Frequent urination: Frequent urination at night can be due to drinking a lot of fluids before bed time (especially caffeinated beverages or alcohol). Other conditions could include untreated diabetes, congestive heart failure, urinary tract infection, overactive bladder or bladder obstruction.

A 21-year-old member asked:

The short answer is 'a short time'; usually under 10-15 seconds depending upon how much urine you need to eliminate, and depending upon one's gender. Fluid intake, kidney(renal) disease, prostate issues, etc. Can lengthen this time and even cause an obstruction so if there is any alteration of what is "normal" for you then ask your health care provider.

See your doctor: If this is a frequent occurrence, there can be a number of causes. If there is blood in the urine and you have pain when urinating, this could be a kidney stone. For men, an enlarged prostate can be the culprit. Usually an infection causes increased urination but difficulty urinating can still be a symptom. In all cases, you should see a doctor for a thorough evaluation.

Anatomy: Physical changes of the urethra, the tube that passes urine from bladder to outside, could cause this. This may or may not be of importance. Your primary care physician should be very helpful in knowing that your kidney function is normal. A urologist otherwise is the right specialist for this.
