strange.....but serious question

Hey Guys

I have a rather odd question. I found out today that due to some health problems, I have to be catherized for about 5 days. The doctor inserted the catheter into my bladder and sent me home with instructions on how to care for it etc... My question is: Will I be able to masturbate with a catheter in my penis? So far it really doesn't hurt, just kind of bothersome having a tube hanging out of your penis all time. What do you guys think?

I can't believe that your doc didn't discuss this with you. I've never been cathaterized so I don't know for sure but I assume masturbation and any sexual experience involving your penis is totally off limits until that tube is gone. I also suspect that an erection might be sorta painful....I hope you don't get one of those difficult to control boners! Good luck! By the way, when you go to have that cathater removed ask about masturbation once it's out. I have heard that there is a bit of pain once one of those is out.....good luck!

I have had the catheter thing, and there is no jacking off with it because the semen has no place to go and it doesn't feel good that way.

As far as taking the catheter out, that is an interesting experience, but not painful. You can jack normally after that and there should be no pain. If there is, then you have to start thinking about prostate infection that often happens if you don't keep the tube clean.

I recommend you DO NOT try to masturbate with the catheter in. It will be extremely uncomfortable, possibly even painful, and the semen will clog up the catheter. It is vital that the catheter not be clogged, because then urine will not be able to pass through to the bag. If that happens, you will have to get it taken out and a new one inserted - that will seriously NOT be something you want to have happen.

I've had this indwelling catheter experience a number of times, and I always do my best NOT to think about sex for the time it is in. THAT is the best approach, believe me.

I can't believe this. How can you imagine something like that? For me to have that tube inside of me would make me impotent. Pray for that treatment goes quickly.

Re: strange.....but serious question

Having a catheter in your penis actually doesn't prohibit the body from getting erections. You can still get an erection and for all intent and purpose you can still orgasm. The tube is generally made of silicon or rubber and is easily bent! Otherwise, you would have trouble putting it in! The end of the catheter would terminate in the bladder so that the bladder doesn't get full!

If you were to orgasm, you would not clog the tube up as the holes in the catheter would be in the bladder, but you may have some discomfort as the semen, would just stop where the prostate gland and urethra meet just under the bladder neck. It would be reabsorbed though back over time into the body. So it would not get into the catheter. The only way semen would escape through the urethra would be if the tube were too small (thin) for the urethra!

Hope this helps!

Re: strange.....but serious question

Thanks Nurse Oz for the technical explanation and I can only think how uncomfortable and painful that would be to have the semen blocked so it couldn't be ejaculated and then have to wait for it to be reabsorbed! I still can't believe this guys doc didn't explain that to him.

Yes retrograde ejaculation is where the semen is forced back along the path it came. Over time it could certainly be harmful to your urethra and prostate.

Unfortunately Lance, I am not overly surprised a GP didn't tell their patient about all effects of a catheter! Of course, we don't generally tell all our patients about masturbation if they have to have a catheter! Although most don't actually want to masturbate with one in!!
