The gp probably won’t do much. I did have my blood tested and it showed I’m peri but blood tests are not really accurate because they fluctuate so much. It’s usually diagnosed by symptoms. I’m in a few fb pages that have tons of confused women joining to query odd goings on.
Do you do any pelvic floor exercises? It sounds like a weak pelvic floor to me. It should improve after a couple of months of daily pelvic floors. The ligaments get softer at different times of the month, due to hormone changes and can stay altered after menopause which is why you are getting symptoms. You could visit a specialist woman's physiotherapist. They can help you measure your fluid intake and bladder output. If you are drinking lots then that's causing the big wees.
Are you drinking because you are thirsty or because you think you should drink that much. The advice given is 1.2 litres per day. I drink a bit more than that but am cutting down. Like you I needed to pee a lot. My doc told me not to drink too much. Looks like you are probably having 4 litres including your teas and coffee. Way too much. No wonder you are peeing a lot
