Yes: Complications of psychogenic polydipsia include incontinence and enuresis, bladder dilation and hydronephrosis, renal and congestive heart failure, and osteoporosis and associated pathologic fractures. Diagnosis is one of exclusion. Other medical causes of polydipsia, polyuria, and/or hyponatremia need to be ruled out.

Yes and no: As the baby gets bigger, you may not be able to empty your bladder completely and you may have to make frequent visits to the bathroom --> that would be normal. However, if you have burning in addition to increase frequency, you may have a urinary tract infection and you should talk to your doctor about it.

No: It is normal to go to the bathroom frequently when you are pregnant, especially as the baby gets bigger and begins tap dancing on your bladder. Stinging when you urinate is rarely normal and you should be evaluated for a urinary tract infection. Bladder infections should be treated quickly in pregnancy to avoid developing a kidney infection.

If there is a prostatic or bladder mass, then biopsy under ultrasound or ct scan guidance is indicated to rule out cancer, urologist should be consulted immediatel.

Paruresis.: Paruresis is the avoidance of, or the inability to use the toilet in the presence of others. It is listed in the dsm-iv, the classification manual used by psychiatrists, as a social phobia. This can be a serious condition & an issue in cases of employer-based urine drug screening. For those who experience significant anxiety, treatments such as cognitive-behavioral therapy & support groups exist.
