Anatomy and positioning
To be frank, for a woman it’s not that easy to see where to enter the catheter so it is important that they receive extra support at the start.
Some women avoid going out if they don’t know where to find an accessible bathroom. Some even drink less to avoid visits to the toilet.
Yet another piece to fit in
For some it seems messy and time-consuming, and can be seen to have an effect on relationships and social activities.
Fear of concept
Some feel ashamed when they can’t go to the toilet the normal way. Some imagine ISC as something invasive or even painful that diminishes their femininity, or see it as yet another onerous task to add to the pile.
These fears are perfectly normal, but not always addressed by healthcare professionals. If you have any of the concerns above, please take the opportunity to discuss them at your next doctor’s appointment.
It is definitely possible to overcome the obstacles. Your dedication will determine whether the therapy is successful or not. A good start is crucial and the choice of catheter equally so. The catheter needs to both fit your needs and lifestyle.
