Abstract: Interviews regarding sexual function were conducted with patients suffering from cervical cancer and who were previously sexually active. Eighty-Seven patients who were treated surgically were compared with 40 patients who had radiotherapy. Both groups had reduced sexual activity and decreased sexual enjoyment although the post-radiotherapy group fared worse. Reasons for not having sexual relations were explored and most cited decreased libido and poor physical condition rather than fear of cancer transmission through sexual activity.
