Yeast? UTI? STD?: This sounds like a yeast infection. However, the "can't hold urine" symptom could be from a bacterial urinary tract infection. Depending on sexual risks, an STD like chlamydia or gonorrhea is possible. Whatever the cause, it should be easy to diagnose and treat. See a doctor. It's probably nothing dangerous, but you still should be examined in the next couple of days. Good luck! ...Read more

I can not hold my urine, if I don't get to the bathroom it seems to start on its own. I have not control over it. I am 59 years old, it does not happen atlot but should not happen at all.

Unfortunately,: Unfortunately, this is not an uncommon problem for older women. If that's you, and if this has been going on for a while without any pain or blood in the urine, then you should probably look for a gynecologic urologist to help you out.

If you are a man, then this could represent something called overflow incontinence. Your prostate may be enlarged, which prevents you from fully emptuing your bladder. It then fills up quickly, reaching a point of being overly full; this starts an uncontrollable release of urine. If this is your case, then you should see a urologist for testing of your prostate.

If this is a new problem or if it is associated with pain or bleeding, then it could be a urinary tract infection. Talk to your regular doctor about a urine test a nd possible antibiotics. ...Read more

Should see specialis: The things that determine how urine flows out of the bladder are the position of the bladder compared to the tube that drains it - the urethra, the muscles around the bladder, and sometimes effects of medications. It is possible to have blockage of the tube. You should see a urologist to make sure that is not the case. ...Read more

So sorry: That problem is super common and so annoying, I'm so sorry you're going through that. The best is to have an exam by your gynecologist or a urogynecologist.

I was in a hurry to urinate, but had to hold my urine until I made it to the bathroom which has caused pain for three. Saw blood after using it.

Bladder infection?: A habit of chronically holding your urine does predispose you to bladder infections (burning, frequency, urgency when you pee), which can also cause bleeding. This would be the most likely explanation in this setting. If you are over age 50, however, you should have any visible blood in your urine checked by a physician to be sure it's not cancer. ...Read more

Two days ago I had to hold my urine in for 2 and half hours, now every time I urinate I get this weird tightness feeling and maybe burning. What is it?

Unclear but: It is possible that the weird feeling and tightness with possible pain while voiding represent a urinary tract infection. There is a saying: "stagnation favors infection" if no better soon, check with your family doc. A urinalysis is a very simple but informative test. If UTI is left untreated, it may cause kidney infection. ...Read more
