Why do I have a tingling sensation right after I pee?Urology Gynaecology Health & Fitness
I’m a 22 year old female. 3 days back, I realised that I've been peeing more than usual. There was also little droplets of blood. Even though I have peed just a few minutes back, I still have that sensation that I have to still go. And right after I’m done, there’s a tingling feel. I don’t feel any pain or such, just the tingle and frequent visits to the toilet even though I just peed previously. Do let me know what is wrong with me because it’s quite worrying. Thank you!
Hi, the symptoms that you have described are very typical of a UTI (urinary tract infection).
Commonly, UTIs caused:
1. Spots of blood in your urine
2. Frequent urge to pass urine
3. Tingling or burning sensation when you pee
Your GP can do a simple urine test to determine if it is indeed a UTI. He can also rule out other potential causes of your symptoms, such as STDs, eg. gonorrhoea and chlamydia.
UTIs are easily treated with a course of antibiotics, and do not go away by themselves, so it's prudent to pay a visit to the doctor soon to get checked out and treated.
