UTIs are a common concern for catheter users

41% of all users of intermittent catheters find UTIs a daily concern*. If you have worries, or feel uncertain about how to reduce your risk of UTIs, you’re not alone. Indeed, with many catheter users experiencing two or more UTIs every year, they represent a significant source of concern.
