Gynecologic Oncology Sexuality Resources

This handout is a recommended list of resources for gynecologic oncology patients and their families. It
is meant to help those with questions or concerns with sexuality. It is not uncommon for women to have
difficulties, short or long term, after treatment for their gynecologic cancer. Patients are encouraged to
speak with their doctor, physician assistant or nurse about any sexuality issues. Please be advised that
this is not a complete list of resources. It is a list we have found helpful for many of our patients. These
resources have been reviewed by our staff.
