What happens if I don’t catheterize?

This is very dependent on your condition and your reason for using an intermittent catheter. You may find that you start to leak urine when your bladder becomes too full, or there may be more complex challenges, which require physician intervention. Speak to your healthcare professional to understand the implications for you, if there is too long an interval before cathing.
