Bladder problems, regardless of their severity, can make it hard to go about our normal day-to-day lives with confidence. Catheterizing can help in a lot of different ways.
Using disposable catheters means you’ll be able to empty your bladder at different periods throughout the day—just like natural urinating. That means you’ll be following a normal routine, which is more important than it may sound. With a good single-use catheter, you’ll be able to catheterize quickly and comfortably. No one has to know besides you.
By catheterizing, you’ll also empty the bladder completely, so there’s little risk of leakage. A lot of people with bladder problems worry about going out, in case there are leaks. Self-catheterizing can be part of the solution. Needless to say, complete emptying is also better for you from a medical perspective.
Another important way single-use catheters can impact your life is sex. Just the fact that you’re relieving the urine problem increases the chances for better sexual function. Disposable catheters also mean there is no permanent device to be embarrassed about or that gets in the way.
