Treatment for cervical cancer can have an effect on your sex life.
If you have not yet had your menopause you might find that your treatment brings on an early menopause. This will happen if you have:
your ovaries removed with surgery
Your surgeon might suggest leaving your ovaries behind if you haven’t had your menopause, but that is not always possible. Having your ovaries removed will cause an immediate menopause.
Radiotherapy will cause an early menopause because it stops your ovaries from working. Ovaries produce sex hormones. They stop producing these hormones at the natural menopause.
For some women it is possible to move the ovaries out of the area where you are having radiotherapy (the radiotherapy field). Your surgeon can do this with keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery. This might help to prevent you from going through an early menopause. Your doctor will discuss if this is an…
Cancer of the cervix is relatively rare, accounting for less than 1 percent of all new cancer diagnoses. The American Cancer Society estimates 13,800 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2020.
What causes cervical cancer?
The cervix is a small, narrow, tube-like organ at the bottom of the uterus that connects to the vagina. The cervix is the passage through which sperm travels to the uterus and menstrual fluid flows out. It also dilates during labor to allow a baby to pass through the birth canal.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that more than 90 percent of all cervical cancers are caused by a human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Not every woman who has HPV will develop a cervical tumor, though treatment with the HPV vaccine is known to help prevent cancer of the cervix.
Who gets cervical cancer?
Story of Mary Lewis
After a radical hysterectomy, the last thing on your mind would be sex, right? Looking back, it was probably on my mind a lot more than I realised.
I was 36 and my husband was 32 when my routine smear found that I had cervical cancer. It was 27 October 2009 and we had been married for just over two years after 16 years as a couple. We had a 15-year-old son and the diagnosis meant we would have no more children. We had been through many miscarriages so having more children wasn’t meant to be. However, when you’re told you can’t have something, you suddenly start thinking that you want it. It took maybe a 10-minute discussion to decide that we needed me healthy and thinking about having eggs frozen wasn’t important.
“Sex was an important part of our relationship”
We were still relatively young…
Silent but deadly. These are words often used to describe cervical cancer — a slow-growing disease that rarely causes symptoms in its early stages.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, each year more than 11,000 women in the United States are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and for some it will be too late to receive effective treatment.
What causes cervical cancer?
Cervical cancer is almost always caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) — the most common sexually transmitted infection in the United States. Affecting approximately 79 million Americans, HPV can be detected in 93 percent of all cervical cancers.
Yet the virus alone is not sufficient to cause cervical cancer. Other contributing factors include the following:
A weakened immune system
“HPV is very common; up to 80 percent of sexually active people have been exposed at some point in their lives,” says Summer Dewdney, MD,…
There are a few cervical cancer facts you need to know. This includes potential symptoms, signs, and hints that you might want to talk to your doctor as soon as possible.
There are so many different reasons why a woman might feel pain during intercourse. The most obvious solution is that there is not enough lubrication. If the muscles are relaxed, the pain should go away. Foreplay is an excellent way to get in the mood and enjoy your time to the fullest.
But if the pain continues regardless of the arousal levels, it might be a sign that something is going on with the body. Experiencing pain and discomfort during sex should be a clear sign to visit a doctor. While the situation doesn’t need to be dire, it can still point to a variety of conditions, from yeast infections to cervical cancer. So, the smartest…
One could argue that we’ve come a long way in terms of our sexualities. However, some things remain as popular as they were throughout history. Dressing up in a catsuit and role-playing as a kinky kitten sums up female eroticism, regardless of whether you enjoy being a dominant or submissive partner. So let’s explore the world of pet play, in particular, the kitten play community.
Kitten play: What is it?
Namely, kitten play is a category of animal/pet role-playing. It works as a dom/sub relationship where the dominant partner is the handler, and the other one is the kitten. The whole point is for the sub to get into the headspace of the animal, playing the role not just by looking like a cat, but also by acting like one.
To make kitten play work, people use accessories and sex toys, such as anal tail plugs, collars, bowls, masks, fluffy…
When you are in a relationship, to give sexual satisfaction to your partner is most important. If you are not satisfied with the sex capacity of your partner, then sex toys are mad for you. We face many situations in life when, due to any reason, we don’t live with our partner. If we are not staying with the partner doesn’t mean we will not have the sex desire. Sex is a common intuition; it can arise anytime and anywhere to see an attractive person. We cannot have sex with everyone to whom we meet.
If we are serious in a relationship, but our partner is not close to us. Sex toys will be an excellent option for such a situation. Many types of sex toys can give you the real satisfaction of sex. When we use sex toys for having sex, we feel we are with real men and…
The name arouses interest, the form looks mysterious, but the advertising photos make one or the other shy away. Completely wrongly, because love balls, sometimes called joy balls, vaginal balls, lust balls, yoni eggs or geisha balls, serve primarily to strengthen the pelvic floor and are used in urinary incontinence, bladder weakness or even weak orgasm .
The structure of classic love balls is explained quite quickly: two larger hollow balls made of skin-friendly material each carry a heavy steel ball in the interior which provide movement by vibration. The balls are connected to each other and have a return strap or a loop to be easily removed again.
How does love balls work?
In most love balls hide smaller steel balls , which by their own weight and the movements (walking, running, etc.) bounce against the inside of the pleasure balls and thus impart an impulse to the surrounding…

Bondage, discipline, domination, submission, sadism and masochism combined into one abbreviation, are considered ambiguous sexual practices – not so much because of the reputation of cruel and dangerous hobbies, but because of ethical issues embedded in the very idea of ??domination and subordination. For our part, we believe in the idea of deliberate choice, especially when it comes to experiments with the sensitivity of the body, and not the psyche – all the more so that the main rules in BDSM are safety, rationality and voluntariness.
However, these rules do not guarantee security in bad or inexperienced hands.
