Prostate Cancer and Sex: Questions to Consider

Ask your partner:

  • How do you feel about our sexual relationship now? What do you value most?
  • Do you have any fears or anxieties about changes?
  • Are you open to making adjustments in our sexual routines?
  • How will you feel if I can no longer get erections like I used to?
  • Do you think our relationship roles will change? How does that make you feel?
  • If I think sex therapy will help us, will you go with me?

Ask yourself:

  • How might cancer treatment affect my masculinity? Will I feel like “less of a man” if I can’t get a firm erection? Will I feel inadequate if I can’t satisfy my partner?
  • What is most important to me in my sexual relationships? Do I think sex equals penetration? Am I willing to try new things? Will kissing, cuddling, and oral sex be enough for my partner and me?
  • Will I be willing to discuss sexual issues and anxieties with my doctor and my partner?
  • Will I be open to seeing a sex therapist? Should I bring my partner with me?
