk About Sex (and Breast Cancer)

Young straight and lesbian women discuss how breast cancer treatment has impacted their sexual health and function and the strategies they took to address these challenges as partnered or single women. Anne Katz, RN, PhD, clinical nurse specialist and sexuality counselor, explains why breast cancer can affect sexuality and how young women can ask for help from their healthcare team to overcome these sexual health challenges.
