Is it ok to have sex doing chemo ?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Blood Cancers & Disorders Support Group.

Welcome to Connect, @cattarms2024 It’s always best to ask your oncologist about having sexual relations while you’re in treatment. Depending on the chemo used, your immune system can be compromised and the risk for infection rises. However, with precautions it may be ok to do so. I found a few articles that might offer some information for you. Those links are below.

We also have several members in our forum who have Follicular Lymphoma if you’d like to be able to chat with others who have your similar diagnosis.
This would be a good place to start with members @valandsheri, @vonbaron36 @bogie60 @lee59 @susanlim @caracello22.
Starting bendamustine and rituxin for Follicular Lymphoma.
