Not while urinating.
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
The symptoms consistent with bladder spasms which can be due to a condition called overactive bladder. It does not sound like cystitis. I would recommend that you get into see your doctor for an examination and a urologist would be ideal. They can start you on a medication such as oxybutynin which is designed to stop bladder spasms to see if this cures your symptoms. Hope this helps and let me know if you have questions.

Stress can contribute to the problem but it is not the underlying cause. Your missed periods likely have nothing to do with this. Stress can contribute to miss periods but it is not the cause of your urinary symptoms.

You there?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Premature menopause is not the cause of your urinary symptoms. I can't tell if you are going through menopause as the cause of your missed periods though. You need to see your gynecologist about that

Ok thanks.I normally have a weak bladder after 4 children like when I sneeze etc.
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
A urologist can definitely help you with that. You should be referred to a pelvic floor physical therapist to help strengthen your urinary sphincter.
