    4 years and 1 symptomatic, treatable UTI.
    Guess I'm lucky.

    I don't condom cath, but intermittent and I think my low incidence is primarily how paranoid I am when cathing.

    I clean carefully, understanding that iodine or BZK cannot break a biofilm so I know I have to lightly scrub the opening of the urethra. Just putting stuff there won't break a biofilm or kill bacteria.

    I never touch the catheter with anything before insertion. Nothing. If it brushes against anything other than carefully-cleaned skin on the way to being inserted then it goes in the trash.

    Obviously I use more rigid catheters for this since I never touch the catheter.

    If I'm out in a public restroom of some sort, I can do this whole thing in just my chair touching nothing in my environment. It helps to have a shirt with a pocket.
    T3 complete since Sept 2015.
