Hi,

A urinary tract infection is a common cause of frequent urination and this is the first thing to think of.

An overactive bladder is another common cause but usually seen on elderly, although it may be seen in young as well.

Overactive bladder is usually a collection of symptoms that can lead to frequent urination.

These include urinary urgency or the sudden urge to urinate, caused by muscle contraction, urge incontinence, or loss of bladder control.

Excessive caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol may also irritate the bladder walls and can worsen frequent urination symptoms.

Treatment for frequent urination depends on the cause. Your doctor will first treat the primary disease responsible for frequent urination, such as diabetes.

If an infection is at fault, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics for getting rid of the infection.

Medications that control the muscle spasms in the bladder can help reduce urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control.

Your doctor also may suggest doing pelvic exercises, such as Kegels or bladder retraining exercises, to help delay urination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon
