WomanLab is a platform where every woman – and everyone who loves and cares for women – can learn truths about sex.
Our first deep dive? Sex and cancer.
Most women with cancer have a cancer that comes from or affects the sexual organs like the breasts, uterus and ovaries. Cancer and its treatment can make it hard to have sex. Loss of sexual function is a health problem for many women with cancer and their partners. Sexual function can be preserved and restored after cancer, but not if nobody is talking about it.
WomanLab is talking about it.
We are scientists, doctors and therapists, patients and partners who believe that sexual function is a basic human function for people of all ages and health conditions, races and ethnicities, gender and sexual identities, abilities and experiences. We believe, by spreading truths about sex, that most women with cancer can preserve their sexual function. Most women with sexual function problems after cancer can recover their function.
WomanLab combines the power of knowledge with the power of women so every woman affected by cancer knows what she needs to know to preserve and recover her sexual function.
WomanLab is for:
- Women at increased risk for cancer
- Women with a new cancer diagnosis
- Women in treatment
- Women who have completed treatment
- Partners of people with cancer
- Everyone who loves women
- Everyone who cares for women
"It would have been nice if someone said, 'If something should happen with your sexual function, we are here.'"
