The Men’s Liberty Difference

An Alternative to Foley and External Catheters

If you use a catheter to help manage your incontinence, you have multiple options:

  • Foley catheters, also known as internal or indwelling catheters
  • External catheters, also known as Texas or condom catheters
  • Intermittent catheters, also known as short-term catheters

Disadvantages of Foley Catheters

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.

Disadvantages of Traditional External Catheters

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.
