Sex positions after cervical cancer

Hi my names Nikki and I’m 27 years old, I’m new to this forum so hoping someone could help.

I was diagnosed 2 years a go with stage 2b cervical cancer. I had radiotherapy,chemotherapy and brachytherapy. I’m now in remission.

For the first time since treatment I had sex and unfortunately perforated my cervix during it. I was told this was because the tissues were so damaged by all the treatment. I’ve been told my sex life will have to change completely as this could happen again.

Has anyone else had this? If so how do you cope? Are there certain positions I need to do to reduce the risk of it happening again?

Thank you in advance :heart:


Hi Nikki,

Congratulations on hitting remission! I don’t have an exact answer, nor do I have exactly the same issues but I do experience pain from deep penetration and have found a few different positions really helped me…

  1. Me on top
  2. Spooning sex
  3. Doggy, but gentle
  4. Standing up, bent over

Also found exploring more ways to have sex without penetration have been fun :slight_smile:

Hope things get better and that you can enjoy yourself without fear of damage
