I have just had my colon removed and an iliostomy placed, and I have heard that I can order small disposable pouches to use during sex, but I can't find anywhere to order them from. Do they really exist? If so, where can I get some from? Thanks!

try hollister. i'm not sure if they have 1 piece mini pouches, but they have some for the 2 piece system. i just got some samples in the mail a few days ago actually. they're not a whole lot smaller than the normal bags, but they're closed (not drainable) so you dont have to worry about the clip/velcro flopping around.

Hi jellybean1887
the 2 piece Convatec system has a closed mini pouch for intimate moments.
Its quite small - a little larger then the size of your palm and is for one time use - you can dispose of it once its full.
I have been able to wear it for up to 3hrs depending on what I ate before putting one on.
Because its so small it has really helped increase my confidence when being intimate.

if you go to www.convatec.com the product name and number is:
sur-fit nautra closed end mini pouch
REF: 401531
the picture online makes it look bigger then it actually is.

Good luck!

Present - on Remicade waiting for surgery to reverse the ileostomy - Health Care System in Canada sucks - wait list is 6 12+ months.

There also undies (crotchless) that hold the bag is place. Sorry, I don't know what the website is but I'm sure someone who reads this will know and ring in....

I know the Edgepark catalog has a section on "intimate" items...

To tell ya' the truth, I left my regular ol' "big" bag on. I personally liked being able to be spontaneous, over changing the bag. I wish I could've had both, but hey, you can't have it all. :P

Thanks for the info! I was thinking that the smaller bags would be good to use while swimming too? Sorry, I am new to this ostomy supply stuff!
