Self-Catherization Guidelines for Men

  1. Wash your hands and your penis with warm, soapy water or a moist towelette.
  2. Lubricate the tip of the catheter. Place the opposite end of the catheter in the toilet or basin.
  3. Hold the tip of your penis at a 45 degree angle from your stomach.
  4. Slowly insert the catheter into your urethra. If it is hard to insert, relax. If you feel a sharp pain, remove the catheter and try again. When urine begins to flow, stop inserting the catheter and lower your penis.
  5. When the urine stops flowing, slowly remove and discard the catheter. Be sure to wash your hands.

Hints and Tips

  • Drink plenty of fluids
  • Always use a clean or sterile catheter
  • Follow your schedule whether you feel the need to urinate or not
  • Keep a log of your self-catheterization schedule

Health and Wellness Tip

Laugh every day.  It can release endorphins, the healing hormones, and act as the body’s natural pain killer.  Rent a funny movie or call a friend that makes you laugh.  This can lower your blood pressure and boost your immune system.
