Advice & Tips: Thank God for these little sticks! Hardly ever have UTI's anymore. Use them everytime I go. New compact ones from Coloplast are great. Prelubricated and all in one. Easy to carry and dispose of. Only problem is that Medicare MAKES you get a lot of extra stuff in order to have them covered...Wasteful! I try to donate the extra wipes and gloves and disposal bags to clinics or friends when possible.
