Male External (Condom) Catheters

Men who have urine leakage may benefit from the use of a male external (condom) catheter. This is a convenient, clean and comfortable method for dealing with incontinence.  The condom catheter is applied to the shaft of the penis like a condom. It is worn discretely under the clothing and connected to a leg bag or a bedside drainage collector.


With some preparation, your system will become as much a part of your daily routine as brushing your teeth. If you and your doctor have chosen to use this method, you will need to make decisions on the types and sizes of products best suited to your anatomy and lifestyle.  Then, learn the proper method of putting on, connecting, and removing the system, along with how to care for yourself and your system. Condom catheters are most effective when applied to a clean, dry penis. You may need to trim the hair around the pubic area so the device attaches better.


Following are things to consider when making these decisions:


Condom Catheter

These come in both latex and silicone and with or without adhesive. There are also condom catheters designed to assist with specific problems you may have, such as retraction, blow-offs or back-flow.  Male External Catheters are available in multiple sizes and lengths so you will need to determine the appropriate size.  Sizers are available to assist in determining the best fit for you. The latex-free catheters are non-irritating and non-allergenic — perfect for those with known latex sensitivity. They're also made of a clear material that allows for monitoring of the skin through the catheter.  You may also need additional accessories such as straps, skin prep or adhesive remover.


Drainage Bags

Leg bags come in many shapes and sizes.  You will need to choose what works for you based on where you wear the leg bag and how long your leg is.  You also have choices in the valve that empties the bag and will need to consider your hand function and flexibility.  Leg bags are made of vinyl or latex.  The vinyl ones are considered disposable and the latex ones reusable.  You may also need a tubing/connector kit.


Night drainage or bed bags are also a consideration and come in 2000ml and 4000ml sizes, single or double hook and different valves.  A night drainage bottle is also available.  These typically come with tubing attached.



Remember, there are many different manufacturers (Bard, Coloplast, Hollister, Rochester Medical, etc.) and types of each product.  Please see the appropriate categories on this website for information or call Customer Service if you need additional assistance.
