How good is it to only pee once a day?

How good is it to only pee once a day?

Not recommended: Urinating infrequently is not healthy for the bladder. If you are accustomed to voiding this infrequently, then you are not drinking enough or more likely causing yourself to hold the urine. This will eventually cause bladder damage that may not be repairable in the future and possibly require a bladder catheter for bladder drainage. Be especially careful if you are diabetic due to infections. ...Read more

Babies make sounds: Babies do tend to make a lot of different sounds. Some grunts, gurgles, fussy sounds, and others are quite common. If your baby seems to have a good appetite, sleeps well and is acting fine, don't worry too much about the noises. If he is having trouble- not eating/sleeping well, etc., check with your doctor. ...Read more

Good day, i have a question im 7 days with missing period,negative pee pregnancy test but yesterday I had brown and pink discharge what could it be?

Beginning: It could be the beginning of an irregular period. It doesn't necessarily mean it is going to be a new pattern for you but now and then irregularities will happen. If you still have no period (other than the spotting), check a pregnancy test again and see your doctor. ...Read more

In morning its yellow by the day its clear pee too much & can't hold it not a UTI or STD is this a bad or good thing?

Get checked out: Your urine is darker in the morning because you did not drink all night which leads to a more concentrated urine. You could be drinking too much water during the day which would make you urinate too much. Polyuria is also a sign of uncontrolled diabetes. See your doctor to be checked for this. ...Read more

You could: You could continue taking Miralax (polyethylene glycol) and drink enough water so that your urine is colorless. You could try a fiber laxative like Metamucil. Best would to be increase your intake of fiber in food. Consult this site for more info.

Repeat culture.: Sounds like you have already seen urologist and that you have a recurrent rather than relapsing uti. If I were your physician I would obtain culture before treating. In absence of any other contraindication I would use Nitrofurantoin 100 mg PO bid. ...Read more

I gotta get a drug test tomorrow a pee on and I smoked on Friday will anything show up or will I be good?

I gotta get a drug test tomorrow a pee on and I smoked on Friday will anything show up or will I be good?

No, you won't: And if you are smoking marijuana either while knowing that you are likely to be tested, you really need to consider whether you have a problem with cannabis, rather than being focussed on "beating" a drug test. Marijuana sticks around for 3-4 days even after a single use, and with regular use it can stick around for far longer if they do very sensitive tests for the metabolite (THC-COOH). ...Read more

It : It would be important to determine if you are having other urinary problems. Try to note whether you are having pain with urination. It is important to note how many children you have, which can cause weakening of the bladder wall (cystocele) and can cause problems urinating. Also, note whether you have problems urinating when you don't want to (with sneezing, running), or whether it is hard to go. If you have other symptoms, then see a gynecologist or uro-gynecologist to have a complete examination of your pelvic structures. ...Read more

Self cathing bc ad, insertion is good, urine starts, at the end, I have a sharp pain and like a pinch, and I can pee a little after removal, normal?

Sounds normal.: This sharp pain may be the tip of the catheter striking the wall of your emptying bladder. Probably normal. A little urine then leaks after removal as you have stretched the sphincter open. ...Read more

I keep peein A lot! I got a urine and blood test done everything came back good. But somehow I keep peeing extremely a lot not during the night! Help?

Urinating a lot: You say you had a blood and tribe test. I wonder how long ago that was. Are you drinking more water? More caffeine (which is a diuretic)? Does diabetes run in your family? Are you urinating large amounts or frequent small amounts? I would go back to the doctor and be checked again to make sure you don't have diabetes or a kidney problem. ...Read more

Here are some ...: Getting up to pee 1-2 times is nothing unexpected or unusual since the nighttime urine excretion may increase and bladder holding urine ability may become less than men age. Such changes may widely vary among men. Are there any good supplements to help nocturia? Yet, the data to support the claim helping the prostate by many brands has been lacking. And their ingredients are largely same... ...Read more

Why does drinking decaf tea make me pee more? Is it good?

Depends: It's a matter of volume- if you drink a bunch of tea, you will pee more with or without Caffeine. Keeping well flushed is a good thing as long as you are not getting too dehydrated. If you dump a lot of sugar in your tea, that is the sugar drawing more water out of your system that makes you pee more, and makes you more dehydrated. Watch the sugar and sweeteners, should help things ...Read more
