Constant Feeling of Having to Pee

Updated on May 31, 2010

Constant Feeling of Having to Pee


Do you feel a continual pressure on your bladder? Are you always running to the bathroom to pee and when you try, nothing comes out. The constant feeling of having to pee is present in more people than you think and present in women mostly. The constant feeling of having to pee is, in short, called overactive bladder. For some the term can sound like a contradiction of meaning because some people “feel’ that they have to go but when they actually go, nothing comes out thus any term including the word “active” doesn’t do much to describe what they are dealing with seeing that there is not ‘action” taking place on the toilet. The thing about this feeling of having to pee is that it truly can come from almost anything. Of course pregnant women feel the need to pee for when the baby bears down on the bladder from inside the womb. But individuals who have been injured in certain areas of their body can also experience this sensation. Now, digging a little deeper have the feeling of a full bladder all the time is probably not overactive bladder but may be coming from something like ovarian cysts which are causing pressure on the bladder. Bowel spasticity is something similar as it causes the full feeling in the bladder as well. There have been questions and concerns about whether interstitial cystitis is to blame for the feeling of always having to pee and I suppose that it might be the issue however the symptoms of this condition are the urgency to pee without incontinence, having to go about eight times during the day or at least four times at night. I must say right here that a constant feeling of having to pee warrants a call to your doctor. This article is in no way a substitute for an actual diagnosis.

Another reason, other than pregnancy, why women experience this more is due to the change in estrogen that women experience throughout their lives. A drop in estrogen can affect the bladder, the urethra as well as other parts of the vagina in a few different ways, again talk this over with your doctor, all of the possible symptoms, treatments and ways to make yourself more comfortable while dealing with something that tends to be more annoying than truly harmful. As you set your appointments for the constant feeling of having to pee be prepared to take several tests including urinary tract infection tests.
