how many times a day should someone urinate?

As needed.: The daily number of voids can vary widely, depending on fluid intake and fluid losses, bladder capacity, sensitivity to bladder fullness, and external cues. 4-7 times daily is a typical. As a urologist, we simply recommend not holding urine for long periods of time. If you void more or less frequently than this it can be normal, but if you are concerned i'd bring it up with your physician.
