Instructions for Men continued
While holding the penis upright with one hand at a 45 to 60-degree angle from the body slowly
insert the lubricated catheter into the penis using your dominant hand gently slide the catheter
until you meet resistance at the urethral sphincters do not pull the catheter in and out when you meet resistance just apply gentle but firm continuous pressure until the catheter advances into the bladder.
Insert the Urethral Cure Catheter™ until urine begins to flow.
If you are standing in front of the toilet or sitting on it with legs spread apart the urine can drain into the toilet if you are lying down place the funnel end of the catheter into a container to collect the urine hold it in place
until urine stops flowing.
When urine stops flowing, slowly rotate the catheter between your fingers while withdrawing
the catheter. If urine starts to flow again when withdrawing the catheter, stop each time it
flows and let the urine drain. Continue to slowly withdraw until the bladder is
Empty and the catheter is removed. If you are uncircumcised, make sure you bring the foreskin back over the glans penis when you are finished. Some men have very tight sphincters or an enlarged prostate which makes it difficult to pass the catheter into the bladder.
A catheter with a special, curved (Coude) tip may make passing the catheter easier.
