Worsen it. : Bladder infections cause increased urgency and bladder muscle contractions that make it hard to hold the urine. Why are you having recurrent infections would be a great question to answer. Not treated with right medication, kidney stones, bladder prolapse, hygiene issues? Seek help from a urologist or urogynecologist if you are female.
