I am in my early 40's and introducing my "medical handicap" (pouch) to a new guy in my life is very challenging when the relationship turns intimate. In coming into a new relationship I still haven't figured out #1 how to tell a guy I have this pouch on my belly with poop in it and #2 how to stop the noise of constant gas (the quiet moments are the worst!) and #3 how to keep from stinking up his bathroom no matter how
much odor drops I use and lastly #4 what to use to cover my pouch or how to keep it from flopping all over during intercourse. Luckily I have had a very understanding ex but now it's time to drop the bomb all over again and it's frightening!!
crohn's for 22yrs, 5 bowel resections, reaction to remicade.
