Frequently Asked Questions

Catheters are most commonly utilized due to urinary retention (unable to empty the bladder), urinary incontinence (leakage of the bladder), issues related to the prostate, or a performed surgery requiring catherization.

Intermittent, Foley (or Indwelling), and Condom (or External) Catheters.


  • Intermittent catheters are single-use catheters disposed of after each use. Patients able to perform intermittent catherization realize a better quality of life and can perform self-catheterization at home, work or in a public setting in a private, discreet manner.
  • Foley or Indwelling catheters are temporary placed within the bladder for a period of usually 1 month. Urine is drained from the bladder via the foley catheter into a leg bag or collection device. Patients opt for foley catheters in the event of not being able to perform self-catheterization for a variety of reasons.
  • Condom (or External) catheters are used for men who have urinary incontinence. The catheter is rolled onto the penis, similar to that of a condom, and urine drains from the bladder into a leg collection bag. These are commonly worn by men who have leakage at night, or during work hours, and have no control over the leakage in their bladder.

Groin and/or abdomen discomfort is one potential side effect of catheter use. Steps you can take to avoid pain and other side effects include washing your hands before and after using a catheter, maintaining your personal hygiene, and following instructions for catheter insertion and removal.

Foley Catheters are most commonly placed for a period of 1 month and changed by the patient’s physician office.
