    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Loss of libido and difficulty having sex are common complaints among breast cancer survivors, new research confirms.

    "Sexual problems are among the most common and least talked about side effects of breast cancer treatment," study co-author Susan R. Davis, MD, of Victoria, Australia's Monash University Medical School tells WebMD.


    "About 70% of the women in our study were experiencing a meaningful loss of desire and sexual function a full two years after diagnosis."


    Check out this article for tips on how to manage some of the most common complaints, then share your feelings about the subject.


    Have you had a difficult time discussing sexual issues with your partner or doctor? If you are comfortable, please share what you have experienced and any success you have had in improving your symptoms.
