If you use a catheter to help manage your incontinence, you have multiple options:
One of the biggest problems of Foley catheters is the risk of infection. According to a study featured in BMC Urology , they are the leading cause of healthcare-associated urinary tract infections.
Foley catheters have also been known to cause low back pain and achiness, a burning sensation in the urethra, and bloody or cloudy urine.
Finally, Foley catheters cannot be self-applied. While they only need to be replaced once per month, a medical professional or caregiver is needed to put the new catheter in place.
Like Foley catheters, men who use external catheters at risk of getting a urinary tract infection. In fact, 40% of men who use traditional external catheters for an extended period of time will get an infection.
External catheters can also cause skin irritation, can be painful to remove, and some men report leakage because the catheter can be pulled or tugged out of place.
