On average, people empty their bladders anywhere from four to eight times per day. Most are able to control their bladder if the urge suddenly appears.

The frequent urge to pee can symptoms of many different conditions. In order to diagnose the cause, your doctor will usually perform a physical exam and ask whether you are on any medications, have any symptoms of infection, or have any change in your eating or drinking habits. Other symptoms may accompany urinary frequency including fever, back pain, vomiting, chills, increased thirst, fatigue, changes in urine, or a discharge from the penis or vagina.
