  • Could this be CI?

    Last week I started noticing what I think are spasms in my urethra. I have an urge to pee that comes and goes, and when I do go to the bathroom not much comes out. I thought maybe I had a UTI, but I have no burning, or odd colored urine. I'm almost 30 years old and since having my 2 daughters I've had a week bladder. I pee when I sneeze, laugh, you name it. I'm glad I stumbled onto this sight, b/c I think this might be what I have. Any suggestions? I'm trying to stay away from the doctor as long as I can b/c I don't have insurance.

    Edited to add, I think I got my title wrong, it should be IC, right?

    Cough, Sneeze stuff is incontinence. There is a surgery that can fix it.

    My symptoms are in my signature.
    I have a sensation of what I can a backward UTI pain.. It hurts after I pee.

      I really encourage you to see a urologist to find out what's going on with you. It sounds like you may have stress incontinence, which can be helped.

      Warm hugs,
      Stay safe
