Indwelling catheters for men come in two general varieties:
While indwelling catheters are often considered a good option for men with more severe urinary incontinence, there are many common side effects for the user to be aware of.
Discomfort is often reported at the time of the procedure, as well pain or lingering soreness once it is in place. Internal catheters can also cause damage to the urethra and skin in the area around the catheter.
The most common side effect of indwelling catheters is urinary tract infections (UTI). Internal catheters can allow bacteria to more easily enter the urinary tract, which puts the user at a higher risk for UTI. Also, because the treatment involves antibiotics, this can lead to antibiotic resistance.
Unlike a standard internal or Foley catheter, Men’s Liberty is completely external. It has been specially designed to move urine away from the skin. We have sold more than 3 million units and have had no reports of urinary tract infections or skin irritation caused by the Men’s Liberty.
