How women can resume sexual activity after bone marrow transplant?

Some women might experience vaginal dryness after transplant because of the changes in hormone levels. Water-soluble lubricants such as K-Y® Jelly or Astroglide® can be useful during intercourse to decrease the discomfort of vaginal dryness. Talk with your doctor. He or she may refer you to a gynecologist.

Talk to your partner. Tell your partner how you feel, especially if you have mixed feelings about sex after your transplant. Encourage your partner to communicate with you, especially if you notice changes in your partner’s responsiveness. Communicating with your partner can help you both better understand your feelings and desires.

If your health care provider has told you to limit your sexual activity, or if you are not in the mood for intercourse, remember to take time for intimacy with your partner. Being intimate does not require having intercourse. Love and affection can be expressed in many ways. Enjoy your time together. You can take long, romantic walks, have candlelit dinners, or give each other back rubs.
