The most trivial reason for frequent urination is an increase in the amount of fluid you drink, and the use of caffeinated or alcoholic beverages (especially beer). Watery foods (watermelons, melons, cucumbers, cranberries) and herbal preparations containing linden, thyme, lingonberry leaf also have a diuretic effect.

Urine production also increases with hypothermia and stressful situations. All these reasons do not require medical intervention, as you can eliminate them from your diet on your own.

Physical examination

If you are sure that the above does not apply to you, and the unpleasant symptoms continue, you will have to visit urologist, gynecologist, and endocrinologist, since the cause of the problem may be associated with different organs and systems.


You should start with this specialist if you suspect you have kidney disease. Frequent urges and discomfort during urination can lead to this. Often, after using the toilet, you may feel the feeling of an empty bladder.

Symptoms increase with hypothermia, stress, and physical exertion. Similar symptoms occur with weakness of the bladder wall, often without physical discomfort. Any kidney disease with a prognosis for the formation of chronic renal failure (CRF) can cause frequent but painless urination in women.

An overactive bladder, kidney stones, urethritis, muscle weakness of the bladder walls, pyelonephritis, cystitis, and renal failure lead to persistent urge to urinate.


The consultation is important for those who have recently given birth to a child, especially a large one, as well as in situations where there is a suspicion of sexually transmitted diseases such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, or trichomoniasis. Certain viruses, such as herpes and human papillomavirus (HPV) HPV 6 DNA, qualitative, can also affect the frequency of urination.

With menopause, which is due to hormonal changes in a woman's body, the tone of the bladder and pelvic floor muscles decreases.

Finally, fibroids, as well as prolapse of the uterus, can be the cause of frequent urge.


It is necessary to go to this specialist in order to exclude diabetes mellitus, which can be suspected if the constant urge to urinate is combined with intense thirst and an increase in fluids consumed.

In addition, excess progesterone contributes to the accumulation of fluid in the tissues and the weakening of bladder muscles.
