Maybe. : There may be minimal discomfort when the catheter is inserted. As with all procedures for which there may be discomfort/pain, the degree/intensity depends upon the patients' pain threshhold, and in this case how easily the catheter can be inserted through the urethra into the bladder.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
