I just started Aromasin

Hello, I hope everyone had a good day today and if you didn't I hope you find a friend on this site. I have had breast cancer in both breasts,6 years apart, two surgeries. I have had a mascetomy on both sides, different times. I am now on Aromasin, since I could not tolerate Femara, my bones were always making a cracking sound, everything hurt.

Now on Aromasin, joints are much better but it has completely terminated (for lack of an easier way to put it) my sex life and I am so sad. Has anyone else had this problem?
Please don't misunderstand I am so happy to be alive and well but I am so sad about my sex life with my sweet husband who has always been there for me through all of this.

Just wondering if anyone else is having this situation.

Thank you for listening. I wish all of you peace and a friend to talk to .

I must first apoplogize for being so slow in responding...I had read your post a few days ago and fully intended to respond soon, but....I apologize!

What you are experiencing is a very common complaint/challenge for many of our membvers here and on the BC Comminuty main board. With many going through menopause naturally and chemically and an array of other problems, too many of us deal with it.

I can't offer any particular solution, but hope others might. I would also encourage you to post on two other sites: Breast Cancer Community as well as Breast Cancer Treatments - the non-toxic way

I will keep you in my thoughts and hope that soon you will find some helpful ideas!
