Leslie R. Schover, PhD, clinical psychiatrist, professor, behavioral science, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, discusses low sexual desire in breast cancer survivors.

Schover says low sexual desire is one of the top two sexual problems in breast cancer survivors as well as all women treated for cancer. Pain and vaginal dryness, the second most common sexual problem, often cause a low sexual desire. However, there are other factors besides pain and vaginal dryness that causes breast cancer survivors to lose interest in sex, Schover says.

Schover believes that this topic is not discussed as much as it should be in clinical settings.
