If the number going to pee makes a person feel inconvenient for daily living , it is denoted as urinary frequency or frequent urination, which should be individualized to reflect the function of bladder storage and emptying, urine excretion, and fluid consumption, although AUA defined it as peeing more than 8 times in ...Read more

Can frequent urination be first sign of pregnancy  only a week after having unprotected sex? I've beeb urinating almost every hour for the past 16

See a doctor!: Although you may be looking for an early sign of pregnancy (a quick home pregnancy test will answer that question), I am more concerned that frequent urination in this circumstance could represent a sexually transmitted disease (std). Frequent urination is a common symptom of std's, which is why i recommend you see your doctor for testing right away. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. It isn't healthy not to drink. Might want to cut down on things which will act like a diuretic like coffee or tea. There are many reasons for possible symptoms. Did your doctor check a fasting glucose level on you as sometimes people with diabetes feel thirsty and urinate more often. I don't know if you are having your period regularly. If not and the first pregnancy test was before or right at the time of a missed period, may wish to wait 7 days after a missed period and then retake the pregnancy test. I hope this might be helpful. Take care. ...Read more

Not everyone: Not everyone has nausea, breast tenderness or frequent urination in the first trimester.Some have all these symptoms and some have none or any combination of these symptoms and they can happen intermittently.The urinary frequency is the result of the growing uterus taking up bladder space and tends to increase as the pregnancy progresses.The nausea gets better as the pregnancy progresses.Best wish ...Read more

I am 23 years old. I have the IUD paragard and am sexually active I am having frequent urination and don't have a uti. My period is due the first week of april. Since my last period I have had one day where there was spotting. I did take a home pregnancy

If : If a patient continued to have frequent urination, or had burning with urination, flank pain, fever, or vomiting, then they may have a uti. Frequent urination can be caused by pressure on the uterus from pregnancy, so if there is suspicion, even if there was a negative pregnancy test, then repeating a test would be reasonable. Rarely, elevated blood sugar can cause increased urination, so if it continued or the patient had markedly increased thirst or dehydration, then the blood sugar should be checked; again that would be very rare. ...Read more

Can you get pregnant with a marina iud? My systems have been tenderness, pain and cramping with frequent urination, also being just drained and tired told my doc of pain with intercourse they said to try new ways of doing it. My boyfriend says he can feel

To : To answer the first part pf your question, yes you can get pregnant with an iud, however the chances of becoming pregnant with a correctly plasced iud are less than 5%.Your doctor should do an iud check to make sure it is in the correct location.Also, it sounds like you may be dealing with an infection, possibly a vaginal bacterial or yeast infection, or even std. On the other hand it may be a urinary tract infection. You should be tested for all of the above. Your boyfriend is likely feeling the string from the iud or the iud if it is misplaced. If it is the string then maybe it is too long and your doctor should cut it. I hope your issue is resolved soon. Take care. ...Read more

Am i pregnant? Tender breast, frequent urination, moody, sore breast since the first of april, increased appetite, veins showing, breast feel heavier, bloated, breast size increased.

If : If there is a possibility you could be pregnant, you should take a pregnancy test. You can either take a home pregnancy test as long as it has been 5- 6 weeks since your last normal period, or you can go see your doctor and they can test you. A home pregnancy test is 97% accurate if taken a week or more after the missed period and a doctor's test can tell around when you should be getting your next period. Good luck! ...Read more

I am experiencing very frequent urination today along with a really bad headache. I've gone 15 times in 4 hrs. Should i be worried?

Other symptoms?: Are you also drinking more than usual? Any fevers, abdominal or back pain, burning with urinating, unintentional weight loss? The two things that come to mind are a urinary tract infection (UTI) or problems with your blood sugars. A urinalysis would be helpful in screening for both, since it could show signs of a UTI or glucose (sugar) in your urine. I would see someone now to figure this out. ...Read more

I am 48 years old/hysterectomy 9yrs ago .Having frequent urination. Today I noticed a small amount of blood on the toilet paper. Should i be concerned?

Yes.: Your symptoms sound like a bladder infection. In addition to the frequent urination, the bladder can get so inflamed that you may also get blood in your urine. If your history is straightforward, we may be able to help you on a Virtual Consult. The Q/A part of HealthTap doesn't diagnose or treat patients. I hope this info is helpful in any case. ...Read more
