I was in an important meeting at work and suddenly felt an overwhelming urge to go to the bathroom — despite using it an hour ago. I rushed out of the room and frantically searched for the closest bathroom. The full and uncomfortable feeling in my bladder couldn’t wait for the meeting to end! Let me tell you — if you have regularly experienced the sudden need to urinate, you’re not alone. Frequent urination in women has unique symptoms, so understanding the causes — and solutions — can help. Causes of frequent urination in women include pregnancy, childbirth, urinary tract infections, an overactive bladder, and bladder stones, among other issues. Understanding the underlying cause of your frequent urination will help you find the right solution, which may include changing your diet, doing pelvic floor exercises, or losing weight.
