I'm 18 and for the past 1-2 months since I moved in with my BF i've had to pee like every 2 hours and its getting really aggravating. I never had this problem before but now its to the point of waking me up a couple times a night. Also i'll feel like I really have to go and when I end up going its only a little bit. I don't feel any pain down there at all I just always have to go. I don't have insurance or any $ to goto the doctors so i'm just hoping it's nothing. Can you tell me any possible things it could be? Some at home things or over the counter meds I can take to make it stop?

HI Nay,

That sounds really disruptive and uncomfortable.

Urinary tract infections are quite often accompanied by pain or discomfort, but the things you're describing here are also symptoms. We really can't tell you what this could be though. For one thing, we're not health care practitioners. For another, even health care practitioners wouldn't be able to diagnose you over the Net.


Honestly, since it's been going on for a couple of months without letting up at all, I think you will need to, if at all possible, see a doctor about this. If it is an infection, it's unlikely to go away without antibiotics, and could cause bigger problems if it were to get worse.

If you're comfortable leaving your zip code here, we can look to see if there are some low-cost clinics in your area. Alternatively, you could email your zipcode to me at robin at scarleteen dot com.

Hey, Nay.

Here's the website for your county's public health department, where you can likely get low-cost or no-cost healthcare: http://health.pendercountync.gov/

Want to try contacting them first?
