If you’re well hydrated you’ll urinate more. If you’re dehydrated you’ll urinate less. It’s a good thing to be urinating often, keeps you & your kidneys healthy, although I can sympathize with the frequency. After I switched to water after drinking soda nearly as often as possible, I spent days (it felt like it) peeing! It eventually evened itself out (months, I’d say) but I’d rather pee more than not as much.

FromA2B2013:  Frequent and excessive urination can also be a symptom of diabetes. Just another reason to seek medical attention from a doctor, not a wedding website.

Have you been drinking more caffeine lately? Normally when I drink a lot of coffee, I need to pee more frequently.

FromA2B2013:  Frequency wouldn’t worry me but you’re also describing urgency. (i.e. can’t make it to the next destination). I’d get check out just to make sure. When I saw the thread title I thought the same as PP, diabetes.

julies1949:  Yes. Particularly if accompanied by excessive hunger and thirst. Best to see the doctor if only to r/o UTI.

Some medications can cause that symptom as well, and if it’s that bad you might want to switch.  So I agree – talking with your doctor is a good idea!

What sorts of things are you drinking? I have this problem, and after ruling out other things with a Dr, she told me that it was probably sugar irritating my bladder and that I needed to cut out sugar drinks…soda, fruit juice, sweetened tea, coffee, whatever

I haven’t done that tbh because it’s really difficult lol

FromA2B2013:  That can be a sign of diabetes. If you have that combined with any other symptoms like weight change, often thirsty, lack of energy, dizziness, I would consult a doctor immediately. I would still suggest seeing a doctor, but the diabetes thing was the first thing to come to mind. Worst case scenario eh? Haha

FromA2B2013:  I have the same issues as you! And I don’t drink too much water lol there are days where I am okay and other days I have to pee all the time sometimes 5 times in 20 mins.. but I do know that I always have to pee every morning like around 2am-6am . I went to the doctors they tested did blood test, everything came out OK, no diabetes or anything. they did mention I may just have a small bladder? Lol…

FromA2B2013:  you should go to the doctor and get checked just incase. Sometimes people have a uti without the stinging or other symptoms. You are suffering from urgency and frequency so you should get checked as it still could be a uti.

There are a lot of factors at play here, but I’ll tell you what I know. If you have more than 8 urinations per day, it is considered to be overactive bladder/urge incontinence. This is usually due to the nerves over stimulating your detrusor bladder muscle. One of the things that can exacerbate this is citrus foods, and I saw that you mentioned fruit juice above. As PP have said, UTI can also be a huge contributor so you will need to go to the MD for a urinalysis. Like I said, there’s a lot of factors at play, so other things to consider are obesity, and atrophic vaginitis (if your estrogen is low, you weaken vaginal lining and cause bladder urgency). Hope that holds you over until you can get in to see the doctor! Good luck!

Well this is what happened when I had a bladder infection. There was no burning, I just had to urinate frequently.
