Parastomal Hernia & Sexual Activity.

Posted: Fri Jun 22, 2018 11:05 pm

Is sex and/or masturbation harmful if you have a parastomal hernia. I'm afraid to hear the answers. I'm afraid it's going to be just one less joy. Is it simply a matter of technique or just if it hurts, don't do it? Thanks.

Hello bukowski. I do not believe there is any definitive answer to your question as we are all different in what we do and how our bodies respond to varying activities. Experimentation is possibly the best way forward and if something causes you problems, then modify your approach. If you are worried about the hernia, then it might be a good idea to wear a hernia belt whilst doing strenuous activities.

Best wishes
