Catheters can be a good alternative for men dealing with urinary incontinence. If you are tired of inconvenient adult diapers and incontinence pads, but not sure what else is available, learn more about catheter alternatives here.
Types of catheters
Catheters can be external or indwelling. Much like the names suggest, indwelling catheters are placed inside the body. A thin, hollow tube is inserted through the urethra and into the bladder where it can drain urine. If you have ever had surgery, this is most likely the kind your doctor used. You can use another type of indwelling catheter, the Foley catheter, longer term, up to a month. This type of catheter differs in that in uses a balloon to remain in place. You can empty the bag used with the catheter when full.
You place external catheters outside of the body, and often cover the penis in the same way a condom does. A bag attached to a catheter collects urine and, as with the indwelling catheter, you can empty it when full.
Indwelling catheters can encourage bacterial growth that leads to infection. Prolonged moisture on the skin, common with external catheters, can lead to rashes and irritation.
