As a woman, how do I insert a catheter?

Hygiene is of paramount importance. Wash your hands with water and soap (preferably from a soap dispenser) and dry your hands with a clean hand towel. If there is no (clean) water available, you can wash your hands with a wet wipe or disinfect your hands with an antibacterial sanitising hand gel. Wash your pubic area with plenty of water. If there is no water available, you can use moist toilet wipes. First of all clean your labia and then the area around your urethra. Make sure that you always wipe from front to back.
