Overview

Urinary frequency is how many times you go to the bathroom per day. On average, most people urinate 6-7 times during a 24-hour period. Urinating more or less times per day than the average is not usually cause for concern, though, as urination frequency can be impacted by the amount and types of liquids consumed. When urination frequency begins impacting your daily life and quality of life, such as when you start planning trips based on the availability of a bathroom, may be time to see one of Jefferson’s Surgical Clinic’s urologists.

Symptoms

Depending on what’s causing frequent urination, you may experience other urinary problems such as:

  • Pain or discomfort during urination
  • A strong urge to urinate
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Unusual urine color
  • Family history of frequent urination

Risk Factors

Excessive urination can be attributed to a wide range of causes including:

  • Untreated diabetes
  • A urinary tract infection
  • Medication
  • An overactive bladder
  • A learned, habit-forming behavior

Some of these causes could become life-threatening if left untreated, making it all the more important to discuss excessive urination with a professional.
