Quite possible.: If the bladder is too full the tampon can be in the back of the bladder- urine will be leaked. Some times if tampons stay too long can give rise to foul smell & lead to infections. It is good to change often enough depending on the blood flow.

The: The only way to be sure of the status of your urine is to have a formal urinalysis (ua) done by your doctor. Multiple things are screened for in a ua including protein, glucose, nitrites, white blood cells etc. Your doctor will be able to interpret the results and decide on additional testing. You may need an urologist evaluation in order to determine if there are any abnormalities of your urinary tract, which would explain the change in your stream.
Good luck. ...Read more
