Brief Answer: Causes to constant/frequent urination explained... Detailed Answer: Hi, Besides over-active bladder, there are many other causes to frequent and constant urination including: - infection - genital infection/problems I suggest to run further tests including urine analysis and culture and sensitivity together with abdominal ultrasound. If nothing noticed, then, over active bladder is confirmed. I also advise to make some changes in your diet including: - avoid coffee or caffeine/energetic drinks - avoid drinking too much water/liquids - avoid too sugary foods Next, as long as you also have irritable bowel syndrome, stress is another factor aggravating them. So, stress relieving techniques will help set you calm leading to better control of your problems. Otherwise, a further evaluation with urologist and neurologist is needed to start the most appropriate treatment regarding any neurological pattern or sphincter problems. Hope it was of help!
