Frequent urination often indicates an underlying medical condition. With proper diagnosis and treatment, it’s possible to return to normal urinary habits.
Urinary tract infections: Symptoms of a bacterial infection of the bladder or the urethra – the tube that allows urine to flow out of the body from the bladder – can include burning with urination, foul-smelling urine, fever and pelvic pain.
Side effect of medication: Diuretics and other medications can increase urinary frequency.
Age-related changes:Weakening of the muscles of the bladder, urethra and pelvic floor many lower the amount of the urine the bladder can store as well as the ability to hold or properly eliminate urine.
