is it normal to pee this much?

Compared to other people, I have to pee a lot. I don't drink a lot so I don't see how so much liquid can come out of my body.
I have to go to the toilet about once every half hour during the day, and I get up during the night a few times to go too.
I've been like this for years, and I can't think of any sudden or recent change.
Is this normal for a 16 year old girl? Or do I just have a strange body?

If you dont drink enough this can sometimes make you pass urine MORE often.. Look at what you drink.. Your urine should be as pale as possible, if dark this may be the problem. It is worth seeing your GP so he can rule out any other problems such as infection. He may take a urine sample to check this is clear.

You may find it helpful to speak to a continence adviser at the Bladder & Bowel Foundation. Call 0845 345 0165, leave your name and number and an adviser will call you back.

I agree with the other but if no infection and it persists and bothers you then a urology referral for an ultrasound and other tests might prove useful.
