    Hi Kim

    I'm sure it's nothing to worry about, but I get this too. I have it when I'm having my period, but also when I have a uti/cystitis. Probably a good idea to get it checked, but for me it comes and goes but I know it's not a nice feeling. I didn't get it before taking bhrt. Good luck, and try not to worry xx

    Until I read your post I had forgotten about that symptom. I had similar feelings when urinating last year, not each time but often enough that O thought it was a UTI. But everything below was fine. I always felt it at the end of the stream, almost a pulling type of pressure. Strange sensation, indeed. It just stopped happening as mysteriously as it began.

    I hate that my body appears to be sampling each of the 66 symptoms on that list.....😒

      Hi Kim...I want to say it went away after the summer ended because I realized one day I didnt feel it an th more. That was in September after school began, I teach so it bothered me the entire summer break. Bleh!!!

      And yes I think I peed like every hour on the hour! So I would curtail my fluids if I knew I'd be out and about.

      Yes, indeed this is all part of the menopause game! Knowing what I know now, I can reach back to other women who are just beginning this ride and tell you to fasten your seat belt for a bumpy ride! You will think you're dying of a different dread disease every other day, but I promise you...we will both come out this tunnel just fine.
