Sex Toys and recovery:
Before getting into the toys for women that can boost your sex drive, help with healing, and other sexual tips. We first need to discuss the reasons why womens sex toys are a great resource to include in your breast cancer or menopause recovery process.
Breast cancer treatment can affect the female body in many ways. One thing is for sure cancer and libido don’t mix very well. Breast cancer treatment medications can impact a woman’s hormone production. Their bodies are sore and bruised after breast removal or irritation from menopause symptoms. They also develop a severe drop in hormone levels, and encounter physical body changes. This is where using massagers, vibrators, dilator sets or wearable stimulators can assist with recovery.
Please note: Kissing after chemo; If you are taking oral chemotherapy or IV chemotherapy you should refrain from kissing open-mouthed or oral sex/intercourse, so that your partner is not exposed to the treatment.

Dilators were created for women, by women. This women’s sexual health tool was designed to stretch the vaginal tissues to relief the pains associated to vaginal constriction after breast cancer treatment. As women age, go through cancer chemo or menopause state our uterus and vaginal muscles tend to weaken. Using a dilator can help keep vaginal tissue healthy for pelvic exams and post radiation treatments.

Breast massagers are a great tool for subtle yet pleasurable treatment from muscles soreness and stiffness and can be used to help reduce pain after breast cancer removal, or breast stimulation after menopause. A mastectomy is a surgery procedure to remove a breast or breast tissue such as lymph nodes that contain the cancer disease and are considered life threatening. These surgeries take a long time to heal. Therefore using a breast massager can help minimize pain and speed up healing time.
Clitoral therapy is something that most women would never consider. However, in recent studies it shows that clitoral stimulation also plays a huge part in pelvic floor muscle strengthening. You can use a wand massager to draw blood flow to your clitoral region and increase your secretion levels for sexual pleasure. It also helps with vaginal muscle contraction which promotes healthy vaginal muscle use and tissue.

Kegel Balls/Ben Wa Balls:
Although they are not exactly the same, using a kegel ball or ben wa balls during your pelvic floor muscles exercises can really increase your vaginal health and muscles connected to it.

These muscles are solely responsible for heighten sexual pleasure and strong fulfilling orgasms. A 10-15 minute session daily can increase your sexual drive and boost your moods after breast cancer treatment as they can provide pleasure just as well as exercise.
Pussy pumps, nipple pumps and nipple suckers are a great way to re-introduce your body to heighten sensitivity after breast cancer treatment.
