Research led by SPPD Professor Howard Greenwald was featured in a United Press International story. Greenwald and colleagues found evidence that sexual enjoyment involves more than hormones, the story reported. The scientists conducted their research on cervical cancer survivors who had had both ovaries removed. The study found that after six years, most survivors’ sexual desire and enjoyment rebounds, the story noted.
