I'm male/ 49. I sit with friends, have 2-3 beers. No one needs to use the bathroom. I go 4 times. Now i'm realizing it's a lot. Is this a signal?

In brief: Prostate problem ?
It could just be the alcohol and you're more sensitive to the effects.
However at 49 you might want to consider the possibility of a prostate problem. Do you always urinate frequently? Do you wake up at night multiple times to pee? Is your urine stream weak or do you feel like you have to go again shortly after urinating? Talk to your doctor to see if you need more evaluation.

You could have early signs of bph, or benign enlargement of the prostate.
You should see your doctor or urologist for further evaluation.
