Hey everyone, here is my story.

For the past year or so I've been going to the bathroom more and more. I am 19 years old, don't drink sodas (at least for seven years), don't drink liquor, and don't smoke.

Unlike other threads about frequency, I don't feel a burning sensation nor do I have an urgency to go the bathroom at night. Nightime is actually the only time I get relief.

But my problem actually arises in the fact that I sometimes have to force the urine out. And even with that, I get the feeling to go within half an hour (usually). Most of the time it feels like I'm retaining fluid in my penis. That feeling is really what bothers.

I'd appreciate any insight or information. Thanks alot.

  • See a doctor. You could have diabetes or a UTI(urinary tract infection). But that's only a guess. Those two conditions can be easily ruled out. And if your regular doctor can't find anything, he/she should refer you to an urologist. Let me know how you make out.

  • I'm 20, so I am close to your age, and I have Interstitial Cystitis. I also have Pelvic floor dysfunction, which is often seen in IC patients. Now, don't go taking me the wrong way and think I'm saying you might have IC, b/c I don't want you to think that, but I would check into the PFD thing, because That makes me feel like I have to go allllll the time because it is making my pelvic muscles squeeze everything together, and to top it off iut takes me like and hour (not literally) before I can actually pee because they have to relax. I dunno, jus thought this might help. Do you have any other symptoms?
