Should I be concerned that my daughter is going to the bathroom (to pee) more often after her shot?

Since her 11-year-old shot, she's been going to the bathroom more. Is this a sign of puberty?

What type of shot are you talking about?? Usually shots, unless their are diauretics, will not incease unrination. I have never heard that puberty inceases the peeing. But if it is signifigan (amount) and it is a constant problem, and is associated with greater thirst or tiredness-- SEE MD ASAP

This is not a sign of puberty. She could be drinking more fluids after the shot. It could also be due to a urinary tract infection (UTI). I recommend that you call her pediatrician and discuss this.
