Incontinence

Bladder problem

10/22/2007

Question:

I am 17 years old, female and I been having problems with my bladder. Lately I noticed a cloudy look to my urine, and sometimes I pee my pants. But when I pee my pants I have no pain nor do I feel the urine come out. Sometimes I urinate a lot more but in small amounts. I rarely have pain in my lower abdomen so I have no clue what the problem can be. Can you be any help to me?

Answer:

There can be several causes of this problem. The most common would be a urethral diverticulum which is a small outpouching in which urine collects and drains intermittently. You will need to see a urologist who can do the exams and X-rays needed (usually an MRI) to diagnose and treat your problem.
