Cancer treatments can come with a variety of physical and emotional side effects. As awkward as it may be to talk about, that includes side effects that might change our ability to have or enjoy sex. On this episode, Joanne Rash talks about why treatments like chemotherapy and radiation can affect sexuality, some of the most common sexual health concerns she sees in her patients, and how she helps them approach intimacy in new ways. Joanne is a physician’s assistant in the UW Carbone Cancer Center. She specializes in gynecologic oncology, and co-founded the Women’s Integrative Sexual Health Clinic.
