Frequent Urination

The prostate will often enlarge as men grow older, eventually causing a variety of urinary problems, which can be irritating and worrisome for men. One of the most frequent symptoms of an enlarged prostate is frequent urination. If you seem to be heading to the restroom to relieve yourself often and are waking up several times a night with the urge to urinate, you may be suffering from an enlarged prostate.

Causes of Frequent Urination

Understanding why you are experiencing frequent urination can help you better understand your condition. Your prostate surrounds your urethra, which passes your urine from your bladder to the outside of your body. When your prostate grows larger, it can squeeze the urethra and press on your bladder. As it presses against your bladder, it will cause you to need to urinate more often. It can also cause you to experience the sudden, severe urges to urinate, even if you just visited the restroom. This can be an irritating symptom, especially during the night.

What You Can Do

There are several things you can do to help alleviate your symptom of frequent urination. Reducing the amount of fluids you drink can help, especially within a couple of hours before bed. Avoiding alcohol and caffeine, staying warm, keeping stress levels low and avoiding decongestants and antihistamines can all help eliminate your frequent urges, especially in the middle of the night. Taking Zeneprost can also help to reduce or eliminate the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, particularly frequent urination.
