 Gina Maisano, author of "Intimacy After Breast Cancer: Dealing with Your Body, Relationships, and Sex."
 Thinking Out Loud  
While the medical community has succeeded in helping more women survive for 15, 20, 30 years and longer after a breast cancer diagnosis, few experts have focused on the sexual health and well-being of women survivors.

Two-time breast cancer survivor Gina Maisano says when women complete their treatment, they are often left with physical and emotional scars; poor body image; side effects that alter appearance, libido, and sexual enjoyment; and partners who may need help regaining interest.

In a groundbreaking new book called Intimacy after Breast Cancer (Square One Publishers, 2010), Maisano offers fellow survivors strategies to reclaim their looks, confidence, and sexual health so they can enjoy a fulfilling love life.

Maisano shares 7 ways to reclaim your sensual self, and can also discuss:
Post-traumatic stress disorder -- a hidden epidemic among breast cancer survivors
Medications and conditions that affect libido and sexual enjoyment in survivors
Why women gain, rather than lose, weight following chemo -- and how to reverse it
How to help with your partner's guilt, fear, loss of libido, and other intimacy issues
Real-life stories of survivors and their battle to recover their sexual lives
