The freedom to take part in sports and exercise
Performing IC is a step toward more freedom when it comes to sports, because you can be active without the fear of leaking. If you stick to your IC schedule, you can engage in whatever activity your physical condition allows you to. Once you form a good routine, IC only takes a few minutes, so even if you have to empty your bladder during sports, you will not be gone any longer than anyone else who has to use the bathroom.
For sports and an active lifestyle, we recommend a Compact solution.
The confidence to enjoy an active sex life
Intermittent catheterization very rarely interferes with sexual activity. On the contrary, catheterizing yourself and emptying your bladder completely before having sex will prevent leakage during the act.
The only thing you need to consider is that IC does not allow you to be completely spontaneous; always take the time to empty your bladder before hitting the sheets.
These are general guidelines meant to help you with typical questions. You should follow the specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider and the intermittent catheterization solution you are using.
