Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Colorless urine often means a person is well-hydrated and is generally not a sign of ill-health.

Frequent urination can be cause by many things including drinking a lot of liquids (which might also explain the colorless urine).

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.

Anon, you will need to see a doctor for more help.
