What if I’m at a friend’s house?
If you are at a friend’s house you might worry about privacy when using the bathroom. When you need to get rid of the used catheter, it is helpful to have some colored plastic bags with you to wrap the catheter in after use so you can discard it or take it home with you. You can also get catheters that are compact and discreet, so you can just have them in your pocket – even after they have been used.
Do I need to tell?
There really is no way to generally answer this question. The choice to tell people about your cathing is completely up to you. We all have our personal preferences when it comes to sharing personal details about ourselves. However, it might be a good idea to share your condition and needs to some close friends and family. It’s up to you! Read our thoughts on telling about it in the article “Should I tell people about it?”
