No sex drive

I am a 57 year old female, I had non hodgkins follicular cancer in 2002-2003 and a stem cell transplant in 6/03. I can handle the many side effects from the chemo and transplant, but am having a real hard time dealing with not being able to make love to my husband, he is so patient but I am not. Any advice???

I, too, lost my sex drive at age 45, 2 years ago, after going thru CHOP for NHL. After a blood and saliva test to check my hormone levels, it seems the chemo knocked me totally into menopause. My Dr prescribed bioidentical hormones to get my levels back into the normal range. I feel so much better and so does my drive. Best of luck to you.
