Hurts So Good: How Pain Disorders Can Affect Your Sexuality
August 5, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Just as it affects most aspects of life, chronic pain and illness can have a significant impact on your sex life too! From re-learning how to relate to your body after diagnosis to conversations with partners and healthcare providers, there is very little education provided to chronic pain/illness community about how to navigate sexual health and pleasure. In this session we will address the challenges of living chronic conditions and provide ideas on how to self-advocate and communicate needs and boundaries. Attendees will participate in active discussion and come away with a better understanding of how pain affects sexuality, ways to offer support and guidance to those in pain, and more.
