Renewed Sexual Pleasure for Couples Post-Prostate Cancer Treatment - CNL
Erectile dysfunction is an adverse side effect for many prostate cancer patients that often causes unhappiness for the man’s partner as well. Leslie Schover, Ph.D., professor in the Department of Behavioral Science at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, recently completed a clinical trial studying the effectiveness of counseling through face-to-face interaction verses counseling using the Internet only. The study, called Counseling About Regaining Erections and Sexual Satisfaction (CAREss), not only counseled the patient but also the female counterpart with the goal of both partners finding satisfaction through their sexual interaction. Dr. Schover discusses the trial, explains what is next, and offers advice on sexual fulfillment for couples dealing with cancer.
