Excerpt from original source:
It's the kind of thing nobody talks about, the sort of life-altering, debilitating problem you don't know anything about until you're forced to know: the incredible pain and sexual dysfunction in women brought on by cancer treatment and, in many cases, menopause. The side effects of treatment, as well as lack of estrogen, can have a devastating impact on women, and in many ways the health care system is ill equipped to address sexual health in women unrelated to reproduction.
"I think one of the unfortunate things is our society, for very long, has not been open to talk about sex at all," says Margaret Straub, a physician assistant in the UW Radiation Oncology clinic. "This is just another example where it's shied away from, even within the medical community."
