Pelvic radiotherapy creates both physical effects and psychological responses that negatively affect the sexual health of women and their partners. However, the clinical assessment and management of female sexual difficulties does not receive equivalent professional focus as that of male sexual dysfunction after cancer treatment. The overall aim of this study was to explore the factors that influence the clinical assessment of treatment-induced female sexual difficulties within routine medical follow-up. The purpose of this exploration was to identify the key components of a clinical assessment methodology that could be developed to improve the evaluation of psychosexual morbidity associated with radiotherapy for women with pelvic malignancy.
