Hello,

Thank you for your question.

Either you have a bladder infection or a urinary tract infection causing you will to have frequent urination or if you're a man may have enlargement of the prostate. Urinary frequency can also be associated with diabetes. For this reason you should get your blood checked and also a urine analysis and digital rectal exam are in by a urologist. this amount of urinating would not be secondary to the fluid intake that you describe.

Since I have you online, I was wondering if you could help me with this too. Sometimes I have a problem getting an erection and other times I have a problem staying erect. Could this be also related to me having frequent urination?

Expert:  Internist replied 5 years ago.
There would be no relation to the amount of frequency you describe. that is a different issue.

Misunderstanding I was talking about having problems getting an erection and staying erect. What causes those kinds of problems?
