Difficulty in passing urine for lab tests - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : hi
User : hello Dr. I have an interesting and somewhat embarassing problme
Doctor : how can i help you?
User : Hi... so I recently got a new job
User : and have to perform a Urine drug test
User : I normally have no problem urinating in public... but have had much difficulty urinating for doctors and for drug tests in the past
User : i have done some research and it seems that I have what is called Paruresis
User : allthough a mild case
User : anyway... I went to take my drug test and could not provide a sample after 3 tries
Doctor : ok
User : and they told me that they would have to mark my test as 'refused test'
User : anyway... my employer is allowing me to take another test
User : but i am extremely afraid that I will not be able to provide a sample and that it will lead to me getting fired
User : in my research online... I have found that many others have had similar problems... and one possible solution is to use a urinary catheter... I am wondering 1. if this is a good idea... 2. if the testing facility would allow it... and 3. do i need a perscription to get one
Doctor : i understand
Doctor : are u there?
