Sex and long term hormone therapy

Two things I can confirm from experience (high dose rate brachytherapy boost 12 years ago plus lots of hormone therapy):

  • Your 'old fella', even if it does not get stiff, still has all its feeling, and orgasms still happen - by self or by partner stimulation;

  • Your partner likely still has a need for attention and intimacy, and will likely be happy to try new ways that you can mutually pleasure each other sexually.

I suggest you seek advice as a couple, before treatment if possible.
