What Precautions Need To Be Taken While Using Urinary Catheter?

I am a male, 86 years old. No health problems other than a bladder blockage for which I am wearing a urinary catheter. I have been using this item for about a month. My question is: Is it dangerous or inadvisable to ejaculate while wearing this device?

Hi,

Yes, you should not ejaculate while a tube is in your urethra. Next time your doctor or nurse will change your catheter you may ask for a couple of minutes of privacy.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
