Pain during intercourse normal after chemo?


Question from Cookie: From the chemo, I have a lot of pain during intercourse. Is this normal?
Answers - Ann Berger Yes, because there is more vaginal dryness. You can use lubrications. Chances are the chemotherapy put you into a menopausal state.
Marisa Weiss, M.D. You can find a lot of information about how to handle painful sex and a dry vagina at Breastcancer.org in the section on menopause. We also had online conferences on this subject.

On Wednesday, April 17, 2002, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Breast Cancer Pain. Ann Berger, R.N., M.S.N., M.D. and Marisa Weiss, M.D. answered your questions about managing pain caused by breast cancer and breast cancer treatments.
