Frequent Urination

Frequent Urination: Frequent urination means needing to urinate more often than usual. Urgent urination is a sudden, compelling urge to urinate, along with discomfort in your bladder. Most people can sleep for 6 to 8 hours without having to urinate. Middle aged and older men often wake to urinate once in the early morning hours.

Frequent and urgent urination are classic signs of urinary tract infection. Diabetes, pregnancy, and prostate problems are common causes of these symptoms. Other causes include: alcohol use, anxiety, bladder cancer (not a common cause), caffeine and enlarged prostate or infection of the prostate.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are very common. They can be painful and uncomfortable, but they usually pass within a few days. If you develop a UTI, you're likely to feel:
  •     pain or a burning sensation when urinating (doctors refer to this as dysuria)
  •     a need to urinate often
  •     pain in the lower abdomen (tummy)

If you find your symptoms very uncomfortable or if they last for more than five days, see your doctor.


Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal remedies
