Frequent urge to urinate in men, the main reasons and what to do

A huge number of men are faced with increased urination. With this problem, the number of trips to the toilet can be 10-20 times a day, with an average rate of 4-6 times. This ailment brings serious inconvenience to a man’s life.

In addition, a frequent urge to urinate is often a symptom of serious problems with the human urinary system. Therefore, it is worth considering this ailment carefully.

Causes of frequent urination

The reasons for frequent trips to the toilet in men are conventionally divided into two groups: physiological and pathological.

Physiological factors include:

  • Fluid intake, significantly exceeding the average rate of water consumption per day, which is 1.5-2 liters.
  • Hypothermia of the body. In this case, the increase occurs due to the active work of the kidneys and a decrease in the removal of fluid from the body through the skin.
  • Being in a stressful situation. With excitement, the work of the kidneys and adrenal glands accelerates, as a result of which the number of trips to the toilet increases.

    Frequent urination for physiological reasons does not require treatment. As soon as the third-party factor is gone, the work of the excretory system is normalized.

    The pathological reasons for frequent trips to the toilet include diseases of the urinary system. The main diseases are:

  • BPH. With this disease, due to the growth of a benign tumor, the urinary tract narrows, as a result of which a man urinates for a longer time, and is also unable to completely empty his bladder in one trip to the toilet.
  • Prostatitis. In this case, the increased frequency of trips to the toilet occurs due to the inflammatory process in the prostate, which irritates many nerve receptors.
  • Sexual infections that cause inflammation of the organs and canals of the urinary system. The inflammatory process leads to pain and cuts during urination, which in turn increases the number of trips to the toilet.
  • Kidney stones can block the ducts and irritate and inflame the excretory tracts and organs of the urinary system, which causes an increase in the number of urinations per day.
  • Kidney inflammation. With this disease, the normal process of formation and excretion of urine in the kidneys is disrupted, which leads to a frequent desire to urinate.
  • Cystitis. A rare condition in men that affects and inflames the bladder, causing the body to pass urine more frequently and in smaller volumes.
  • Diabetes insipidus. With this disease, the normal functioning of the kidneys is disrupted, as a result of which the volume of urine released increases dramatically.
  • Overactive bladder. Frequent urination, in this case, is due to a violation of the contraction of the bladder, due to frequent commands of the central nervous system.

    Diseases of the urinary organs never go away on their own, so they must be treated. Therefore, an increased desire to urinate, in this case, will bring discomfort to the man, until the disease is cured.

    Concomitant symptoms

    Frequent urination occurs without pain at first. This is due to the fact that this ailment is one of the initial symptoms of many diseases of the urinary system. However, over time, the constant desire to urinate may add:

    • Painful sensation when urinating, manifested by burning and cutting.
    • Reducing the intensity of the jet and its intermittency.
    • Staining urine in a non-standard color, due to the ingress of pus, blood and discharge into it.
    • The appearance of a pungent and unpleasant odor in urine.
    • Stable rise in human body temperature.

    The addition of the above symptoms indicates the progress of the disease. In this case, you should immediately consult a doctor for an examination, since most diseases with such symptoms in an advanced form can cause irreparable harm to the human body.


    When contacting a doctor with a problem of frequent urination, the patient is initially interviewed about his daily routine, the amount of fluid he drinks per day, the daily menu and stressful situations. If there are no physiological reasons for this condition, the following examinations are prescribed:

  • A blood test, which determines the presence of an inflammatory process in the body.
  • A urine test that will indicate the presence of salts, blood, pus, and other impurities.
  • A smear to determine the presence of infectious diseases.
  • Ultrasound examination (ultrasound) of the internal organs of the urinary system, which is carried out according to the results of blood and urine tests. With this examination, the doctor can localize pathological changes in the body, and also determine where the inflammatory process is present.
  • Computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging is necessary if abnormalities were found on the ultrasound. This study allows for more accurate and high resolution examination of pathologies of internal organs.

    It should be noted that the composition of diagnostic measures for each patient is assigned individually.

    Treatment is prescribed depending on the reason that causes the increased need to visit the toilet.

    If physiological factors are the cause, doctors advise patients to follow a diet, reduce the amount of fluid they drink, and also consult a psychotherapist to reduce stressful situations.

    For pathological reasons, the doctor relies on the results of the examination, for which medication or surgical treatment is prescribed. Most diseases of the urinary system can be cured with medications. These include genital infections, cystitis, inflammation of the kidneys and bladder, early stages of urolithiasis, and a number of others that can be completely cured by taking medication by the patient.

    However, advanced forms of prostatitis, prostate adenoma and urolithiasis require mandatory surgical intervention.


    As you know, it is better not to treat the disease, but to prevent it. Therefore, in order for a man not to face an increased desire to urinate, it is necessary:

  • Eat a balanced diet.
  • If possible, exclude the intake of sweet soda and alcoholic beverages.
  • Do not lead a sedentary lifestyle.
  • Have a normal sex life.
  • Undergo urinary system examinations annually.
  • Try to avoid hypothermia of the body.
  • Reduce stressful situations.
  • Detonic – a unique medicine that helps fight hypertension at all stages of its development.
