Question: Is Frequent Urination a Sign of Miscarriage?

I'm six weeks pregnant and I feel like I'm in the bathroom all the time. Is frequent urination a warning sign of miscarriage?

Answer:

Rest easy; frequent urination is not a sign of miscarriage. It is actually just a normal symptom of early pregnancy. However, if you're having pain with urination, it's possible that you may have a urinary tract infection (UTI). If so, talk to your doctor for advice. Urinary tract infections aren't linked to miscarriage either, but untreated UTis may increase your risk of giving birth prematurely.
