Cancer treatment

Side Effects of Cancer Treatments

Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.

Whether from personal experience or through a friend or relative, many of us know the brutal side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. These commonly include hair loss, nausea, constipation and diarrhoea, but another side effect of cancer treatments is vaginal dryness, as the chemicals play havoc with your body’s natural hydration and pH balance.

For more severe symptoms and side effects during cancer treatment, prescription dilators can be required to maintain your delicate vaginal area. Sylk’s natural lubrication helps insertion with confidence and no ‘ouch-factor’.
