Has your cancer treatment changed the look of your outer genitals in any way? If so, take time to get used to the changes. Check to see if any areas are sore or tender. Share what you learn about yourself with your partner. Work together to have sex that pleases you both.
In order to talk about sex, it helps to know about the structures and hormones that are also involved with having children and how they work together. During the years when a woman can have children, her ovaries take turns each month producing a ripe egg. When the egg is released, it travels through the fallopian tube into the uterus. A woman can get pregnant naturally if a sperm cell travels through the cervix and s the egg.
The cervix is the gateway for sperm to get into the body and for a baby passing out of the body at birth. If she gets pregnant, the lining stays in place to feed the growing baby. The regular cycles the mature female body goes through each month are controlled by hormones. The main hormones that may help a woman feel desire are called estrogens and androgens.
About half of the androgens in women are made in the adrenal glands that sit on top of the kidneys. Estrogen comes mostly from the ovaries. The ovaries usually stop sending out eggs and greatly reduce their hormone output around age 50, though the age varies. Still, it can take longer for the vagina to enlarge and get moist.
Low estrogen levels can also cause the lining of the vagina to get thinner and lose some of its ability to stretch.
In some women, the vagina may stay tight and dry, even if they are very aroused. As a woman becomes sexually excited, her nervous system sends als of pleasure to her brain. The als may trigger the orgasm reflex. During orgasm, the muscles around the genitals contract in rhythm.
The muscle tension and release sends waves of pleasure through the genital area and sometimes over the entire body. An orgasm is a natural reflex, but most women need some experience in learning to trigger it. As she gets older, orgasms may take longer to reach, and more mental excitement and touching may be needed. There are many sources of excitement that lead to orgasm.
They differ for each woman. A few women can reach orgasm just by having a vivid fantasy about sex or by having their breasts stroked.
Others have had an orgasm during a dream while asleep. But most women need some caressing of their genitals to reach orgasm. When a woman becomes sexually excited, the entire genital area swells. It also turns a darker pink as blood rushes in under the skin. Many women reach orgasm most easily when the clitoris is stroked. Like a penis, the clitoris has a head and a shaft.
Soreness can be prevented by using a lubricant and by stroking or touching close to, but not on, the head of the clitoris. Other areas, including the outer lips and anus, can also give a woman pleasure when stroked. The opening of the vagina contains many nerve endings. For some women, the front wall of the vagina is more sensitive to pressure during sex than the back wall.
Some sex therapists suggest that stroking an area about 1 to 4 inches deep on the front wall of the vagina helps some women reach orgasm during sex. Learn as much as you can about the possible effects your cancer treatment may have on your sex life. Talk with your doctor, nurse, or any other member of your cancer care team. When you know what to expect, you can plan how you might handle those issues. Keep in mind that, no matter what kind of cancer treatment you get, most women can still feel pleasure from touching.
Few cancer treatments other than those affecting some areas of the brain or spinal cord damage the nerves and muscles involved in feeling pleasure from touch and reaching orgasm. For example, a woman whose vagina is painfully tight or dry can often reach orgasm through stroking of her breasts and outer genitals.
Try to keep an open mind about ways to feel sexual pleasure. Some couples have a narrow view of what normal sex is. If both partners cannot reach orgasm through or during penetration, some may feel disappointed. But during and after cancer treatment, there may be times when the kind of sex you like best is not possible.
Those times can be a chance to learn new ways to give and receive sexual pleasure. You and your partner can help each other reach orgasm through touching and stroking. At times, just cuddling can be pleasurable. You could also continue to enjoy touching yourself. Do not stop sexual pleasure just because your usual routine has been changed.
Try to have clear, 2-way talks about sex with your partner and with your cancer care team. Talk to your team about sex, and tell your partner what you learn. Good communication is the key to adjusting your sexual routine when cancer changes your body.
If you feel weak or tired and want your partner to take a more active role in touching you, say so. Keep in mind that if one partner has a sex problem, it affects both of you. Boost your self-esteem. Remind yourself about your good qualities. If you lose your hair, you may choose to wear a wig, hat, or scarf if it makes you feel more comfortable. Do whatever makes you feel good about yourself. Eating right and exercising can also help keep your body strong and your spirits up.
