How to perform Female Self Catheterization?

Most women who perform catheterization sit on the toilet or nearby in a chair or wheelchair when they pass the catheter into the urethra. Other women may perform it lying down with pillows behind their backs. Do what is most comfortable for you. Initially you may want to use a mirror to help visualize the urethral opening where the catheter is inserted. The mirror can be placed on a low stool in front of the toilet seat. It may take time for you to locate the proper opening. Eventually most women learn to catheterize by touch and feel.

Before you begin, gather the following materials:

Cure Catheter in sealed wrapper

Water soluble lubricant

Something to cleanse the area: soap, water and a washcloth, or unscented disposable wipes

A container to collect the urine if not cathing while sitting on a toilet

Hand towel

Inspect before use. If catheter or package is damaged do not use.

Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water, or if not available, use an antibacterial hand cleaner.

Lay out the equipment so it is within easy reach. Open the water soluble lubricant. The package may open from both ends for ease of use. Apply a liberal amount of lubricant to the tip and first inch of the catheter.

Continue……

Position yourself comfortably. Arrange clothing so it is out of the way. If sitting on the toilet, spread your legs far apart. If lying down, bend knees and place your heels together in a “frog-like” position.

Using the non-dominant hand, separate the labia with the thumb and forefinger to locate.

With the labia separated, wash the area from front to back thoroughly with soap, water and washcloth or unscented disposable wipe. Never go back and forth over the urethral opening. Repeat washing from front to back with the different areas of the washcloth or throw away wipe.

With your dominant hand, insert the gently into the urethral opening. Continue to insert the catheter about 2 inches until urine begins to flow.

If sitting on the toilet the urine can drain into the toilet. If 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 stop withdrawing the catheter and let the urine drain. When the bladder is empty finish removing the catheter.

How Often Should You Catheterize?

Your healthcare provider will let you know how often you will need to perform clean Cure Catheter™ Straight Tip self catheterization and the size of the catheter you will need. Normally Performed every four hours starting when you wake up in the morning and continues every four hours until bedtime. Some people catheterize on a more frequent schedule.
