Are you a fan of the toilet, who loves to visit the bathroom more than often; someone who cannot be absent without an urge to urinate? This inconvenience of our day-to-day life can be extremely annoying and even turn into a nightmare, while you are travelling for a professional appointment. This uncontrollable desire of peeing (more than eight times a day and twice the night) is an open invitation to various troubles such as embarrassment, disturbed sleep, decreased self-esteem, fear of not being able to hold your urge in public and so on. According to medical science, to an extent, there is nothing serious behind this frequent need of urinating. But, if this extremely frequent urination becomes unbearable, and you feel tingling, burning, or the color or smell appears to be suspicious, it is necessary to consult your doctor.

Reasons Behind uncontrollable Desire of Peeing

Urinary Tract infection or Cystitis

One of the most common bladder problems in men and women is urinary tract infection. When you feel like you have to urinate frequently, but often it is a less urgent; you should get yourself diagnosed because it could be urinary tract infection or bladder infection. Urinary tract infection or bladder infection is often associated with considerable pain in the lower abdomen. A person affected may see blood in urine. In general, urinary tract infection or bladder infection can be healed by drinking plenty of water. But, if the infection persists; antibiotics is often the best solution.

Interstitial Cystitis – Painful Bladder Syndrome

Interstitial Cystitis is a bladder inflammation that resembles recurrent cystitis. Under this infection, most of the problems are the same as in the case of UTI (that is why it is often mistaken for UTI), but interstitial inflammation in Cystitis is not caused by bacteria. Therefore, it is not to be treated with antibiotics. The cause of interstitial Cystitis is still a mystery to science and to the date it is considered an autoimmune disease. Please be advised that Interstitial Cystitis cannot be determined by urologist and neither the general practitioners are capable of determining interstitial Cystitis because they are not familiar with the disease. It requires a thorough medical diagnoses, lab tests, and imaging.

Urination Problems by Diabetes

Excessive urination can also be caused by diabetes. When the sugar content in the blood is too high, the kidneys attempt to drain as much as possible sugars and this often results in a lot of pee. Diabetes can be treated with medication. But, in addition, a healthy diet and plenty of exercise are also important. Should you have any doubts about being a diabetic, you better make an appointment with your doctor.


A lot of urination can also be a symptom of pregnancy. As the uterus grows, there will be more pressure on the bladder and you often go to the toilet. Here is little to do. After delivery, the problem will disappear soon.

Prostate Problems

If you have an enlarged prostate, it can squeeze the urethra. Therefore, peeing will take longer than expected and you will need to urinate more frequently. One who experiencing this medical condition may experience a weak urinary stream or stop and start. There are cases in medical history where it was considered a reason behind the bladder stones, and reduced kidney function. This is a man disease and only men have this typical disease. The risk of prostate problems increases with age; an enlarged prostate is the most common in men over 50. This is a curable medical problem and can be healed with medications, surgery and invasive surgery (minimal).

Overactive Bladder

Now, this is a medical problem commonly found in women, but have seen in men as well. In this sort of medical condition, one may find it very hard to control your need of urinating. If you have a disorder of overactive bladder, pull your extra bladder often together, giving you an incentive you need to go to the bathroom. Overactive bladder makes no pain or irritation, but you have to urinate frequently, even at night and the worst part is – the amount you urinate is often low.

Frequent Urination by Hormones

Antidiuretic hormone or Vasopressin, a hormone that regulates the amount of fluid that you hold in your body. The shortage of RDA simply vanish too much moisture from your body and this shortage is caused by drinking caffeine or alcohol. There may also be several other structural medical causes, however.

You Do not Drink Enough Water

How paradoxical it may sound, it’s true. If you are not drinking enough water, you will experience more concentrated urine and the more concentrated urine means irritable bladder. This will make you feel that you often have to go to the toilet. Therefore, you should drink a lot of water as it will reduce your urine irritation and you do fewer trips to the toilet.

You Move Not Enough

And we’re not talking about an intense workout, but pelvic exercises. When you as a woman gets older, the muscles in your pelvis weaker. Fortunately, you can do pelvic exercises anywhere, without anyone having to do. All you need to do is tighten the muscles that you normally need when you pee. And you can do it anywhere – at your desk, on the bus, in bed, you name it.

You May Have a Small Bladder

It seems a poor excuse, but there is some truth to it – you really can have a smaller bladder. Now you cannot change the size of your bladder, but you can train your bladder to hold more liquid. Try this simple technique – for two days go to the washroom every half hour to pee (whether you need it or not) and after two days, go after every five minutes. This can help you with a slow stretch in your bladder.

If the urge to urinate is not accompanied by specific symptoms, it’s definitely a physiological manifestation. Although visiting toilet for peeing frequently is not a trouble, however, if you experience other symptoms such as fever, pain, discomfort, and urgency to urinate, then there may be an underlying disease. In that case, you should consult a doctor first to ensure you.

This check-up will let you understand whether your problem can be treated with medication or you need a surgery.
