Becci shares her story about sex and an insulin pump mishap! 

 

 

"I had to drive a half hour home to get a new pod, which is why you should always carry spares, and then drive back. It's a bit of a passion killer!"

Type 1 blogger Jen Grieves shares her awkward Type 1 moment!

 

"Type 1 diabetes is pretty embarrassing at times, and sex is also pretty embarrassing at times so the two kind of go hand in hand I think!"

Jen


If you are currently using insulin pens and one of your concerns is that your sex life will be interrupted by an insulin pump, then you can forget that thought. Insulin pumps can be removed as easily as they are fitted and you can remove them whilst exercising – and yes, that includes in the bedroom!
