Our son, 10, just shared with us last night that he a few times over the last several days has felt like he has to go pee, but when he gets in there doesn't have to go. Clearly this is a sign of possible UTI. I get that, I've got that under control etc. Seeing he just shared us last night and really couldn't say how often or how long it's been going on we decided to hold off seeing the doctor. Our son suggested to us that he should journal, write down other times it happens so we have a better picture. All 3 of us (hubby, myself, and I) agreed that was the best course of action for now.
Although, we have also noticed that he has started to go through some changes, etc. Which made me ask hubby last night is it possible that he's getting erections and confusing it for having to pee. We are not ruling out UTI and if I need to I will take him to get to the doctor. It just something that crossed my mind. DH was no help, he said he couldn't remember or think back to early on like that.
I know it's possible for him to be getting erections. My question is could he be confusing that for having to pee? I know you are all a bunch of mom's and maybe clueless like me, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask. I tried googling, but everything that I seen had to do with infants and toddlers. I'm looking for more OPINIONS here then anything else. I would/have seek medical help from my doctor.

My DH never thinks he has to pee when he has an erection.... he thinks he needs to uh... do something else with it. Sounds like UTI.
