Some people don't have pain when they have an infection. You don't say if you are male or female, but if you are male, it could be that your prostate is swollen for some reason. This can cause a constriction of the urethra.


Do you have a fever? Any low back pain?

Hi


Well, it isn't necessarily dangerous if you are emptying totally most of the time. If urine is staying stagnant in the bladder it could make you more prone to infection. You will know though if you start getting a lot of infections.


As long as it isn't bothering you too much, you might wait and mention it at your next appointment.
