Here's how to empty your bladder with a probe for girls. Our explanatory video explains to you by step how to proceed in a simple, efficient, secure and hygienic way.

Here is a summary of the different stages

  • Wash your hands with water and soap
  • Check the material you will need
    1- Probe
    2- Soft soap
    3- possibly compresses
    4- Mirror to locate the urethra orifice
  • Take off your pants to access your urethra
  • Then sit on the toilet
  • The probe is protected by a tube that you will have to withdraw before use
    1- hold the probe vertically, the shortest part downwards
    2 - Turn the two parts in opposite direction to tear the plastic film
    3 - Always by maintaining the vertical probe, separates the two parts by slowly pulling on each of them until feeling a small resistance
    4- Lightly fold the grip handle in front and back to release the probe
    5- then empty the liquid in the lower tube
  • Lays the probe vertically on a flat surface by keeping it on the grip handle

*Be careful not to touch your skin or your clothes with the lubricated part that you will insert into the urethra

  • You have to gently clean the lip contour to avoid the introduction of bacteria into the urethra and the bladder during the insertion of the probe
  • If necessary attach a mirror to your thigh
  • Gently spreads the small lips and cleans the urethra orifice using compresses

*Again here, pay attention to what the probe touches anything before insertion. If it touches the sink, your skin, your clothes or other objects, you have to take a new one and start again

  • Relax to facilitate the insertion of the probe
  • Always holding the lips apart, inserts the probe into the urethra following the instructions that have been given to you
  • Inserts the probe into the urethra until the urine begins to flow

*If you miss the urethra, use a new probe

  • When the urine stops flowing, straightens up slightly to make sure that nothing remains in the bladder.
  • Gently remove the probe by pivoting it slightly
  • When nothing flows, it is because the bladder is empty
  • When you finish, you can throw the probe and its packaging in the trash

* Do not throw the probe in the toilet

  • Wash your hands again
