Question from Jessie: Do some anti-nausea drugs reduce libido? What can be done?
Answers - Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. The drug Compazine (chemical name: prochlorperazine) is the main one that can reduce desire. It increases the hormone prolactin and also can be tranquilizing. The newer anti-nausea drugs may not have many sexual side effects.

The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Sex, Intimacy, and Breast Cancer featured Leslie R. Schover, Ph.D. and Kara Nakisbendi, M.D.answering your questions about sexual side effects of breast cancer and breast cancer treatment, and what you can do about them.
