Sorry ladies, but I have to ask.

split hairs much?

I'm sorry the pathetic school system messed you up where you feel the need to apologize for politically incorrect words/phrases for others....

I never subscribed to that type thinking.....it seems so castrating.

There are medications that can cause bladder problems, or urine retention. Surgical procedures such as Hysterectomy can cause short-term need.

I'm sorry that you have trouble with the English language and precise thinking.

I try not to judge because I don't know what tomorrow brings. I came here to find out why people need portable catheters, and I hope and pray I never need one. Shame on the people laughing at the misfortune of others.

ColdShot: you did not say "all" but you also did not modify the noun women by any adjectives implying that you were talking about a subset of women (i.e. some women, a few women, a subset of women, certain women, enough women to warrant a TV ad, etc.). Therefore, following grammatical rules, people who read your post assumed that you were talking about young women in general, or all young women.

Add to that that you seem to be one of very few people who has seen this ad, most if not all of the respondents had no clue what you were referring to.

As for women's body parts being messed up... a woman's body is remarkably adept and versatile and well packaged. For example, a hit to the groin does not hurt so much for a woman, it is far more difficult to see if a woman is "happy to see you" unless she wants to reveal that information, and a man's pee pee hole would not recover quite as well if you passed a watermelon or two through it the way a woman's does.

To be fair babies aren't passed through the "pee-pee" hole. Just saying.

They're selling male ones on tv too. I was wondering myself what the deal was, since I'd never heard of anyone of either sex using them at home. I have no argument with someone at Medicare suddenly becoming sane regarding its policies; it's about time. On the other hand, if the companies are making so much money off of these and other medical products, like the scooters, that they can troll on television like that, then I can't help but think that Medicare is paying too much for them. Advertising is wonderful, I know, and I think it must be somewhere in Genesis about how we're supposed to be thankful for it. Yes, I know, it does drum up awareness of the situation: on the other hand, why not have Medicare send a notice to every person who has been doing it the old-fashioned re-sterilize method (at home? I'm thinking that whoever set that process up a long time ago is in desperate need of a brain transplant) and have them switch. Then, Medicare could, if it's within the provisions of whatever congressional mandate applies, negotiate a price that would save all of us (i.e., Medicare) money, and allow the companies to still make a reasonable profit. Whatever the advertising adds to the price--1%, 3%, or whatever--is bound to be a lot when you're looking at millions of people.

Well, I always thought that vaginas were rather gross and "messed up", but I assumed it's because I'm straight. I'm pretty sure most men think they're great. I've only ever had a catheter in the hospital a few days after my c-section because I couldn't leave the bed, and hey, who wants to pee the bed?

I don't have television or cable, so I'm not sure about this commercial everyone is referencing. Sorry about the angry people. I am amused.

Embarrassingly Stupid.

Donna....they are on all the time....every station. I was in medicine for over 30 years and the only thing I could think was that women who have had sex since they were young teens are now having problems, therefore now needing catheters.

What kind of problem would early
activity cause? How & Why.

ColdShot must be young. The fact is the morons that work for the federal government are overpaying so massively for catheters that the companies that sell them have enough cash to run ads all day long.

I got shunted here on the same google search ColdShot did, I bet. I have been wondering about this crazy ad for months and finally remembered to track it down. Thanks, ColdShot, for having the nerve to ask. I should have known the thing was deliberately misleading, like almost all advertising.

I am female and I had wondered why catheters would be needed on a regular, on going, at home basis. I have seen the commercial that Coldshot referred to and wondered why such a young woman would need a catheter. I can certainly understand Coldshot's curiosity because I was curious myself. In fact, I did not take his comment negatively although I probably would not have phrased my question the same way. I thought he was just wondering what was going on.
