Homoeo call Frequent urination is not harmful but can be contained.

A need to pass urine more regularly and most of the time with a sensation of urgency associated with it is called `frequent urination'. If the amount of urine passed in a day is more than two and half litres too it can be considered as the same condition. It is not necessarily a disease or an ailment but is a symptom and your doctor would look into various causes to ascertain whether it is of concern and needs to be addressed or certain lifestyle changes need to be advised or in a good number of individuals definitely no need to worry about.

Frequent urination can occur due to various reasons like urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate gland and further conditions of prostate in men, diabetes, certain cardiac ailments, inflammation involving the muscular wall or the inner layer of the urinary bladder, overactive bladder, urinary incontinence etc. Certain essential drugs that patients are under are known to cause such a symptom too.

In urinary tract infections the capacity of the bladder reduces due to inflammation albeit temporarily and one experiences the need to void urine more often. In prostate gland affections, the swollen gland seems to compress the bladder resulting in some amount of urine remaining in the bladder after voiding and thereby the need arises after a little while again. This condition with retention of urine in the bladder seems to cause an infection of the inner wall of the bladder called cystitis and thereby the further frequency. The infection is also accentuated by certain conditions called stricture urethra wherein the outlet from the bladder i.e urethra does not respond to the call and remains contracted thereby retaining a little amount of urine even after attempting to pass the same. All such conditions also seem to worsen a condition like overactive bladder where the muscular contractions of the urinary bladder compel one to visit the toilet often.

The amount of urine produced in the body could be more than normal in conditions like diabetes, excessive fluid intake and certain drugs too. It could be as simple a reason as increased intake of water too in some people.

If it occurs in women, a gynaecologist would look for hormonal imbalance, infection of the cervix, vagina etc. that could play along with the urinary tract infections and thereby the frequency. Last but not the least is the fact that it could be psychological.

If it happens in children it could be due to the fact that they remain without attending to the toilet needs for prolonged hours until the urge is accompanied with urgency or they do not spend time to void completely as they are too anxious that they miss something back at play. Such children should be encouraged to take their time while emptying the bladder and compelled to a voiding schedule of every 2-4 hours to decrease the incidence of urinary tract infections.

Homoeopathic medicine has good remedies to address the cause and thereby treat the symptom. If it is due to increased size of the prostate gland then Baryta carb, Chimaphila are found to help. If it causes compression and urine is not voided completely, Colocynth, Staphysagria decrease the amount of retained urine. If the urethra is in stricture and leading to retention of urine, Clematis, Ac. nit are always useful. The muscular wall of the bladder is treated well with remedies like Causticum, Medorrhinum etc. Seldom does homoeopathy fail if there is urinary tract infection with Apis mel and Cantharis. If the gynaec infections are associated, Caladium addresses both while kids find relief with remedies like Equisetum, Merc sol and others.
