Peeing through the night

At night, how many times do you get up to pee? How many times is too many, meaning you should see a doctor?

I never do.

I think more than once is a problem.

Hell, I think if you do it EVERY NIGHT, even if it's only once a night, it's a problem.

Sometimes once.

Usually I only have to pee about 5 minutes after I am comfy cozy in bed.

I used to do it at least once a night, but once I had my sleep apnea treated, I NEVER do. The doctor told me the reason I was having to get up to pee was that I woke up (subconsciously) numerous times due to the apnea and once I was awake I realized that I needed to use the bathroom. Now that I no longer wake up during the night, I don't pee until I get up in the morning.

If you don't drink anything for an hour before sleep you won't have to pee until morning.

I pee a lot in general, but there are a lot of prostate problems in my dad's family. I'm sure I need to get mine checked.

More like three hours before bed.

Every night at 2am. Then I jack off and fall deeply back asleep.

Wow, you lucky guys - just wait until you get older and it's 4-5 times a night.

You might need to be tested for diabetes. Especially if you are over weight. Some people retain water during the day and are just programed to eliminate nocturnally

Also sleep apnea can cause you to have to pee multiple times a night.

R12 Now THERE'S an original thought.

This happens to fatties with sleep apnea a lot.

The most I can go is about 3 hours, although during the day I can sometimes make 4 hours without peeing. Sometimes, though, I have to go every hour during the day and every 90 minutes at night. It's like a weekly cycle or something.

How the hell should I know? It's not like I'm awake when it happens. But from the way the mattress sags after about two weeks and the people downstairs complain about something leaking through their ceiling, I'd guess maybe six or seven times.

Do I get paid for this? It's an interview, right?

Datalounge could make some money by allowing people to sponsor threads. This thread was brought to you by the fine folks who manufacture rubber sheets.

The thread did not ask how many times you pee during the night. The question was how many times you get up to do it.

by Anonymousreply 1812/04/2012

usually once a night, last night I didn't though

I need to cut off drinking anything two hours before bedtime. Then I don't need to get up during the night.

by Anonymousreply 2012/04/2012

Usually twice a night, damn BPM.

I was told by the doctor that if you get up to pee more than twice you may have a problem--I usually do once or twice so I guess I'm in the safe range.
