Symptom #2: Frequent Urination

Frequent urination is the need to urinate more than usual. The commonest causes of frequent urination are urinary tract infections (for women and children), an enlarged prostate (in older men), and the use of diuretics. Frequent urination is commonly associated with urinary urgency. Other associated symptoms include polyuria and urinary incontinence.

Other causes of increased urinary frequency include interstitial cystitis, urethral inflammation, vaginal inflammation, alcohol use, anxiety, bladder cancer, diabetes, and pregnancy. It can also be a side effect of medications.
