There are two main types of indwelling catheter, which have different insertion techniques: Urethral catheter. Also called a Foley catheter, the healthcare provider inserts this type through a person’s urethra. Suprapubic catheter.

Because the female urethra is only a few inches in length compared to the male urethra, female length catheters are typically around 6 inches long, although there are smaller pocket catheter options. Some women prefer to use male length catheters, which are around 16 inches long.

Catheter French Sizes

Because everyone has a unique body and needs, we always like to remind our customers that no single catheter out there will work for everyone. The same goes for the size, catheter type, and length of your catheter product.

Catheters are sized by what is called “French sizes,” which refers to the diameter of the catheter tube. These range from pediatric sizes to adult. Most typically, common catheter sizes can be anywhere from 5 Fr – 24 Fr.

Catheter Lengths

You have three different length options when it comes to catheters.

Women and children generally use shorter lengths because of their shorter urethras, although some prefer male catheters. If you’re looking for a shorter catheter or something more discreet, 180 Medical carries plenty of travel-ready pocket catheter options.
