Why do I seem to pee more at night?
it seems that at night I pee every 1-2 hours, and at school I maybe pee once or so troughout the day.

Is it because people usually drink more when they're at home?

I think it all depends. However, my understanding (albeit based on one chat with a urologist) is that as long as it's not painful and you aren't aware of underlying issues, urinating often is not a problem.

By peeing more at night, do you mean you're having to wake up/get up out of bed every 1-2 hours to urinate? If so, then I think it probably would be a good idea to talk to your doctor. However, if the frequency is greater when you're up in the evening, then you're probably set. On a personal note, it's more of the opposite for me: because I drink a lot of coffee/liquid at breakfast, I urinate more during the morning and afternoon but much less at night. You can always write down what you're eating/drinking and how you're feeling, if you think it may be based on the amount of water you're consuming (a good thing!) and, as always, see a doctor if this is something you're really concerned about.

No, it's only when I'm awake, I don't ever have to actually get up in the night to go pee.
Thank you! [Smile]
