What causes urge to urinate?

default
Posted on Thu, 21 May 2015
Question: About two months ago, I was urinating and a few seconds after I was done, I felt like urinating again, but I couldn't. I kept on having this feeling of wanting to urinate for about 15 minutes until it went away. This has never happened to me, and it has not happened again. I am wondering what could have caused it.
