JC_FERRERO - I have found anal sex to be fine..as long as I am in remission. Otherwise, it doesnt bear thinking about
. Sometimes, I would use a steroid enema afterwards..just in case!
Also, once I thought I was in reasonable health and that i would be fine to have anal sex. But, after the event I discovered that I wasnt. And to my horror, I got an anal fissure. Cue 6 months of horrendous pain and misery - that was worse than any UC flare. Anyone who has experienced a fissure will know what I am talking about. The problem is, if you have any sort of inflammation lower down, regardless of how mild it be, your internal tissue is highly susceptible to tear, resulting in an anal fissure. It happened to me - twice. Never again. I refuse to risk that sort of pain again.
SO, as long as you are sure you're not inflamed around your bottom, and you use loads of lube, you should be okay.
PS - I cant wait for Wimbledon!
