Patients who have previously had C/sections have had the bladder dissected off of the uterus and replaced post delivery. This can cause scarring(adhesions) of the bladder to the uterus with frequent UTI's & retention. ...Read more

Is this the result of a small bladder, I go to the toilet more than others usually. Also when I go to the toilet I don't go for very long.

Is this the result of a small bladder, I go to the toilet more than others usually. Also when I go to the toilet I don't go for very long.

Likely: For someone your age, the answer is likely, yes you have a smaller bladder or even more likely you have a more sensitive bladder which triggers your body to go urinate when it is even slightly full of urine. You are likely too young to have a prostate issue and infections not as common in men and you would think you would have some pain with urination. To be safe, see an MD to check your urine. ...Read more
