PD & Body Image and Sexual Concerns

Is anyone on PD willing to share his or her thoughts about how to address patients’ concerns about body image and/or sexual functioning that may be keeping them from trying PD?

Getting the catheter really bothered me at first, but then I realized I could honestly tell women that I had a 14" hose in my pants!!! :wink:

Having a sense of humor helps too!


Hi y’all,

Love the positive attitude in the last post! Humor is VERY attractive. : )

The Sexuality and Fertillity module of the Life Options Kidney School (http://www.kidneyschool.org) is a great place to learn more about how other folks deal with body image and sexuality issues related to PD or HD.
