Can I reuse my catheters?

While it can seem harmless to reuse catheters, it may not always be a good idea. Reusing catheters may increase the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs).

Also, the FDA regulates intermittent urinary catheters as single-use devices. Therefore, catheters should be used once and then thrown away.
