Do you have questions about sex after being diagnosed with prostate cancer?

Navigating sexual health after a prostate cancer diagnosis can be a challenging journey, often marked by significant side effects like erectile dysfunction and incontinence. These effects can have a profound impact on a man's sense of self and his intimate relationships. However, it's important to recognize that there are numerous strategies and treatments available to address these issues. 

Open communication with healthcare providers, the exploration of different therapies, and the support of partners and mental health professionals can play pivotal roles in restoring intimacy and confidence. It's a process that requires patience, understanding, and a holistic approach to wellness, acknowledging that sexual health is not just about physical function but also emotional well-being and maintaining a fulfilling life after cancer.
