According to the American Cancer Society, it's projected that roughly 14,500 new cases of cervical cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2021. Fortunately, cervical cancer is much easier to cure when caught early, and increased use of the Pap test to find problematic cells in the cervix has improved cervical cancer survival rates over the years.

However, cervical cancer survivors know that treatment and recovery are no walk in the park. Whether you opted for radiation, surgery or some combination of both, each treatment presents its own set of challenges post-cervical cancer.

Being mindful of the ways your body may have changed is crucial when thinking about resuming your sex life.
