It’s OK if you’re one of the many women suffering from frequent urination. An issue a woman of any age can face, some might feel the stress only at night, while others face the challenge throughout the day as well.
What is considered a normal amount of times to urinate in a day? While this will vary from person to person, you’ll likely need to visit the restroom six to seven times in a 24-hour day, but as few times as four and as many as 10 can also be normal. Some medications necessitate visits to the bathroom more often, while a low intake of fluids will lessen it.
While it can be normal to visit the bathroom if you have a large intake of fluids, caffeine or alcohol, if you are experiencing an increase in urination without obvious cause, and especially if the problem is interrupting your sleep, daily routine, or you are worried, it should be a reason to call your physician.
You should also call your doctor if you experience any of the following:
- Painful urination
- Pain in your side, lower stomach, or groin area
- Difficulty urinating
- The strong urge to urinate
- Loss of bladder control
- Red or dark brown urine
- Blood in your urine
