    Cancer of the Prostate

    Hello, I am a 41 year old male. I've got issues with my many visits to the loo to urinate. When it is at it's worse I can urinate with no problems all, but within a few minutes I suddenly get the urge to go again and I will visit the loo again & urinate just as much as the previous visit. The feeling to urinate doesn't creep up on me, it's quite sudden. This sort of comes and goes and has been for around 6 months. I have had no issues whilst asleep. I do have a appointment with my GP to discuss this, but I thought I would ask here prior to my visit. Thanks

    hurts when I urinate, it is very slow and a bulge near rectum. Sometimes I cannot urinate for 12 hours due to the lump but my body wants to urinate but nothing will come out.... so much pain. When I eventually urinate, I also have wet stool.

    I am 20 years old. I often have frequent need to urinate more than most people. This is a particular occurrence at night when trying to get to sleep and i can sometimes wake up up to 3 times a night needing to urinate. I always will wake up at least once at night and will need to go. It is not often a desperate need to urinate but often feels like i still have some retained in my bladder. I'm not sure if this is related to my kidneys or prostate. I notably ejaculate a rather large amount and immediately following will need to urinate. Occasionally about 5 minutes after having defecated I will have to run to the bathroom to urinate as it feels as if i relax i will loose control of my bladder. Just getting concerned as to what could cause this

    Hello. I'm not sure if this is the right place to go to but I have a problem which is concerning me a bit. A couple of weeks ago, I had sudden urges to go to the toilet and in one day, I went about eight times. However, the strange thing is that afterwards I started getting the opposite feeling of urine filling my bladder was full and a feeling of urine in my penis yet no urge whatever to urinate. I feel no pain or burning sensation when I pee. I went to my GP and gave a urine sample which strangely came back normal. I was just wondering if anybody has had the same experience?

    I recently observed some semen on the tip of my penis before I urinate, and I also see some on my boxers or pants. I don't feel any pain during or after I urinate, is anything wrong with me?! I started observing it after I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend. I don't know if was as a result of the sex or it's because I became curious after the sex. Please help me out!

    Hi I am 23. I have recently and all of a sudden got chronic pain in my vulva and inside my vagina. I cannot use tampons, it hurts to urinate and sex is just impossible. It has swollen up so there is barely even a vagina entrance so I can't even use tampons. I'm fed up and it is ruining my new relationship. The skin on the entrance seems redder and thicker

    My advice would be to have yourself checked for possible infection. my wife got like that and she had a severe infection. better to be safe than sorry. Good luck.

    Its just to let people know that cystitis doesn't just cause burning when you urinate or discomfort.. or even the need to urinate. i suffered for more than 8 months with sudden sharp acute pains and sometimes throbbing- which lasted from 3hours to a whole day. The pain, when it did occur, got increasingly worse till i had a full blown fever and was in agony. The night it was that bad i went to A and E and found out that it was a serious bladder infection. I initally dismissed having cystitis because i didn't follow convential symptoms.. despite this i still checked out my urine with my local GP. i did two urine tests and i got told that i didn't have a urine infection... then i later found out they made me do the urine tests in the wrong sample bottle. So anyone reading this who might think that they have cystitis and don't follow the normal symptoms - go and check it out, and make sure that they give you the right urine sample bottle !

    I'm 27 and I've struggled to urinate properly for a few years, most of the time it's a very weak stream and whereas when I was younger I felt like I was finished, I now don't know how far I am along or if I've properly finished yet, often pushing out a few bursts that I didn't know were there. I have a feeling of dull pressure in my pubic area especially when I have an erection which feels like an overwhelming need to urinate and I've had to stop during sex to urinate in the past, as well as it being the only thing I can concentrate on. Can anyone help?

    you just have to let nature take its course, there isn't a way to make them all of a sudden bigger but believe me all of a sudden they'll probably pop up out of no where hun

    Im only 18 years old and even though i am not diagnosed with IBS i'm pretty sure i have it. The symptoms i have have been occuring since i was 16. Mine is always unexpected, i will feel great and be able to do anything and then all of a sudden il get this sudden sharp cramp in my stomach, like really bad period pain, and then i'll suddenly just have to go to the toilet. The one thing i noticed is that it always happens pretty much straight after i've had a big meal. As i've grown up with it, i am now more aware of when it may happen. But the only problem that i have is that i'll go weeks without any problemsand i'll think i'm fine and then all of a sudden, it comes back again. Is this normal? I've not tried taking any medication for it yet, but i feel its got to the point were i need too. Do pills from the chemist or supermarkets do any good?

    Hey, yes it's hard but it's something we gotta to deal with. The best advice I can give is to keep positive And to rule out all options. Im starting to think that I may actually have an over active bladder. This makes you feel as if you need to urinate before you bladder has filled enough to urinate. To combat this, I've tried drinking a regular amount and timing when I feel the urge to when I can actually urinate. This has helped a bit but I still need to speak to a specialist to properly control this condition. Hope you find some answers soon!

    I'm a 19 year old girl and i have been suffering with bladder problems for about a month now.

    Hi im 59 and im having pain and trouble urinating and ejaculating. This started quite recently and i think its because my son in law cut my penis off fully up to where the foreskin ends. Doctors have stitched me up. I can only urinate normally once in the morning but when i need to urinate afterwards i have to use a thin tube to get it out. What should i do know? Please help.

    My periods have always followed a regular pattern. Heavy for day one and two, then a very light flow for perhaps another five days. Just recently, on day three or four, I've had a sudden unexpected gush, resulting in me flooding onto the sheets. I can get through a super sized tampon and a pad in less than three hours at a time when my flow has usually been decreasing. Apparently I am not anaemic but my iron level is at six. The doctor just said my body can't store iron anymore and I wondered if this sudden loss of blood was causing that? I also have bloating, diarrhoea, lower abdominal pain, breathlessness, heart palpitations and fatigue but all that has been attributed to IBS. Any thoughts as to why I have this sudden heavy flow?

    Your best bet is to ask for a ultrasound scan to check for a cyst or large fibroid. If nothing is found, and it continues to be like this, I would insist on seeing a gynae and check for other reasons, like endometriosis. The reason why I say this is because IBS is the most common diagnosis from doctors over our women troubles and quite often it is incorrect, or just something that just happens as well as womens troubles, but in my mind, it should be something diagnosed when everything else has been checked. IBS should not give you palpitations, breathlessness or fatigue. Good luck to you!

    By the way, what was the reason your doc said you couldn't store iron anymore? There are not many causes, surgery or something like Crohn's disease or celiac disease can stop the body storing it, but if he hasn't checked you for anything like this I would question his diagnosis. In the mean time, please get yourself some liquid iron - it is gentle on the tummy and shouldn't make your IBS troubles any worse. Pills can be very hard going. It really can make you feel better - it did me!

    Im a 15 year old male and have small white spots on the head of my penis, they don't cause any pain or discomfort but I would like to know what they are. Also, when I go to toilet sometimes it hurts when I urinate,I went to the doctors about this and did a urine sample, they said everything was ok, but it still hurts when I urinate.

    I am a 24 year old female and have suffered with urge incontinence for about 5 years. I've been prescribed 2 different types of medication, the latest one I've been taking for nearly a year and was effective. I could hold on for longer, and didn't need to urinate as many times in a day as before. I've cut out caffeine as well and this has also helped. But just recently I've started having bad epiisodes again, of needing to go to the toilet, all of a sudden and very desperately! I plan my journeys around where the nearest toilet will be and it is on my mind all the time, it is very restricting. I don't know what else I can do? I have considered hypnotherapy, as I do wonder whether alot of it is psychological, after weting myself a few years ago, I panic when I need to go and there's no toilet nearby that it's going to happen again! Any advice would be welcome!
