Decreased Sex Drive (Libido)

Reduced sex drive is a common side effect, physical and psychological, of prostate cancer treatment (especially radiation therapy). Men with prostate cancer should not have the usual treatment of testosterone therapy, as it encourages cancer growth.

Consider consulting a professional counsellor or sex therapist, on your own or with your partner, especially if anxiety may be contributing to the erectile dysfunction. A counsellor or therapist can help couples reconnect, communicate and explore different ways to enjoy intimacy.
