Prostate Cancer UK is starting an on-line group discussion for gay and bisexual men and men who have sex with men. Find out more >>>

Treatment for prostate cancer and effect on your sex life

You can find detailed information elsewhere on this site about treatments available for prostate cancer. In this section we aim to highlight the impact that different treatments for prostate cancer can have on men who have sex with men, compared to men who only ever have sex with women.

Sexual side effects

Treatments for prostate cancer can affect:

  • your desire to have sex (libido)
  • your ability to get an erection (erectile function)
  • your ability to ejaculate and have an orgasm
  • your sexual satisfaction
  • your ability to have children (fertility)
  • how your body looks
  • your relationships

Find out more about the effects of surgery, hormone therapy, radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
