At-home remedies for women with urinary urgency and urinary frequency

It’s normal to urinate every two to five hours a day, and once a night. Do you urinate more than this? Then you may be experiencing urinary urgency.

When it comes to urinary frequency, this is when women experience a really strong sensation of urination but maybe just went to the bathroom or have very little to dispense.  

Urinary urgency and urinary frequency may be attributed to overactive pelvic floor muscles.

A type of remedy used by healthcare professionals, and commonly recommended by pelvic health physical therapists, is vaginal dilation therapy. Pelvic floor muscles that are tense or overactive may benefit from using vaginal dilators to help perform “yoga” for these muscles.

Vaginal dilators, also called vaginal trainers or vaginal expanders, are products found “off-the-shelf” and can be used independently or at-home by women.

Dr. Stacy Sutton of Sutton Health Advocacy covers vaginal dilation therapy with urinary urgency and frequency in Part 4 of The Ins and Outs of Dilators series. Watch this video about Dr. Stacy’s use of vaginal dilators for urinary urgency and frequency in her practice.
