    It has impacted my sex life in a huge way actually. I’m currently going through bcg treatments and the information that my urologist gave me is geared more towards men. One sentence for females and its so vague. And everything I’ve tried to research online for women my age and cancer treatment is slim to none. So there fore, there is no sex for fear of making my partner sick….

      Brandy, we appreciate you sharing here about the impact that bladder cancer has had on your sex life. That is so terrible how the urologist was unable to provide you any information that was geared toward females. We do have some articles related to females. Here are 3:
      Sexual Impact on Women: https://bladdercancer.net/living/sexual-impact-women/
      Dyspareunia and Bladder Cancer: https://bladdercancer.net/living/dyspareunia/
      Radical Cystectomy & Sex: A Woman’s Perspective: https://bladdercancer.net/living/cystectomy-sex-womans-perspective/
      We also welcome your feedback if there are any topics specifically that you would like to learn about. We hope that one day, there will no longer be a gap in the information available to men vs. women. Women like yourself deserve to have more information about this topic. -Sarah (BladderCancer.net Team Member)
