  • No one can answer this question.  Gotta go to the Dr.  It sounds like one, yes.  I'm not a Dr. though.

  • You probably have an infection, yes. What kind of infection is impossible to say without a pee test. Get to the doctor.

  • If feels like you have to keep going, cloudy, smells yes you do have one. Call doctor if can but since sunday get and drink some cranberry juice till then. But call as soon as you can otherwise it will get worse. Also since my daughter gets them alot avoid taking baths cause the soap and sitting in tub to long. also something about vaginal wipes might help.

  • GO TO THE DOCTOR!! If you let a bladder infection go to long it becomes a KIDNEY infection, not something to mess with. No home remedies, go to the doctor!

  • Could be. However I had these symptoms for 2 months that wouldn't go away, feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, then straining to try to finish. No pain though. I ended up with no infection, but blood in my urine. I've had (microscopic) blood in my urine for months now. I was referred to apology and still undergoing testing one CT scan and US later. Next is my cystoscopy. See a dr. They need to check your urine. The blood in mine was not visible by eye.
