A 55-year-old male asked:

is it safe to have anal sex after a ileostomy?

Specializes in Family Medicine
Unrelated: Ileostomy is unrelated to the anus. Anal sex can injure the tissues of the anus. Condoms, when used properly, can help protect against sexually transmitted disease ( STD) , but they are not 100% effective.
