Anyone else find that IBS really puts a damper on your intimate life? I'm female and married. My hubby's very supportive, but I think he thinks I just use IBS as an excuse to avoid intimacy.We've only been having couple-time about once a month since I started developing IBS symptoms, and I'm really anxious about all of it. I'm always worried that I'll pass gas during sex or that my tummy-rumblings will be too distracting. When I'm constipated, it hurts really bad to have intercourse. Does that happen to anyone else?And this is probably WAAAAAAY TMI, but there are certain activities that my hubby has been wanting to try that I can't do because I've got awful hemorrhoids. I'm only 23 and my husband is my first and only serious intimate relationship. It's really distressing, because I'll only be young once and I want to be able to enjoy intimacy while I can. I feel totally un-sexy because of my perpetually dysfunctional digestion. There's nothing hot about IBS.
