Imagine this: You had a really long day at work. You come home and finally find the comfort of your sweet bed. You have settled in for a night of peaceful sleep. You are drifting off into dreamland. You feel something heavy pressing down on your stomach, a pressure, it keeps increasing rapidly. Until there's no other choice but to get up and pee.

Or something far worse happens. You are asleep, there's a warm trickle. Something from when you were 5 has come back to haunt you, again. Before long, you find yourself in a puddle of your own piss.

Causes of Nocturia (Frequent Urination at Night): Why Do I Pee So Much at Night?

A few reasons for frequent urination at night or night-time incontinence might include:

  • You might be drinking too much of water or other liquids before going to bed. Indians typically drink a glass of warm haldi-doodh before bed, avoid doing this for a good night's sleep.

  • You might be drinking alcohol, caffeine, or bladder-irritating fluids a few hours before going to sleep.

  • You might be consuming citrus or acidic fruits or juices. Avoid these before bedtime as far as possible.

  • You are having foods that irritate your bladder at night. Avoid eating spicy foods or things your bladder has a bad history with.

  • Start training your bladder to hold your urine during the day.

  • You haven't trained your bladder to hold in pee. Set a time-table during the day and stick to it.

  • With age your bladder muscles might have gone weak, which causes you to have to wake up at night to pee or leak urine in your sleep. Try performing Kegels exercises every day. These exercises strengthen the muscles that support your pelvic floor and bladder, in turn helping you hold in urine for longer amounts of time.

What Causes Nocturia: Additional Factors and Underlying Issues

  • Some medications such as sleeping pills or antipsychotic pills can irritate your bladder causing you to pee more at night.

  • You might have an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer, which is affecting the way your bladder holds urine.

  • Some diseases of the brain or the spinal cord such as a seizure disorder, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson's disease.

Possible Remedies to Night-time Incontinence

A few things you can do are:

  • Perform Kegel exercises daily

  • Bladder retraining to hold in urine for longer amounts of time

  • Losing weight can help decrease pressure in your bladder which might be one of the causes of excessive urination at night for you.

  • Double voiding before bed, meaning emptying your bladder twice before bed. Empty your bladder and go about your night-time routine as usual. Do it again right before you're jumping into bed.
