It is a process in which a person uses a catheter (tube) to empty his/her bladder regularly. It is required by people who suffer from urinary inconsistency, urine leakages, or involuntary urination. A person may also require self-catheterization after a surgery.

It is a simple treatment that does not require any surgical intervention and helps when one faces difficulty in emptying his bladder. If one cannot empty his bladder the regular way, he would need a catheter tube to allow the urine to come out.
Steps to take before the procedure
Your doctor will guide you on how to use the catheter and how often you need to empty your bladder based on your personal needs. Your doctor will advise you on which catheter to use and how it works. It is important to wash your hands every time you use it. You may also gently wipe the catheter with soft tissues, to ensure more safety.
What happens during the procedure?
Before inserting the catheter, you should wash your urinary area. For women, you will need to identify the exact portion from where the urine flows. For a gentle fit, it is also important to lubricate the catheter before you insert it. Push the catheter into your urethra/meatus and the urine will collect in the catheter bag.
After the procedure
Once you are done, empty the bag and wash it with hot water. Mild soap can also be used to clean it.
