Very true.... they are common (especially for females) and at least a few of the people you come in contact with every day probably have an active urinary tract infection. Also, you don't actually have to pee every 10 minutes, but it definitely feels like it. Try bargaining with your family for a pit stop every 2 hours. Also, get some cranberry pills (ask the pharmacist if you don't know what they are) and take some vitamin C. Both will help you get over the infection sooner.
i've actually found that enduring the discomfort of holding it eventually stops that sensation. it's giving in and going to the bathroom constantly that makes me feel worse. if you can, stop in to a vitamin shop and get some d-mannose capsules. those things work like MAGIC on UTIs. it's actually better if you don't take antibiotics, which can kill the good bacteria in your system and allow the bad bacteria to build up a resistance.
Yes, they are contagious. But I doubt the OP would do that with her family ... Water bottles won't be much help to a woman. And on top of all the nuisance her company would cause the family, she could be in serious pain. So: this is the time to suck it up and stay at home.
The above people are totally right when they tell you to stop going so often to relieve the urge. I'm doing it today until I can make it the doctor. Drink lots of water and cranberry juice (not cocktail), and don't go until your bladder is full. Then go to the bathroom but as soon as you finish urinating, stop trying! Repeat process until the pain no longer returns. Side note: This only helps deal with symptoms and will not kill the infection. You should see your doctor about that.
LOL vanita is stupid. UTIs are NOT contagious. you can have sex while on a uti (though it's not recommended because it could make things worse) and your partner WILL NOT catch it from you. it's not an STD, it's an infection that is not sexually transmitted. it occurs when bacteria gets pushed into the urethra
Lots of sex can give you UTIs (well, for girls anyway), but so can lots of things. It's true that holding it will do it; I had tons of UTIs as a kid due to that. But I think maybe the first commenter was suggesting that it's best not to go every 10 minutes, the way you feel you have to with a UTI. Because you don't ACTUALLY have to pee that often with a UTI, you just feel that way.
its funny i saw this fml. a couple days ago i heldin my pee aaaall day because i have a nervous bladder and it is impossible to use the restroom when i know someone can hear. now i cannot stop peeing! it doesnt burn but once a finish a get a pretty harsh pain, will this just go away?
