Ok folks... I have a question for y'all..... Have any of you cancer survivors (any cancer), that engage in sexual activity had any effects from treatment or the cancer that hinder sexual feelings, performance, enjoyment, etc. Have any of you noticed it takes a bit longer to become aroused, etc? Anyway... I hope you are all having a good day. Take care. God bless.

Hey Michael sorry I havent noticed any differences.... I only had surgery though only thing that used to bother me is my HUGE scar till I realized its nothing to worry about it was just an insecurity cause u see it in a swim suit or some tanks I wear in the summer but im proud of it now. anyway I hope ur enjoying the spring fling and SB!

Well I'm on zoloft have been for quite some time for clinical depression. Increased dosage to handle the ptsd, and added welbutrin. Anyhow, if you read the long and short of things with the zoloft, it's also used for "minute men," (ie premature...)if you get my drift, so it will make you take longer to reach that coital epiphany. I'll leave it at that.

Hi Micheal
I have that problem sometimes to. I found out that alot of medicines can cause that kind of sideeffect. Maybe next time you see your doctor you can ask. If it is a sideffect maybe they can perscribe a simular medicine that doesn't decrease your sex drive. Take care.
