Eddy has the best one I think, at least for Spain. You might say Tengo que irme, or more colloquially "Pues, ya me voy"

which, more or less, is like "Well, I'm off now"

No, I simply meant "I need to go (leave)".

Jordan, your question seems to have been answered, but if I heard a woman say "I need to go," I might, depending on the context, point to the nearest restroom. But maybe that wasn't what you were asking...

Yes, I didn't point that out. If you are just leaving use as in your case "irme", however, if you are leaving to go another specific place, use "ir a"

Hi Jordan. You don't change the o to a when it comes to verbs, though you do with some adjectives and nouns. So you can say "necesito irme", or "tengo que irme". The "irme" part gives it a sense of leaving the place you're at.

Even if the verbs is compound, say "Me he quedado un rato más", you don't change the participle (quedado). You do change it, however, in a sentence like "Estoy aburrida". Here aburrida functions as an adjective. Hope this helps you see the difference!

As a start, "to have to" is translated as "tener que". Now conjugate tener and add the "to go" part.
