    In addition to the importance of faith-based and peer support that was mentioned in many posts, our hospital system has psychologists who specialize in sexuality as well as psychiatrists working specifically with patients who have cancer. This type of support may also assist this partner if she continues to feel conflicted in how she feels about their fertility options.


    Thank you for sharing this. I am going to do some research in my own hospital system to see if we have this specialization as well. Thanks!


    This can be beneficial for the young adults we work with at our center. Unfortunately,  we do not have a psychologist at our cancer center but we can refer out to psychologist at our sister hospital. I will reach out to see what their experience is with sexuality and fertility. Thanks for sharing!
