Studies have shown that 60% of cancer survivors report sexual dysfunction after treatment and 50% did not bring up this issue to their health care team. On this episode of Frankly Speaking About Cancer, host Kim Thiboldeaux and guest Dr. Leslie Schover, a clinical psychologist who Kim calls the "Dr. Ruth of cancer," discuss specific ways to empower and educate patients about sexual wellness after cancer. Dr. Shover shares with us her new projects, and the campaign “Bring It Up”, to frankly talk about fertility and parenthood after cancer, including new developments and overcoming financial barriers.
