AbstractReports on sexual functioning following treatment for carcinoma of the cervix are many and the results are conflicting. The modalities of treatment have been considered to play a significant role. A study of 99 patients showed that 20 (20.2%) of them became sexually inactive after treatment. For those who remained sexually active, the degree of change of sexual functioning did not vary significantly between patients who were treated by radiotherapy, by surgery or by a combination of the 2 methods. Despite physical changes in the vagina following irradiation, it did not seem to be the major cause of sexual dysfunction in patients who received radiotherapy. It is apparent that alteration in sexual functioning has a multifactorial basis.
