The Lovin' Ain't Over for Women with Cancer takes a frank and open approach to discussing the issues with sexuality and intimacy that many women experience after undergoing cancer treatment. It guides women and their partners with facts, knowledge and techniques that have worked for other women, and strategies recommended by top health professionals.

The book takes a holistic view of creating a good sex life after female cancer treatment. It recognizes that a strong sense of self, and good communication between the partners, are essential to a happy and satisfying sexual experience, and gives pointers and examples to help on that path. It provides facts about women's bodies and sexual function, and the effects of cancer therapies. It covers information about aids and medications in understandable language. It contains many practical suggestions and examples from women who have gone through the experience of breast and gynecological cancers, and strategies recommended by top sexual health professionals.
