Sex dangerous during chemo?


Question from Lucie: Is it dangerous to have sex during chemotherapy?
Answers - Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. Normally, unless you're having very high doses of chemotherapy so that your counts become really low, it is not dangerous to have sex during chemotherapy. But always ask your oncologist about your individual situation.
