Breast Cancer Survivorship
While we do not treat breast cancer at Ideal Gynecology, we specialize in helping women with the transition to life not just without estrogen but on antiestrogens. Ho flashes, vaginal dryness and loss of libido are some of the most disturbing problems that women face with their initial diagnosis and treatment as well as survivorship. We want to help make your life as fun and fulfilling as it was before.
Dr. Schapiro is a breast cancer survivor and regularly lectures on sexual health for the Piedmont Survivorship program. An unfortunate side effect of antiestrogens is vaginal dryness and contraction. We can direct you to non-estrogen and non-phytoestrogens lubricants, dilators and pelvic therapy to help with relaxation.
