Women undergoing a cancer diagnosis and management plan want their physicians to raise the issue of sexual function, says Dr. Lindau. And oncologists may refer patients to you specifically for help with addressing those needs. At the annual meeting of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, Dr. Lindau addressed what ObGyns should know about sex and cancer. In this audiocast, she focuses in on improving female sexual function outcomes in the cancer setting, both before and after treatment, and the need to validate patients’ concerns about sexual function when raised.
