A vag laser for better post-cancer sex. Does it work? MonaLisa Touch Review.

“Daammn, I can’t wait to tap that A$$…when you are ready.”

I was in the midst of chemo treatment, laid up on the couch, bald, no eyebrows, fingernails falling off, my breasts cut off and my husband magically knew exactly what I needed to hear. The perfect balance between showing he still found me sexy and simultaneously NOT pressuring me to have sex. 


The long-term sexual side effects from cancer treatments—chemotherapy, Femara/Tomaxifen, a complete hysterectomy—not to mention the emotional side effects of losing one’s breasts and watching your body change, were more intense than I expected or was prepared for. 


Now, three years after my breast cancer diagnosis, I have morphed into a 34-year-old post-menopause woman with a vagina resembling a dried up rubber band that has been left at in the back of a junk drawer for years. Add on a nonexistent sex drive and straight up pain during intercourse, and “tapping that A$$” has become nearly impossible. 


So, I am on a vaginal odyssey to restore my lady bits to their previous glory.


Here is a list of where I have ventured so far:

  • Vaginal Dilators
  • Vaginal Lubricants (Coconut Oil, Sliquid)
  • Vaginal Moisturizer (Replense)
  • 8 weeks of Pelvic Floor Therapy


(For more details about each, you can watch Nora and I talk about it in this archived #WisdomWednesday)
