Two doctors counsel a patient in a clinic room

It can be difficult to regain intimacy during cancer treatment and survivorship. Because sexual dysfunction after cancer is common for both men and women, the Sexuality & Intimacy Program - the only one of its kind in the country - is here to help.

You'll work with Yale Medicine urologists and OB/GYNs, who work collaboratively with individuals and couples to help restore intimacy in relationships. For men, prostate and bladder cancer treatments are most likely to affect sexuality. For women, gynecologic and breast cancer treatment can interfere with body image and normal sexual function.

Our doctors work with patients and their medical oncologists to help minimize these effects so that people can restore their sex lives after cancer. We also help address fertility issues that survivors may experience, as well as provide counseling services.
