Counseling After Prostate Cancer Improves Sex

Prostate cancer treatment can be rough on a couple’s sex life, but a new study that looked at couples counseling — offered face-to-face and online — found it can improve physical relations.

The findings, reported in the journal Cancer, suggest such counseling offers benefits beyond what drugs, including erectile dysfunction medication, can provide, msnbc.com reports.

The study involved 115 couples, each including a prostate cancer survivor who had undergone treatment less than two years earlier. Some of the couples saw therapists in person, while others were counseled online. All the couples answered questionnaires that gauged their sexual satisfaction and function before and after the sessions.

The couples reported that both types of therapy boosted men’s sexual function and satisfaction, and as a man’s score improved so did the woman’s.
