You will be taught how to insert a urinary catheter into your bladder by a health professional – this can be done in a hospital, clinic, or at home. Urinary catheters are inserted into the bladder at intervals throughout the day, or when you feel the need to go to the toilet. It is sometimes necessary to catheterize during the night as well. Once the urine has drained out, the catheter is removed.

Most people feel apprehensive about performing Intermittent Self Catheterisation. It can be a bit awkward to start with but with practice, you will soon become confident, and your local health care professional will offer you support until you feel able to manage alone.  Most people go on to say that they find it easy to self-catheterize after a time.

Types Of Catheters Available

How Do I Self-Catheterise?

Self-Cath® Straight Tip Catheter 6 Inch Before use, all catheters should be stored in a dry area, lying flat and straight.

It is very important to wash your hands before touching or inserting the catheter – you may choose to use a fresh baby wipe if there is no wash hand basin in the toilet.

Once you have washed your hands, do not touch anything else except your catheter.

Most catheters have a sticky back patch that allows you to open it and secure it to a surface nearby, such as a wall or sink, making it easier to access when you are ready to insert it into the urethra.

Preparation – For Women

You have to ensure that your vulva (intimate area between your legs) is clean.

There are several ways to catheterize – you can learn to insert the catheter while sitting on the toilet or in your wheelchair when standing, or by putting one foot up onto the toilet seat to enable you to locate your urethra more easily. You can experiment and decide which way feels most comfortable. If you are a woman and find it hard to locate your urethra, try using a mirror to see where your urine comes out. Once you have done this several times you will probably not need a mirror. You can do it over the bath if it’s easier.

Preparation – For Men

You have to ensure that the area around the tip of the penis is clean. It may be that a daily shower or bath is sufficient but when you go out it is useful to keep a small pack of baby wipes in a pocket to enable you to ensure the area is clean.  Men may stand or sit to perform intermittent

The Task Urethral Catheter Self-Cath® Straight Tip Uncoated PVC

When you are ready, take the catheter by the drainage end from the packaging and gently push the other end into your urethra. When the catheter has reached the bladder, urine will drain from it. Make sure all the urine has drained from your bladder before removing it.

To remove the catheter, gently twist it and pull it down. Don’t worry if it doesn’t come out the first time. Try again, continuing to pull gently.
