I'm an 18yo ciswoman, lesbian, only recently become sexually active, have used the contraceptive pill for a few years, but stopped last week. Now that we have some background, let's move on to the problem.
I have bladder issues. I need to pee all the time, and when I do go to the toilet, I pee a lot, so combine that with the frequency and I'm producing a lot of urine. But that's not the problem, the problem is, that I can't control my bladder very well. This morning, when I got up, for the second time in a fortnight, I wet my pants. And I'm not talking a little bit of leakage either, I'm talking full bladder emptying. It's hugely embarrassing, and awkward to talk about.
I have however, been to the doctor about this. Twice. The first time, which was when this problem was just starting, the doc dipped a stick in some of my pee and told me I was perfectly normal and to go home and just try to hold on. The second doctor sent me for a few blood tests (I haven't had a chance to get to the lab yet) and told me to just hold on.
I'm going to try and get to the lab today, but I'm really rather upset and worried and have no idea what this is and was wondering if any of you lovely people had been in any similar situations, or had any idea what it could be. I have a feeling no one is going to laugh at me here, and that's really important.
