It depends on a number of factors. Firstly, is it a short length, or standard length Foley catheter? If it is a short length, then no.
Regarding the gauge, generally a 14F or 16F is used, though a 12F can also be used in women in children. 18F are generally not used as they cause patient discomfort.
Lastly, it also depends on the material it is made of, as patients with a latex allergy will generally require a silastic catheter (though there are other types available).
Why is this different from male caths by female nurses?
And I guarantee you that after the first 2 or 3 thousand, there's no sexual thrill.
Any trained Nurse, Male or Female can do the catheterization.

A catheter is a term used for any thin tube inserted into the body - not just a urinary catheter.

A urinary catheter is a tube that a nurse would insert into the penis through the urethra to help with urine flow. It is the same catheter, whether to catheterize a male or female. A one-time catheter has no collection bag. An indwelling catheter has long tubing that ends in a collection bag that is hung on the lower side of the bed.
A straight catheter is typically secured with adhesive tape. An indwelling catheter is secured by inflating a bulb-like device inside of the bladder.
Quite simply no. This is because this would leave you with only the female end of the adapter. I would just get a female to male adapter.
It is a type of catheter most commonly used to catheterise patients. There are two types of catheter, one for males which is slightly longer and another for females which is smaller in size
Female female male male female Male male male female Male male female
Yes, if one is a male and one is a female. If you only have one male or one female, you can use a ditto.
