Brief Answer:
You have frequency with urgency of urination.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for your query. Based on the facts that you have posted, it appears that you have increased frequency of micturition and urgency of urination.

Increased frequency of micturition can be due to either UTI or cold atmosphere.

Please get your routine urine test done to rule out UTI.

Urgency of micturition is due to involuntary contractions of the bladder (Over Active Bladder Syndrome) that may be is associated with UTI.

Please take bladder antispasmodics like Solifenacin or Dariphenacin to control involuntary contractions of bladder and thereby control urgency.

If urine analysis reveals infection you may need to take broad spectrum antibiotics like Ciprofloxacin for a week.

Restrict your fluid intake during night and ensure to empty your bladder before going to sleep.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
