I have a problem in the health area... Well, I'll just come out and say it. I pee. A lot. Way too much for a normal person. At first my doc told me to start taking Cranberry Supplements for "a healthy urinary tract" and it went away for awhile, and then came back so my doc said "stop taking the pills" and I did and now it's back. Another note, it seems to be worse when I'm not at home, which leads me to believe (and goes along w/ what my bf thinks) that it's all in my head! I get nervous about my little problem, worry I'm gonna wake whoever we're staying w/ up and consequently pee even more than usual... is it possible to have a pyschological peeing problem??? I defiantley don't have a UTI and I'm now on Cranberry pills again b/c I don't know what to do.... any suggestions?

Finally with the same problem as me! Me and my mom have the problem of peeing ALL THE TIME. I know its not an overactive bladder but more of a genetic thing. It drives my family nuts and all my friends. I can go pee and then 5 minutes later I have to go again. It is a little scary but it doesn't bother me that much as long as I can go pee when I need to. I drink a lot of liquid also so that makes it worse. If I drink a 44 ounce of soda I can look forward to going pee about 3 times. You aren't alone! I'm sure everything is fine and don't worry.
I spoke to my doctor, and she said that a normal person drinking the recommended 8-10 glasses of water a day will probably be going every hour and a half or so. If you are going with more frequency than that, you should make an appointment with your doctor to discuss options.
