Frequent Urination (Women) Treatment
There are many treatment options for urinary frequency. Not all patients need treatment. If the frequency is not bothersome, no treatment is necessary. In some cases simple dietary modification can improve frequent urination. Treatment of bladder infections with antibiotics may alleviate the frequency. If a patient has medical conditions such as diabetes, the urinary frequency can improve as the disease process is better controlled.
There are many medications now available to slow down an overactive bladder. Estrogen replacement can help the frequency associated with vaginal atrophy. Some patients with urinary frequency may respond to pelvic muscle exercises. Surgery can be performed for conditions that can frequent urination such as bladder prolapse. Some patients may benefit from a neurostimulator implant that helps control bladder and pelvic function.
