I have had an ileostomy for a little over a year. I just got involved in a physical relationship a few months ago. There are really no physical problems with sex , it is all in my own mind.

He says that it does not bother him and that he does not even think about it and does not see the bag as part of who I am. It is me and my own thoughts that bother me. I just feel so insecure about it. If he touches me and accidentally touches the bag I cringe because I feel that it must be gross to him even if he wont say so. I am sure that these feelings are pretty normal for a person like me , I just wonder if there are any others out there who have the same issues and if you can give me some advice on overcoming my insecurities about it?
