Common Questions and Answers about Frequent urination in a woman

frequent-urination

I am a 40 year old woman with the problem of frequent urination. I do not have diabetes or UTI and my ultrasound scan is normal. I underwent a D&C procedure in December of 2007. My urologist thinks that I should see a psychiatrist. I have a bulky uterus. I was 200 lbs three years ago, now I am 125 lbs, (through diet and excercise). My gynec told me that I have over-exercised,(walking 14 km a day). I feel constant irritation and pressure in my bladder.
Ask for a cystoscopy (where they put a camera in your urethra to see what's blocking it). I'm going in for one in a few weeks and hoping for answers.
I have never experienced incontinence and do not have a urinary tract infection. I went to a urologist a little while ago and they told me I was emptying my bladder all of the way but unfortunately that was the only test I really had done since I lost my health insurance. A few months later was diagnosed with a hypoactive thyroid and was put on synthroid but other than that I really have no other health issues.
So this week I have noticed a decrease in my frequent urination. I find this to be quite odd becauseI have been drinking tons more fluids this week because I've been sick and for the past two or three weeks I would have to get up at least 4 times in the night to go pee, but now I can go straight through the night. I'm so scared that something may have happened. I am currently 9 weeks 3 days. And most of my nausea has seemed to decrease too and my breasts are not as sore.
Getting up at night 3-4 times is a lot for a young woman so it is something to look into so you can find the cause. If your ovaries were removed, it could mean that your bladder has had reduced estrogen for eight years and it has caused a change in the muscles that support the bladder. It could also mean there is a bladder infection. But there are many other possible causes as well. It is difficult to know the reason without more history and an exam.
If none of these things work, or if you are a heavy smoker, then get an evaluation by a urologist or urogynecologist in your area.
I am a 50 year old woman. I had a hysterectomy one year and nine months ago and I have had urinary problems developing progressively since then. I have to get up during the night, usually three times, sometimes only twice and I feel the need to urinate very frequently during the day, even though there isn't much to pass. I don't have a urinary tract infection as this has been checked.
I recently had unprotected oral sex with a first encounter woman. Within a few days I noticed a slight burning pain in my urethra.Within a couple of weeks I went to see a urologist. They took a urine sample, and found white blood cells. They said they were going to send the urine off to diagnose what type of bacteria was in it. They never did this, so I did not return to this urologist out of frustration as I had waited over a week to find they never did the test.
I think the answer is 8 times a day in a 24 hour period is the normal average. I think it also has to do with how much you drink though too. If I'm drinking a lot of water (a liter an hour lets say) in the summer it is every 1/2 hour for me, and with a carbonation drink or alcohol it is much worse. If I'm just sitting around and not really drinking anything it might only be once every hour or two. Though I'm a bad one to ask because I'm always running to the bathroom.
I am not pregnant but can push my stomach out to look like a 7 month pregnant woman, especially after eating a light meal. I feel that after I void, my bladder is not fully empty and experience cramping and frequent urination. I have been having distention for 2 years now. Since the baby, who is now 6,4, I have had a problem with leakage when laughing, coughing or sneezing or exercising. These things as well as the ballooned stomach have gotten worse and I fear the umbilical hernia may be back.
To start with, let me qualify with the fact that I have extreme anxiety issues with medical stuff, to the point of panic attacks, so I am wondering if I have a reason to worry or if it's in my head. I had a brief encounter 3.5 weeks ago in which a random woman at performed oral sex on me for 10-15 seconds or so. I have a very limited sexual history, and was drunk so was not erect. No ejaculation, I came to my senses, and stopped it.
You need to see a gyn, since frequent urination is a symptom of ovarian cysts as well as OvCa. I had a large endometrial cyst that was leaning on the bladder, worse when I was sitting, that made me go constantly. Was checked for UTI... no infection. So, go get checked by a gyn... Even if it turns out to be nothing, you'll feel much better knowing.
I have to wonder if this isn't a case of Intersticial Cystitis. There is a woman within Medhelp that is very familiar with this health issue, I've sent her a PM to see if she would take a look at your post to see if it sounds like it to her and if she can guide you. (This forum is for pelvic organ prolapse so I want to point you to someone who can help you more specifically.) Hang in there a bit longer, we'll see what we can find for you.
I had frequent and urgent urination but no blood. I would keep going in to get tested for a bladder infection but never had one. I think it would be rare to have blood except in a very advanced case and you would likely have several symptoms at that point. Usually, the tumor just puts pressure on the bladder. I did have back pain but it was crampy and I could feel it through to my front. Please follow up with a gyn if you have concerns.
I don't know if it's ever something that needs to be treated in a non pregnant woman. Maybe if it sort of took over? Just like yeast is also a normal inhabitant of the female genital tract, if there is an imbalance and it overtakes the normal flora, you get symptomatic. Maybe group B strep is the same.
He hobbled away as fast as he could. As you say, she is a grown woman. I begged her to go to the doc for a std check and general exam. She says she's been. The police were involved so I think she would have gone as they advised this too. She's had all the checks in the hosp but I will try to persuade her to call the doc and arrange further xrays in the light of what you suggest. I'll let you know what happens. Thanks once again for your considered and helpful reply. Take care.
I am 24 years old woman and having so much embarassment due to frequent urination. A little background, few years back I had fever, which paralyzed me, couldn't walk nor move my limbs nor that i can feel anything. I got hospitalized and went to theraphist who help me to learn walking and movements. After that, I felt fine, except that I started the frequent urination and to make it worst is I can't hold urination. Whenever I get the surge to pee, I have to rush to the ladies at once.
I am a 63 year old woman, 21 years with MS, in a wheelchair for the last 12yrs. I have an indwelling catheter for the last 4 plus years, I cannot transfer without the aid of a sling and a lift. For the last 2 years I have had the discomfort of a bladder infection at least every 2 months. It clears up with antibiotics only to resume a month later. Some bleeding and lots of mucus is visable in my urine when this happens.
Dear Doctor, I am a woman of 27 years old. There is four years that i am having frequent problems with urination and the doctors seem to think it is all in my head. I began to have this frequent need to urinate,,,day and night when i was 23 years ( still virgin so there were no vaginal infections). The urine analysis and urineculture has always been sterile,,,and abdominal ultrasound always normal.
For over a year or so,i have had a bit of pelvic pain(feels like a bladder infection ),i do not have much stomach pain at all,i have coccyx/tailbone pain that radiates to my buttocks and right leg(worse when standing for a long time).I have been having frequent urination and a slight burning feeling in vagina but no pain on urination.What scares me too is that i have a weird sensation in my vagina(at the top)which feels like something is there.This also gets worse if i am standing for too long.
54 I am a 23 year old woman who has been suffering from frequent urination for about a year. It all started when I met and fell in love with my finance. He and I are waiting until marriage to have sexual intercourse, but was having oral sex performed on me which I read in a medical journal can cause UTI's, if excessive, which it was. I had gotten a few during the year, but my symptoms always came back.
Symptoms have been going on for a few months, pain in testicles was few, far in between, and short lived until a few days ago. As I'm typing this right now, my testicles hurt like you wouldn't believe. Kind of a dull pain. Me legs hurt too. I was at work today and my testicles hurt then but not nearly as bad, and it got worse towards the end of the day. Mostly in the right testicle, and it will pass to the left occasionally.
You probably have what's called an 'irritable focus' in your healthy heart. This would be a few cells that are a bit twitchy and independent, but which are generally overriden by the heart's Pacemaker during physical activity. The heart rate set by the Pacemaker normally gets slower at rest, which gives these few cranky cells the opportunity to fire in the interval.
My last sex was in September n it was protected. I got a period in October normal flow n another one in the same cycle october the 26th also normal flow.

I seem ok during the day, but at night my urethra is painful and urination is frequent leading to disrupted sleep.Please, I would be so grateful for any advice, as it has been a long six weeks!
would frequent urination be a symptom or just me worrying about it too much?
A related discussion, <a href='/posts/show/615680'>Paiful urination with blood.</a> was started.
Exactly 2 days after I noticed a pain in the lymph nodes in my groin. Two days after that I had a burning sensation in the tip of my penis no pain when voiding or ejaculating. The lymph nodes began to burn as well. The skin just under my penis on each side was inflamed but there were no lesions or discharge from my penis. I also noticed frequent urination. I took ciproflaxon for 3 days 500 mg every 12 hours and then finished another antibiotic I had for 3 more days twice a day.
Hi. I had a cyst go from softball size to cantaloupe size in a week. It turned out to be a benign endometreoma. I had symptoms for several months b/f i went in to see the dr. but my main symptom was having to go to the restroom a lot and if i held it for any length of time - i was in serious pain. i couldn't even stand up straight to get to the restroom. the cyst was obviously laying on my bladder.
i am a 54 yr. old woman. i have a condition that is causing my bath towels, wash cloths, hand towels and my bedsheets to appear to have been bleached-they literally lose color. this has been happening for decades on a much smaller scale wit h my clothing- usually bleaching around the front of my shirt collar. i thought that it was make-up that mixed with sweat. in the last 5 years it has gotten much worse.
