As for the supplies themselves, they’re pretty gender universal. A stoma is a stoma is a stoma.
However, there are some products for gender-specific products for female ostomates as far as dressing up the bag:
1) Pouch Covers – St. Louis Medical Supply carries ostomy pouch covers from C&S Pouch Covers, an ostomate-run business providing sets of attractive pouch covers in feminine, masculine and gender-neutral designs.
2) My Heart Ties – This is another product more specific for females and intimacy. I suppose a man could wear one too but I’m sure the consensus is most wouldn’t want to. 🙂
3) Ostomy Clothing / Swimwear – There are a number of vendors selling clothing specific to female ostomates, like Vanilla Blush, a UK based business for lingerie designed with ostomates in mind. Also check out Intimate Moments Apparel and Ostomy Secrets for a selection of womens underwear.
