What is frequent urination?

Frequent urination happens when you urinate more often than you should. It can develop due to a variety of conditions, including vaginitis, pregnancy, and weak pelvic floor muscles. Dr. Bodnar can perform an exam to determine the cause of your frequent urination before recommending the right treatment for you.

What are the symptoms of frequent urination?

Along with urinating more often, frequent urination can lead to one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Chronic vulvar pain
  • Painful intercourse
  • Urinary incontinence (leaks when coughing or exercise)
  • Urge incontinence, which is the loss of bladder control
  • Interstitial cystitis IC, which is pain during urination
  • Vulvodynia, which includes pain in your lower abdomen, side, or groin
  • Lichen sclerosis
  • Low sexual desire
  • Trouble reaching orgasm

Talk to Dr. Bodnar if you experience any of the above symptoms along with frequent urination.

What are the treatments for frequent urination? 

There are many non-surgical treatments for frequent urination, such as:

Acoustic wave therapy

Acoustic wave therapy creates longer-lasting relief from symptoms than any other current treatment. As a non-invasive, non-hormonal alternative to conventional treatments, this gentle radiofrequency solution stimulates the natural regeneration of vaginal tissue. It is a non-surgical, non-hormonal alternative for the treatment of chronic conditions. 


Votiva, a safe, gentle, and effective radiofrequency alternative to laser therapy, helps people experience temporary improvements in blood circulation and muscle pain, and promotes muscle relaxation.  A therapeutic device for the treatment of sexual dysfunction or as an adjunct to Kegel exercises, Votiva can help with:

  • Poor blood flow 
  • Painful sensations caused by labial hypertrophy
  • Low libido and self-esteem
  • Weakened vaginal muscles
  • Loosened vaginal canal 
  • Urinary stress incontinence (involuntary dripping of urine)
  • Vaginal dryness

What are the benefits of frequent urination treatments?

Frequent urination treatments, like acoustic wave therapy and Votiva, can significantly improve your urinary incontinence while decreasing your urinary frequency and urgency. They can also help reduce vaginal dryness, improve vulvar discomfort, enhance libido, and even decrease the refractory time between your orgasms for a more fulfilling sexual experience.
