My daughter has a problem holding her bladder in the daytime and urinates several times a night Is this normal? She is also cut off fluids 2hr be4 bed

More information: Her age would help me to recommend a treatment, but if this is something fairly recent, it would be a good idea to make there is no possibility a urinary tract infection.

35 wk usg femalefoetus shows over distended bladder with kidneys normal amniotic fluid normal. Is there any problem, prior tiffa normal.

Baby full bladder: Most likely if the kidneys look normal and the amniotic fluid is normal, all is well. Usually we'd repeat the ultrasound again later to see if the baby emptied in the meantime or not. If there was a blockage of the urine outflow from the bladder, the amniotic fluid level would not be normal, it would be very low. ...Read more

18 week fetal US indicated enlarged bladder. Kidneys measured normal. Amniotic fluid normal. Any advice?

Full bladder US?: If the ultrasound was done with a full bladder as is usually done, then the pregnancy will distort and displace the bladder at 18 weeks, so it is difficult to say that the "bladder was enlarged". Since the amniotic fluid content is OK. As well as the fetus then "no worries" at this juncture. ...Read more

When ejaculation is stopped deliberately, since prostatic and seminal fluid can backflow to the bladder, can it flow back into the ejaculatory duct?

When ejaculation is stopped deliberately, since prostatic and seminal fluid can backflow to the bladder, can it flow back into the ejaculatory duct?

Gotta go somewhere: This is a plumbing issue. If there is high pressure liquid coming down the pipe, and somebody suddenly blocks the end of the pipe, the liquid has gotta go somewhere. If one asks "can it" go there or "can it" go here... well that depends on how high the pressure is and how much liquid there is. In life, many things are possible, includine such backflow. If worried, one should avoid doing this. ...Read more

Is it concerning if I started amitiza (lubiprostone) and now have a full bladder (increased urination) every hour with no change in fluid intake?

Is it concerning if I started amitiza (lubiprostone) and now have a full bladder (increased urination) every hour with no change in fluid intake?

Very unusual...: I have never heard of this side effect from the drug in question, nor is it identified in the pdr as a significant adverse reaction. Perhaps the two issues are coincidental, so that your polyuria (urinary frequency) might then deserve further medical attention (rule out uti, high blood sugar, passing stones, etc). You can also stop the Amitiza (lubiprostone) ; see if the increased urination returns to baseline. ...Read more

Specific case: This is a very specific case that requires a doctor to evaluate the exact findings of the sonogram to determine if it is normal or not. You will need to seek clarification from your doctor regarding the term “enlarged bladder” to determine if further testing, follow up sonograms or a referral to a perinatologist is indicated. ...Read more
