This is a LifeSaver!
I have Multiple Sclerosis and was devastated when I had to start self-catheterizing. I was terrified of doing this and my Mother had to do it for me. However, once I got over the fear, I realized that I needed to do this myself for my own independence sake. However, I could not do it. I was no longer afraid and I understood the procedure. But, I could not logistically make it happen. I felt that if I had a 3rd arm...I could do it. But, the nurses were not helpful in the training. They train you in a special seat with stirrups and they hold the mirror. But, I do not have a stirrup seat and a nurse in my bathroom...when I found this product, I was very encouraged. It was not a home run right away. It still took some practice. I find that it is easier to "thread" the catheter in the device before inserting it and putting it in place. But after 3 or 4 attempts...I figured out how close I had to hold the Asta-Cath to me and the upward angle you have to use with the cath. Now, I do this by myself every time. Every Urologist office should have a drawer of these and hand them out to new patients! I cannot give this more stars! Should have 10!

This device is a LIFESAVER and should be given to everyone new to Catheterization
I have MS and was devastated when I was told I would have to start self-catheterizing. I was terrified and my Mother had to do it for me. When I got over my fear, I realized I needed to do this for myself so that I could feel independent again. Although I understood perfectly the theory…I could not grasp the execution of it. The nurses were of little help because they trained you in a special chair with stirrups (that you do not have in your own home) and by holding the mirror for you (nope…they are not in my bathroom when I need them). I felt like I needed a third hand…and the AstaCath turned out to be my 3rd hand! It was not a homerun right away…it did take a few attempts and failures to find the correct hole and to remember to aim up not straight in. I learned how far you had to press the Asta Cath in…and that it was much easier for me to “thread” the cath into the correct hole before inserting the AstaCath. I think I now have it figured out and have had 3 successes for the last 3 attempts! I truly feel that if they gave these out in the Dr’s offices when a patient is prescribed self-catheterization….that much of the fear, humiliation, and failures would be avoided.

Almost perfect
This tool is just what I needed! I only have one wrist that works but has no grip. This now allows me to self cath. The only complaint I have is I wish they were more sturdy. While learning how to use this I broke two in a week. They work great but I always keep a back-up on hand now!

WONDERFUL!
This is an unbelievable product and I am so grateful to the person who designed it! It has made self-catheterization very simple and successful. Once I located the correct hole for me in the device, I hot-glued two small beads on the other holes and that REALLY helps me to locate the right spot with my fingers. I would highly recommend this product to any woman who needs to self-cath.

This promotes independence.
For so long I only used diapers because I don't know anyone who knows how to insert a catheter. So when a friend recommended this and told me that I could insert it myself, I tried it. It was indeed easy to learn how to insert it. The shape and design really allows easy self insertion.

No more shame!
As a female who has to use catheter, I can fully understand your embarrassment and shame about this. Certainly, this is not something you can easily ask your friends just like you question about cosmetics. To my fellow users, I strongly want to recommend to buy this. It comes in handy and especially designed for women. No regret. Hope you can have the comfort with this Iike I do.
