Information on Urination, frequent

DescriptionKnown sometimes as urgency, it is a condition where one feels like they have to urinate too often, even when the amount voided is very small. Can be caused by infection, or atony of the bladder and surrounding muscles.
Treatment PlanKegel exercises are recommended, which involves holding the perineum tight for a count of 10 seconds, then releasing for 10 seconds. Do up to 100 rounds, twice daily, and alternate a series of 5 short contractions and a rest with 1 long and 1 rest. Lowered estrogen levels can contribute, as after menopause. Phytoestrogens can be helpful.
