I’m a girl. And every time I masturbate I feel like I am going to pee or do pee. I know this isn’t squirting because I’ve done that before. This is different and upsetting. What could be happening?
First and foremost, as you know, we are not doctors. The information here should not take the place of a trained medical professional.
If you are indeed peeing or feel like you have to pee, this could be caused by what's called "stress incontinence." If that is what's going on, you may notice the same feeling of almost peeing or needing to pee when you cough, sneeze, lift heavy things... Or you may feel like it's really hard for you to hold pee for a long period of time. Sexual stimulation can also put pressure on your bladder during or before orgasm if you're experiencing stress incontinence.
If you are certain its pee and not fluid caused by an orgasm (squirting), talk to your doctor. They can tell you for sure what's going on and can work with you to discuss treatment possibilities. It's likely they'll suggest you do Kegel Exercises. See more about kegels here.
