Hi moe and welcome.

There is a great discussion about sex, intimacy and cancer in the WebMD Breast Cancer Community here:

You are not alone!

Hi moe - I'm sure your doctor has heard of this from many patients and might have some recommendations for medication or other therapies that can help.

Experts WebMD consulted suggest talking to your doctor about several options. Click the link to read about different therapies that might work for you: Revving Up Your Sex Drive

You're not a freak! According to the article, a low sex drive is the most common sexual complaint made by women - up to 30% to 40%!

Have you considered couples therapy to get through this rough patch? There might be other issues going on that need to be addressed.

(((hugs))) to you and please check back in!
