User :   hello?
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   I am Dr. XXX
User :   I have a problem D: User :   Hello, im 15 years old. and i honestly dont know whats going on. Since about last week i've had accidents at school and at home and i have to pee like every 40 minutes and it only comes out about 2 teaspoons and my bladder cant hold it. I've tried holding it but i just cant. and it sucks cause im at school, you know. they dont let us go to the bathroom every 40 minutes. we only get 2 bathroom breaks. one in the morning and one in the afternoon. when this happened, i was lucky enough to be the only one in the locker room for gym so i had extra clothes to get cleaned up & stuff. is this normal? do i have a weak bladder? i tried talking to my mom about it but she doesnt do anything about it, she just says the same line she always says; "You're fine"
Doctor :   Let me read the query
User :   ok thankyou
Doctor :   It is definitely not normal to have the urge to urinate every 40 minutes
Doctor :   For how long have you been having this problem ?
User :   about 1-2 weeks
User :   i tried telling my mom but she deoesnt really care. so i dnt kno what to do
Doctor :   How many glasses of water you drink on an average everyday ?
User :   today? hmm... i havent drank water all day and i urinated about 9 times today.. maybe even 10.. i wasnt keeping count
Doctor :   I would recommend to measure it for a couple of days and try reducing the water intake. If the problem still persists then you should get a urine test done. Urine microscopy and routine
