Increased Urine Frequency

Frequent urination is characterized by the demand to urinate more often than usual. It can sometimes be habitual or can be due to an underlying condition like diabetes mellitus, pregnancy, diabetes insipidus, anxiety, and problems concerning the genitourinary tract, including the kidneys, ureter, prostate, and urinary bladder. Urinary tract infections, using diuretic medications, sexually transmitted disease, urethral stricture, stroke, radiation therapy, urinary incontinence, etc., are the other causes. Treatment depends on treating the underlying cause along with bladder training and Kegel exercises.
