When I have to use the restroom it burns to pee. Could this be a UTI and if left untreated is there any chance of death?

Also, it's too hard for me to use the restroom at school if there's too many girls in the restroom. What's wrong with me?

  • Maybe I should also mention I've held it atleast once week in school (until I got to lunch/able class) for atleast a couple years. I was afraid to ask the teachers some times, sometimes we wern't allowed to go and if I seen a girl/s not leaving the restroom I'd leave without going (out of fear.)Is that enough info.?

  • You should not be afraid to use the restroom at school - Have you spoke to someone about this? Is someone bothering you? Maybe you should talk to your counselor. You should see your doctor about the burning when you urinate so you can be diagnosed and treated. Holding it in is NOT a good idea. Good luck! MM :)

If it is a UTI you need to treat it, or you could really end up with major problems. NEVER HOLD YOUR URINE! This is very harmful. We need to urinate to help release toxins in the body, if you hold it in, you are holding in toxins. PLEASE don't do this! You should be urinating at least 6-7 times a day. Your urine should be light yellow - if it is dark, then you are dehydrated and need to drink more water. Do you have any history of sexual abuse or trauma? Best wishesDOM

  • First of all, NEVER hold your urine when you have to go. Don't be afraid to ask teachers to let you go use the restroom, everyone has to go. If they don't let you, have you parent/guardian write a note that it's imperiative that you use the restroom. Also, don't be shy about using the restroom when other girls are in there. EVERYONE does it, there is no need to be shy. I would perhaps talk to your counselor about your feelings with this and he/she should help you sort it out. :) Now, with the burning. Please go to a doctor right away to get that taken care of. Your doctor will probably do a urinalysis(where you urinate in a cup), to see if there is bacteria in your urine. If there is bacteria in your urine, he/she will treat it will antibiotics. If you don't go get this taken care of, and if it's a UTI, it can spread up to your kidneys and you have a bigger problem that what you started with. Please get it taken care of right away. I hope you feel better!
