Frequent visits to the bathroom are not necessarily a symptom of incontinence. It’s normal, for example, for you to go to the bathroom 4-8 times a day. You should know that the number of your visits directly depends on the quantity of fluids you take during the day. If, for example, you drink 2 litres of water each day, while you also drink diuretic beverages, such as coffee or tea, you will certainly feel a greater urge to urinate than someone who drinks water and other beverages in smaller quantities. Even if you feel the urge during the night, this may be due to the increased intake of fluids late in the evening. As an average, we could say that the volume of urine in a 24-hour period is usually 1-2 litres. A normal person should be able to hold in urine for 3-4 hours, without feeling particular discomfort.
