I am making frequent pouch changes

Changing your stoma pouch too often will increase the risk of causing damage to your skin around the stoma.

How much is too much?

  • Closed pouch – more than 3 times a day.
  • Drainable pouch – more than once a day.
  • Urostomy pouch – more than alternate days.

If you are changing your pouch more frequently than this, you may need to consider changing to a different pouch.  We would recommend you contact your stoma nurse as you may need to switch to a 2-piece system.

The products below could help to extend your pouch weartime and reduce the number of changes you make.
