The major issues stem from a lack of certain hormones, like estrogen, that oncologists don't want you to use. Low levels of estrogen can cause vaginal dryness that bothers many women. To relieve that, try a topical lubricant, such as KY or Astroglide, which is nonhormonal and can significantly help intercourse, or a vaginal moisturizer like Replens, which you use a few times a week. You can also ask your doctor about using an estrogen preparation like the Estring, a soft rubber ring (similar to a diaphragm) coated with estrogen that very slowly releases the hormone into the vaginal tissues. This helps moisten the vagina, making intercourse much more comfortable. The ring stays in place for 3 months at a time, and my patients tell me that neither they nor their partners can feel it. What's really nice about this preparation is that it puts zero estrogen into the bloodstream, so women with previous breast cancer can use it.

There is also some data on giving estrogen by mouth or patch to women with previous breast cancer. Although it is controversial, preliminary data reveals no increased rate of recurrence in these women. After extensive discussions with patients, I have occasionally prescribed estrogen to patients with previous breast cancers.

Another possibility is using testosterone to increase libido and sexual response. Many gynecologists believe that testosterone, which is made by our ovaries prior to menopause, is responsible for sex drive, as well as a general sense of well-being in women. Use of testosterone in cream or pill form may help add a bit of "zip." The controversy here is the theoretical conversion by the body of testosterone to estrogen (yes, it really can happen). But in general, most oncologists are okay with its use. Talk with your gynecologist about these possibilities--I really think you can improve your sex life.
