Hi. It so happened that I got 0.1 mlu B-HCG test last month which means I'm not pregnant and my urinalysis test is normal, but I was wondering why I always have to urinate many times a day? That after I pee, as stand up, I urge to pee again. Please help me!

Actually ever since me and my boyfriend had oral sex last January, I started to pee frequently. I doubt I have diabetes since that is also a possible reason for frequent urination. I don't have this condition before not until I met my boyfriend in person and have oral sex.

Hello Genereads,

Welcome again to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us for help.

It is possible that you have an overactive bladder.

An overactive bladder is another common cause of frequent urination. According to the Cleveland Clinic, an estimated 33 million women have an overactive bladder. Overactive bladder is usually a collection of symptoms that can lead to frequent urination.

Symptoms can include:

urinary urgency, or the sudden urge to urinate, caused by muscle contractions

urge incontinence, or loss of bladder control

nocturia, or the need to urinate at least two or more times a night

urinary frequency, having to go at least eight times a day

Causes can include:

conditions affecting muscles, nerves, and tissues
estrogen deficiency caused by menopause
excess body weight that places extra pressure on the bladder

Excessive caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol may also irritate the bladder walls and can worsen frequent urination symptoms.
