Interventions for sexual problems following treatment for breast cancer: a systematic review.


Sexual functioning is an important element of quality of life. Many women experience sexual problems as a result of a breast cancer diagnosis and its treatment. Little is known about the availability and the effectiveness of interventions for sexual problems in this patient population. Six electronic databases were searched using Medical Subject Headings and keywords. Additional hand searching of the references of relevant papers was also conducted. The searches were conducted between October 2010 and January 2011. Papers were included if they evaluated interventions for sexual problems caused as a result of breast cancer or its treatment. Studies were only included if sexual functioning was reported using a patient-reported outcome questionnaire. Studies were excluded if sexual functioning was measured but improving sexual problems was not one of the main aims of the intervention. 3514 papers were identified in the initial search. 21 papers were selected for inclusion. Studies were of mixed methodological quality; 15 randomised trials were identified, many included small sample sizes and the use of non-validated questionnaires. Three main types of interventions were identified: Exercise (2), medical (2) and psycho-educational (17). The psycho-educational interventions included skills-based training such as problem-solving and communication skills, counselling, hypnosis, education and specific sex-therapies. Interventions were delivered to individual patients, patients and their partners (couple-based) and groups of patients. The widespread methodological variability hinders the development of a coherent picture about which interventions work for whom. Tentative findings suggest the most effective interventions are couple-based psycho-educational interventions that include an element of sexual therapy. More methodologically strong research is needed before any intervention can be recommended for clinical practice. Improved screening and classification of sexual problems will ensure interventions can be more effectively targeted to suit individual patient needs.

Health: Science or art

When a person considers whether maintaining health is a science or art, they normally consider the cultural or prevailing wisdom of the dominant medical institutions. Those institutions, which have legal sanction in our present society, include practitioners who primarily think of themselves as scientists. This is because they have received training that is flavored by scientific tradition. What most people do not realize is that medicine comes in a number of variations. Many of them have roots that precede the establishment of Western scientific thinking. On the other hand, despite the fact...

Medications and Treatments for Anxiety

When excessive worry interferes with your ability to function, then you medical doctors or psychologists may determine that you are suffering from an anxiety. If you do not respond to psychotherapy or counseling, medical doctors may prescript one of several medications. I’ve researched these meds and wish to share with you what I found out. GABAPENTIN (brand names: Neurontin, Gabarone) Although specifically approved only for use in the treatment of epilepsy and post-herpetic neuralgia (pain following shingles), Neurontin is widely used to treat anxiety disorders. However, although...

What are warts?

One of the most undisputed, but unusual, fact is that hypnosis can often be used to successfully get rid of warts. This is because warts are caused by a very specific said of human viruses. The presumption has always been that the use of hypnosis for medical applications is rather limited to only psychosomatic illnesses. However, warts are most deftly not the result of all-the-mind, psychosomatic disorders. One of the earliest cases involving warts being removed to the use of hypnosis happened during World War II. In that case, a medical doctor used the power of suggestion to facilitate...
