What Do I Need to Know about Frequent Urination?
Frequent urination is a condition where you feel a frequent urge to pee. This can be caused by a number of conditions or diseases that affect your urinary tract, such as urinary tract infection, a small bladder, a neurogenic bladder or a bladder tumor. Frequency may also be associated with incontinence, a condition characterized by inability to hold urine.
Needless to say, the condition triggers anxiety and leads to embarrassment. Feeling the need to pee all the time impacts your desire to go out in public or get together with friends. This troublesome condition may signal a serious disorder that needs immediate attention. Other issues must be ruled out to get an accurate diagnosis and the appropriate treatment.
Uterine fibroids are a common cause of frequent urination among women. Without appropriate treatment, fibroids can lead to complications, such as miscarriage and infertility.

What Are the Causes of Frequent Urination?
The urinary tract is the area in your body that involves a coordinated function of different organs, including your:
- Ureters, the tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder
- Urethra, the duct that lets urine flow out of your body
A variety of factors may be causing your frequent urge to urinate. It may be a medical condition or certain medications. The common issues that cause frequency which may also be associated with incontinence, include:
- Uterine fibroids
- Kidney infection
- Urinary tract infection
- Certain cancers and their treatments
Sometimes, you won’t know you have a condition until the symptoms worsen. You may have more than one underlying condition that both contributes to your frequent urge to urinate, such as when diabetes coexist with fibroids. When you seek out ways for how to stop frequent urination due to one condition, you often discover another underlying condition.

What Should I Know About Fibroids and Frequent or Difficult Urination?
Fibroids are benign tumors that grow in your uterus. These growths press on your bladder, which reduces the amount of urine it can hold. This compression is what causes your frequent urge to urinate. In addition, fibroids in the uterus sometimes create a blockage that makes it difficult to empty your bladder.
Frequent or difficult urination are just two issues that you may experience with uterine fibroids. Other symptoms of a fibroid condition include:
