Increased urine frequency is all about people having the urge to empty out their bladder numerous times a day and rushing to the toilet several times a night. Such people take 6-8 trips to the restroom whereas some even needs more. There are certain approaches that may help in emptying the bladder entirely such as double voiding.
Prior to practicing any such technique, it is better to consult a doctor first as sometimes urine frequency may occur as a symptom of urinary tract infection.
Double voiding is a bladder emptying technique and is carried out by following steps:
At times rocking side to side may also help some people in voiding the bladder fully. Variations to the above described technique can be beneficial for some people as well such as walking for ten seconds before peeing again.
Double voiding minimizes the bacterial incidence in urine. As a suggested by a study, other techniques that may also help, include:
When the bladder is not completely emptied, it not only increases the urine frequency but also elevates the risk of developing a urinary tract infection (UTI). It can be very painful and may even cause bladder scarring and kidney damage if unattended. Therefore, double voiding and other techniques may be of great help when it comes to preventing UTIs.
Overstretching of bladder is just another complication that may occur as a result. Once the bladder becomes overstretched it seizes to snap back leading to further complications associated with voiding.
Apart from the bladder emptying techniques, following healthy approaches may also help:
To minimize the spasm, the doctor may inject botox, a botulinum toxin, to the bladder.
