Urine issues - advice really appreciated!

Hi guys sorry for the details 🫣 but I had my laparoscopy surgery about 3.5months ago and mirena fitted at the same time. For the last few weeks, I’ve had this need to pass urine really often and I need to go so urgently that if I don’t, I’d end up leaking 🫤.

It’s got to the point where I have to plan when I drink water / how long it’ll be before I have access to a bathroom and makes socialising etc so tricky at times 😞.

I was just wondering if anyone has experienced the same / has any advice. Would be super grateful! X

Hallo! Sounds like a UTI or infection. I’d go to your GP to get it checked out x

Thanks - I was wondering this but was also thinking if could be weakened pelvic floor muscles from after surgery 🤔

I would agree definitely get checked for a UTI and if that is negative then you GP can pursue other options for wha it’s causing it.If it is a UTI even. few days on antibiotics should see a big improvement.

Thank you! I’ve never had a UTI before so never knew those were the symptoms. Thanks for the advice :D
