What is the treatment for cervical cancer?

my girlfriend got checked and found out dat she has cervical cancer 1 month before the wedding. how can we make love safely? is penetration & oral sex safe, as a second question? and how to make it safe? should we wait till she heals? how long does it take to heal? her doctor said she might need a surgery. does it mean she might not? if it does, how and whats the treatment? after the surgery and she gets out of the hospital, can we continue our wedding plans?

Hello. thanks for asking. The treatment of cervical cancer will depend on the stage of disease. if it is very early stage then it can be cured with surgery only. however if it is advanced then she will require chemo and radiation therapy. Yes you can lead a healthy sexual life after the treatment but it will take atleast 4 to 6 months. You can continue your wedding plans after that.
