Breast cancer – two little words that can have a massive effect on any woman’s sex life. The medication prescribed for breast cancer and the draining side-effects of treatment can be an even bigger blow to your libido too.
But it doesn’t have to be that way.
Many women, of all ages, suffer with sexual problems after being treated for breast cancer, the most common being vaginal dryness and discomfort.
Sex expert Suzi Godson, recently commented on the issue of sex after breast cancer in The Times and asked for some Lovehoney recommendations to help women conquer the pain that accompanies sex after treatment.
The products that we sent to the lady seeking advice and that we personally recommend include:
- Berman Center Dilator Set
A series of smooth plastic cones that come in different sizes to help stretch the vagina. The Berman Center Dilator Set allows you to start small and slowly progress to bigger sizes, in a comfortable and satisfying way. Made of pure silicone, they are easy and safe to use, even on fragile skin.
- Astroglide Lubricant
A water-based lubricant that is ultra light and super slippery, making it quick and easy to use for lubricant beginners.
- Probe Personal Lubricant Thick
Laboratory formulated to mimic the body’s own natural lubrication, Probe lubricant is ideal for women who have been through breast cancer treatment as it is pH neutral and non-irritating to the delicate skin of the vagina. The thicker formula feels fantastic and can be used for all kinds of sex.
- KY Long Lasting Vaginal Moisturiser
Non-irritating, non-hormonal and fragrance-free, this vaginal lubricant is designed to last for days not minutes! The special applicators dispense a smooth lubricant into the vagina and help to promote vaginal health and completely quell any pain for up to 4 days at a time.

Stress, heavy drinking, smoking, and a lot of spicy, animal or dairy products all affect the way we smell.
Many women think their ladybits are ugly or disfigured - let me reassure you that in 99.9% of cases they’re not, and luckily any man, or same-sex partner, who wants to become intimately acquainted with your nether regions is biologically programmed to find the sight, and smell, extremely arousing.
Could it also be that as your partner is 20 years older than you, he may feel a bit insecure or lack confidence when it comes to having sex with you?
