Well, let me explain. Although first of all, I would like to let you know that I want this article to be positively working towards reducing the stigma that is focused around young people, young women, and the unexpected of using a catheter.

I knew where I was but nothing made sense. It was horrible.

A nice but seemingly emotionally distant nurse came round to do my ECG. And then …. The shivers from my fever making me believe I was so freezing cold I thought I would surely die. A vague memory of my heart rate and temp being deemed too dangerous to send me home as I listened to two nurses chat outside my cubicle curtain.

In fact, I find it quite freeing to have a catheter and have gotten used to being the girl with the catheter.

Treatment is hard and fast for bladders. A catheter in the bladder. Now that varies from time to time and patient to patient of course. But what I am saying is that we have heard it all before. Us, the community of catheter users, the incontinence of the bladder. There is a wide range of catheters out for you to choose from and healthcare professionals with bladder and bowel service in mind, in my experience and opinion, seem Urethra insertion stories to finding the RIGHT catheters for YOU.

There are so many discrete female catheters I was amazed, from different length catheters to different circumference catheters, easy hold and hygienic catheters, speedicaths with built-in pee bags, easy attachable one time bags with a one-time use valve for disposing of the urine.

It honestly was worse than cystitis, it was like the eyes of the catheter had sucked the walls of my bladder and urethra to them and twisted them skin first and flesh first into the eyes of the catheter as I removed the catheter out.
