Dating sites for ostomates reality dating shows history
If my vague story isn’t enough to convince you, I encourage you to read It’s In The Bag and Under the Covers by Brenda Elsagher.
It’s a collection of stories told by ostomates and their partners about dating and intimacy and it’s really encouraging.

If things don’t work out because of your ostomy, thank it, because you want to be with someone who is as strong as you and can be supportive.
If you belong to an affiliated group that has a website but we haven’t included you on this page, please let us know so we can add a link to your site.
The UOAA has put together a really in depth and informative guide for intimacy with an ostomy.
It covers sex and how our bodies work during sex, common sexual problems, talking with your partner, effects of medicines on sex, and has other helpful hints.
