Stuck in Bed? Not So Terrible with the Shewee FUD
Okay, so you’re stuck in bed for a while for whatever reason. Like you literally can’t get up. Someone bringing you drinks and snacks while you watch TV all day? It’s not terrible.
What is terrible is how to pee, especially if you’re like me and like to drink lots of water. One option is to use something like the Shewee FUD (female urination device). It’s basically like a tube that fits around your urethra and allows you to direct urine away from you.
Normally, you’d use it when standing up to pee into a toilet or on the ground (when outside). However, it can also be used when laying down. It’s a bit more difficult, but entirely possible so keep on reading to find out how.

Using the Shewee FUD When Stuck in your Bed
Let’s get into the details about how to use this female urination aid while in your bed. Quick tip before you get started. If you plan to use this post-surgery in a hospital or something like that, the company recommends practicing first in the bathtub. You could also do it outside on the grass if you have a discrete space in your backyard.
There are a few simple steps you can follow.
- Lie on your side
- Bend your top leg. You want your knee to be level with your hips and also touching the bed.
- Put the Shewee against your labia, underneath the urethra. Make sure the outlet tube is pointed down (gravity!)
- You can pee into a bottle or urine collection bag (like the Peebol)
- Wipe off the Shewee with some toilet paper. It’s best to clean it with soap and water every day or two if you’re using it consistently.
