Question: frequent urine urgency....please help....due to masturbation???

 champoo - Sun Aug 02, 2009 5:52 pm


I am 21. Almost 1 year has passed and I am facing this frequent urine urgency problem. I have to pass it out almost after every 2 hrs.........i need to wake up twice at night.......To cope up with my busy life......I keep holding it till I get free... Sometimes when I feel like peeing....I doesnt come out so easily i.e I have to sit for almost 5-10 minutes and wait.....I m really depressed as I have masturbated alot in last 2 years...I have stopped now but still no improvement is seen.

I consulted a doctor and he did many tests.....such as bladder inflamation test through ultrasound..and tests relating to urine chemicals etc.........all were fine.....he finally said that its psychological......but sir/madam.......there must be some treatment....i cant live out my whole life with it...

please help me......thanking u in advance.

User avatar Hello,Now that you know the problem is not organic but in the mind the treatment necessarily should be directed to anxiety control.I am sure you can find psychological support from trained personnel.Very soon you can get over this by this method to get over the guilt complex of masturbation,the culprit behind this apparent problem.Best wishes.
