Suggest Remedy For Having Active Sexual Life After Treatment Of Hodgkins Lymphoma

Hello,
Im after some advise really
Im 24 I have been having chemotherapy for hodgkins lymphoma for the last 3 years and last september i had a bone marrow transplant from donor cells, all through the treatment i was still having my periods but last year they put me on a tablet which stopped me from bleeding as it was too dangerous. when i stopped this tablet at christmas time i bleed but havent since. the doctors are still hopeful my periods will return and have said i can start taking my contraceptive pill as soon as they do but me and my boyfriend of 4 years both hate using condoms and get no enjoyment out of them and therefore we havent been having a love life really and i dont want to wait up to the year the hospital is saying what are my options?

Hello,

You have to stick to some form of contraception till the specified period by your oncologist. Condom is the best form.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
