Urological problems for men and women can be troublesome and life affecting. Urinary complications are not easy topics to discuss with one’s doctor, or even one’s closest friends! But it’s important to know that urological problems should be discussed, treatment should by sought and men and women of all ages should seek medical advice to combat the onset of continuing urological problems.
Some of the common symptoms of a urinary problem might include burning sensation while urinating (the most common form of a urinary tract infection); a strong urge to urinate, but not being able to pass much urine; fever and back pain; a feeling of not being able to completely empty your bladder, or leaking urine (incontinence). Both men and women can face these same symptoms, and if so, should seek medical advice and possibly urological care and supplies as needed.
Urinary incontinence is mainly focused on the involuntary leaking of urine from the body. The amount could range from just urine spotting to heavy flows of urine. Urinary incontinence is almost always a result of a treatable medical condition, but is often not treated quickly due to the nature of the condition.
Fortunately, urological care is available. Male and female catheters are available for both men and women to deal with various urological issues. One way that urological problems are treated are through the use of intermittent catheters. Intermittent catheters are typically single-use urinary catheters in which users urinate once into it and then dispose the catheter. The catheter is inserted into the women’s bladder for urinating. This type of catheter is also available as a closed system catheter, preventing bacteria from entering the catheter. The urine catheter is enclosed in a sleeve or bag so hands do not touch it and introduce bacteria.
