Congrats to BCNA on another great resource available to us...... I have just read a copy of Breast Cancer and Sexual Wellbeing.

It is a topic that is well overdue for discussion in Breast Cancer circles and still a topic that I personally would like to see more discussion about.

The booklet covers a range of topics ranging from menopause symptoms to building a new relationship.

Again well done BCNA!!  You can download a copy from the BCNA website, or order online.

Have a look for yourself, I personally would like to hear what you think.

    Thanks for the info Sam and yes i agree that it is something that we shouldnt be shy about and I guess as a mother, wife, we sometimes dont talk about these issues, and think "Well I should be grateful I am alive etc", but sexuallity has a big effect on so many of us after a BC diagnosis. 

    I personally loved the booklet but would have still liked to see more quotes from younger woman, but that is just me.

    Thanks Tanya

    Hi Meryle,

    I am not sure if you have had a chance to look at our new Local Services Directory (Check it out http://www.bcna.org.au/sharing-support/find-services-your-area ) but it is a great way for you to either search for services in your area or suggest services you have used and want to recommend to others.

    You will be happy to know that there is already a listing for the Living Centre in Melbourne you mentioned - http://www.bcna.org.au/ldirectory/listing/living-centre
