Changed and impacted sexuality from cancer treatments is one of the most common challenges people face, yet is one of the most under-addressed. Cancer treatments and the side effects they can cause such as painful penetration, dryness, atrophy and vulvovaginal pain, impacts all aspects of our lives, so why is no one talking about the more 'intimate' struggles we face? Why is sex and cancer such an ignored topic? If you've received a cancer diagnosis and are suffering vaginal or vulva dryness and pain, this book offers practical support and solutions to recover and increase your sex, sexuality and intimacy during and after cancer treatments. Addressing topics such as; when and how is intimacy and sex possible, managing and recovering from dryness, how to heal vaginal atrophy, healing pain, managing painful sex and painful penetration, everything you need to know about lubricants and internal moisturisers, positioning, recovering sensitivity, recovering orgasm and more.

This bite-sized book in the 'A Better Normal' mini-book series is core information from the sexuality and cancer guide 'A Better Normal; Your Guide to Rediscovering Intimacy After Cancer'. Small enough to read in one sitting, this book is a must-have for anyone impacted by cancer treatments who may need support, because we all deserve love and connection. Written by a sexuality occupational therapist, somatic sexologist and a sexuality educator, who also has had cancer, this book is filled with practical information and ways you can reconnect with yourself and/or a partner, from someone who's literally been there. With down to Earth humour mixed in with a dash of neuroscience, Tess offers a positive path to your body confidence recovery, to recover what you thought was lost.

If you're experiencing other side-effects (drops in libido, changes in erection, changes in your body confidence, fatigue etc), or need sexual supports that are treatment specific (radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy), take a look at the other mini-books in the 'A Better Normal' series. If you're after all of the sexuality and cancer information you need in one place, see 'A Better Normal; Your Guide to Discovering Your Intimacy After Cancer'. The larger all-in-one sexuality resource that has all of the mini-book series content (and more).
