In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of reproductive-aged women who have undergone special antitumor treatment for the early stages of endometrial cancer and borderline ovarian tumors. Thanks to the possibilities of current methods for diagnosis and treatment, the patients receive highly qualified assistance to improve the prognosis of disease. This determines the actualization of the problem associated not only with the duration, but also quality of life in these patients. To improve the above indicators, it is necessary to introduce a package of rehabilitation measures to restore sexual function, which can be provided within the framework of a multidisciplinary approach.
