Abstract

Due to improved survival rates many women have been left with chronic problems following treatment for a gynaecological cancer. These include psychosexual issues, premature menopause and infertility. Common sexual problems may result from low self-esteem, loss of femininity, vaginal stenosis and dryness. In the UK, clinical nurse specialists are recognized as key members of the multidisciplinary teams required to care for women diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. Their role in providing information and support with special reference to psychosexual problems is examined.
