Question: constant (yet false) urgency - oversensitive urethra?


 poodle - Wed Apr 07, 2004 7:23 pm

I'm seeing the gynecologist about this on Thursday but I don't want to wait that long for answers. I seem to have an overly irritable/oversensitive/just plain messed up urethra. Maybe it's just not quite in the right place though. Anyway, these things irritate my urethra very much: alchohol, caffeine, and SEX! During sex, I feel a strong urgency to urinate even if I had just urinated shortly beforehand. Usually, I rush to the bathroom afterwards (sometimes even call a time-out to visit the bathroom) to find that hardly any urine comes out. Then I struggle for several hours with constant but false urgency. This happened several nights ago, and it died down apparently after I took some Detrol LA (I had a very similar problem about a year ago, Detrol was sort of useless, but I took two of the leftover capsules anyway). Now the constant urgency is back for no apparent reason other than that I drank a decaf latte a few hours ago but no normal urethra would freak out about that, right? What's going on there and how is it treated? How invasive are the treatments?

User avatar Hi!

Sorry for the late reply. I suppose you have already been to your gynecologist by now. Was a urnialysis done? What did you find out from your visit to the doctor?
