  • Overview

    Sex is the last issue on a woman's mind after being diagnosed with cancer or facing a hysterectomy. Studies show that only half of gynecologists bring up the issue prior to a hysterectomy and only 13 percent of patients have the guts to ask their doctor about it. So, how do doctors bring up the issue, and when in their patients' recovery is it appropriate to bring it up? Host Dr. Lauren Streicher and Dr. Laura Berman, assistant clinical professor at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, discuss the protocol for bringing up sexual dysfunction, body image after surgery and medication used to treat sexual dysfunction in women.
