Dear customer

Thank you for replying back.

The symptoms your daughter is having is medically called as urinary retention.The main causes of this are:

  • For women – one of the common causes of difficultly in urination is an anterior prolapse / bladder prolapse which can distort the urethra and restrict the flow of urine.
  • Obstruction to the flow of urine through the urethra
  • Weak bladder muscle
  • Nerve damage from diabetes, stroke, or spinal cord injuries
  • Blockages, such as a stone or growth

A pelvic exam will be done to check for blockages.She needs to be evaluated by urologist and following tests are recommended:

She may need to be catheterize & prescribed with antibiotics and other medications accordingly.So my best advise for her is to make an urgent appointment with urologist to have these tests done so as to know the exact underlying cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.

Hope this helped.
