Anorectal Malformations & Hirschsprung's Disease
Loving, making love and sexuality. Everyone needs intimacy. How can an anorectal malformation (anal atresia) or Hirschsprung's disease affect sexuality? What can be different than in others without these conditions? What can you encounter and how can you deal with it? Answers to these and other questions about intimacy, sex, sexuality and sexual development can be found on this website. The original version of this website (in Dutch) was developed by project group 'SO' (Seksuele Ondersteuning anorectale malformatie & ziekte van Hirschsprung) in close collaboration with patients and specialist practitioners in the Netherlands.
