Going to the bathroom during the night

Hi, I now have to get up twice in the night to use the bathroom, (i'm 30) - I do drink a lot of water throughout the day, might this be the problem? Thank you (Melissa)

Re: Going to the bathroom during the night

Hi Melissa

It's good to hear you're hydrating well throughout the day. It is entirely normal to wake up and need the toilet during the night and 1-2 times is normal. You could try decreasing your fluid intake an hour before bed if it's causing a particular issue, but otherwise I don't see it a being a problem.

Equally if you have started drinking more water than usual you will find you urinate more frequently as you bladder gets used to the increased fluid intake.

If you find you are urinating more frequently during the night then seek medical advice.
