- Question from Janet W.: Lately I actually want to make love to my partner MORE. Why do you think that is?
- Answers - Marisa Weiss, M.D. I have taken care of a number of women who have experienced this. In my discussion with them, we kind of discovered together that their increased desire represented their need and commitment to feel alive and present in the moment; that sometimes the diagnosis of breast cancer makes you really identify and appreciate the things, the people, the feelings, the words that you cherish most. And for the women I have taken care of, it seems that sex became a highlight, as it was during and after sex that they felt most connected with their partner and most vital and alive.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Intimacy and Sexuality featured Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D., and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answering your questions about how breast cancer diagnosis and treatment affect your sex life.
