Got A Question About Sex Or Intimacy After Young Adult Cancer?

Have you ever found yourself wanting to ask your doctor a more *cough* intimate question but then chicken out last minute?  Goodness gracious, I know I have.  Whether it was about an intimate moment going a different way than I’d planned or a sensitive area that just didn’t feel the way it used to before young adult cancer, sometimes it’s hard to work up the courage to ask.

Now you can anonymously ask your question to Dr. Anne Katz, our very own Awkward Auntie!  She’s a certified sexuality counselor and nurse who has written a couple of books about young adults and cancer* – and all the things that happen to your body, relationships, and sex during and after treatment.  She will be answering any and all questions that you send to or that you submit in the form below. You don’t have to give your name or other identifying information – but it might be helpful for her to know how you identify yourself by gender, your age and what kind of cancer and treatment you had.

YOU CAN ASK HER ANYTHING…. Don’t hold back!  Your questions will be answered periodically and posted here, on our Awkward Auntie page.

Send your questions to or submit them anonymously in the form below and watch this space for the answers.

(Lacuna Loft considers anyone diagnosed with cancer, at any stage of the experience, to be a survivor!)
