UTI? Pregnancy?: Your symptoms could suggest several possibilities. Frequent need to urinate could be due to a urinary tract infection. Missing your cycle could be due to pregnancy, hormone imbalance, stress, use of birth control. I suggest you seek care to determine the cause as both issues require medical treatment.
