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).
