Does an excessive post-nasal drip due to sinusitis cause mucus in the urine ?

Hello, I m 22 yr/f. I ve been having urinary disorders for about 8 months.I had UTI for a long time and took lots of antibiotics and my last urine culture showed no bacteria or other problems. but, i still find it hard to pass urine normally.i have to press my abdomen to empty my bladder and i usually can t completely empty it so i need to go to the toilet again shortly, plus I can see thick mucus in my urine, which I feel, causes me this inability to empty my bladder.I have this case mostly when I have excessive post-nasal drip due t sinusitis .does this drip have anything to do with my urinary disorder?or can it be caused by some genital tract infection?thanks a lot and sorry for the long query.

Thanks for writing to us.

Having difficulty in passing urine at such a young age is most likely to be due to bladder irritation. Decreased fluid intake, having hot and spicy foods, acidic fruit intake, etc might be the responsible reasons. Passage of slight amount of mucus is normal- may be aggravated by infection. Taking bladder relaxants will help your symptoms after consulting a urologist.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
