It's uncomfortable so I must be doing it wrong?

“If cathing feels uncomfortable, either I’m doing it wrong or it’s not for me.”

However, once you get past this initial stage it should no longer feel bad at all and children as young as five are able to self catheterize. However, remember that once it feels like second nature, you should still be gentle and careful to prevent any damage.
