I am quite worried as have been reading posts on urea

Customer Question

I am quite worried as have been reading posts on urea plasma, I am 16 weeks pregnant and have a slight urge to urinate more however UTi was not indicated. Why is urea plasma not routinely tested if it causes so many problems, should I get tested.

Hello

slight urgency is common in pregnancy.

urea plasma is not a common problem and does not commonly cause problems.

not sure where you are getting this.

In very rare cases, the organism, if the mother is infected can cause problems with the placenta and miscarriae.

Again, it is not common.

As long as you are not infected, I do not see a concern.

Should I get tested and if I was to become positive should I be worried, I have just been reading horrible stories on the internet
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 6 months ago.

I don't think you need to get tested, but I think it would probably ease your mind.

Okay how do I get tested, and would I need treatment if it was positive
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I feel I should stop reading about this, are there usually any symptoms
Expert:  Dr. Thomas, MD replied 6 months ago.

You would have probably had a urinary tract infection.

You simple get a urine culture that tests for it.

Your doctor can do it.

I think you would be spending better money if you get treatment for the anxiety.

That would be with a professional who can teach you cognitive behavioral therapy, which is very effective. please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-dr-thomas/
