A 45-year-old member asked:

Is sex less enjoyable when you have a hormone related breast lump?

Yes: Women need to be relaxed to enjoy sex. If you are worried about anything it is difficult to relax. Breast pain also makes it difficult to enjoy sex. If you are taking hormones see your doctor- you may need a dosage adjustment.
