When I had my first UTI I would try to hold in my urine because I was afraid to urinate because of the stinging and burning pain. I told my mother about this issue and she told me one thing that helped her be able to urinate because it was so uncomfortable after giving birth to me was pouring warm water down there as she urinated. She said this helped her ALOT and was thankful that the doctor gave her that option. Now when I have a UTI I remember to bring along a cup of warm water with me to the bathroom instead of being scared to go and most likely causing a bigger issue. I thought this would help somebody out there until they can get to a doctor.
