Sexuality & IBD

Sexuality can be a difficult for subject for anybody to bring up and ask questions about. Often, clinic appointments are focused on disease activity and medication.You may have many questions regarding sexual relationships, pregnancy and how having inflammatory bowel disease will affect your future.  You may not feel comfortable discussing with your parents or health care team. You can always ask us questions about this topic, don’t feel shy. We admit that we sometimes forget to ask!
