Diverticulitis

Megan Jean Megan Jean
Diverticulitis is small, bulging sacs or pouches of the inner lining of the intestine (diverticulosis) that become inflamed or infected.
My sister has this, and is in a relationship with a guy who loves anal sex.
I'm curious, does anyone on here have this ailment, and if so, is it safe to engage in anal sex?

well, the most common places for the pouches to occur is on the sigmoid colon, while during anal sex, the penis really shouldn't be penetrating far enough to reach the sigmoid colon. these pouches in the rectum are very rare, so i don't think that anal sex would directly affect the diverticulitis.



BUT if she has bad symptoms like GI upset, bleeding, etc. i would stay away from anal sex, because this could just further irritate her condition.

Oof, that's rough! My mom had Diverticulitis (and Endomitriosis), and ended up having to have surgery to get part of her colon removed. It was actually sortof funny, because the doctor said she couldn't go home until she farted. It took a week.
Sadly, I can't advise whether or not anal with diverticulitis is safe. I can say that cutting out nuts and grains will help prevent material from building up within the pockets.

I do not have any firsthand experience on the matter, but one thing I can say is that since the risk of infection is higher, inserting ANYTHING into the anus is going to bring germs in, and since skin is porous it is not 100% sterilizeable, and while it may not be a major risk, it is best to take every precaution available to prevent against infection and secondary issues such as surgery requirement if it doesn't respond well to antibiotics or becomes too swollen from the irritation of additional bacteria, etc.

Diverticulitis affects the upper intestines so anal sex wouldn't affect the diverticuli in any fashion. If, however, she is suffering from frequent bouts of diarrhea then she might want to consider taking a fiber supplement and wait until she has cleared it up to try anal sex without a condom. We find that deposits left during a bout can cause burning of the penis...gross I know but still...
The worse thing you can do when the diverticuli are inflammed is eat complex hard to digest foods so a bland diet is recommended until you are free of pain and then slowly bulking up the stools so that the colon is uniformly full and evenly working.
Ignoring the problem can lead to necrosis of the colon and possible surgery to remove the dead tissue so if you have pain under the ribs, frequent constipation or diarrhea, accompanied with fever then see a doctor.

An interesting thing to note is the susceptibility of developing diverticuli is probably genetic and more prevalent in women....possibly related to hormones. Western and European women tend to develop the diverticuli on one side wheile Asian women tend to develop them on the other side!

Either way it is safe to have anal sex if you have diverticuli or have had diverticulitis.

Also Diverticulosis is the advanced inflammation of the diverticuli not a description of the sacs themselves. Diverticulitis is an inflammation or infection while diverticulosis is chronic infection requiring intervention beyond a course of antibiotics and dietary change.
