Can PCOS and stress cause frequent urination?

Hi I am a 23 yrs old female and for the last few months I have been suffering from frequent urination. I have become depressed due to this...been to several doctors but to no avail. I have done tests and I have no infection either and my sugar readings are ok (I have been tested 3 times) . I have been recently diagnosed with Polycystic ovary syndrome. Can PCOS or stress cause frequent urination. I also occasionally suffer from dry mouth.

GOOD EVENING MADAM.....I HAVE GONE THROUGH YOUR QUERY....FIRST OF ALL LET ME CLARIFY THAT STRESS CAN RESULT IN FREQUENT URINATION,DUE TO INCREASED STRESS HORMONE LEVELS IN BLOOD NAMELY STEROLS AND NOREPINEHRINE.PCOS PER SE DOES NOT RESULT IN FREQUENT URINATION.SINCE YOU ARE IN SEXUALLY ACTIVE AGE GROUP,THERE CAN BE FEW INFECTIONS LIKE FUNGAL INFECTIONS EX VAGINAL CANDIDIASIS WHICH CAN RESULT IN FREQUENT URINATION MEDICALLY REFERRED TO AS "POLYURIA"..SUCH INFECTIONS CANNOT BE TRACED IN NORMAL ROUTINE BLOOD AND URINE TESTS.YOUR AGE IS ALSO HIGHLY UNLIKELY TO SUGGEST DIABETES.I ADVICE YOU TO TAKE PRESUMPTIVE TREATMENT-ANTIFUNGALS.TAB.FLUCONAZOLE 150mg one tablet.RESTRICT WATER INTAKE TO 2.5 TO 3 LTRS PER DAY.INDULGE YOURSELF IN REGULAR PHYSICAL EXERCISES AND DESTRESSING ACTIVITIES.I ASSURE YOU WILL BE QUICKLY RELIEVED.ULTRASOUND SCAN ABDOMEN FORMS LAST RESORT INVESTIGATION IF SYMPTOMS ARE NOT CONTROLLED IN I WEEK.....THANK YOU

I get a dizzy sence if i havent been to urinate, I often feel like I have to urinate even after I just have, Im ware of my bladder and often urinate every 30mins even though I only drink 3litres of fluid in the day which consists of 4 cups of durectic and 4 of cordial. Evenings anywhere from 2 to 6 pints. Often feel like I have dribbled slightly in my underware. Urine infection ruled out, but as I drink heavy my rubibleum is moderately high, it has been suggested it is stress incontinence?? Any advice will be greatly recieved.

I have recently been made redundant, quite a stressfull time. I started getting up more frequently in the night to urinate. I had a PSA test and it came back as 4.7. I went on antibiotics for 10 days and at the end of the course the PSA had risen to 5.1 - My urolgist has suggested a bioposy - stress levels through the roof - I am 46 and otherwise healthy

I am 34 year old male. I have the urge to urinate frequently 8-10 times a day and I notice the quantity I urinate is more than normal. Sometimes I have to urinate twice within one hour, and sometimes I feel there are drops stuck (after I urinate) that are released with body movement. I do not have any burning sensation or any pain while urinating. Also the color of urine is clear. I do not have diabetes. At workplace I have to go often to the toilet, at home (on weekends there is usually less urge to urinate). i also done Phimosis surgery, Recently i take homeopathy medicine for piles.my ultrasound sonography report is normal Could it be due to the work tensions or take medicine for piles? Please advise what to use.
