Extremely annoying

We’ve all experienced it: you’re sleeping beautifully in your warm bed, but you wake up because you have to go to the bathroom. It’s extremely annoying, but you can do something about it!

Then you can try using some of the following tips.

Overactive bladder

You normally produce 1 to 2 liters of urine a day, only 25% of which at night. You should therefore be able to spend the night without having to urinate. Do you find yourself getting up several times a night to go to the bathroom? Then you probably have an overactive bladder, also called nocturia. This means that you have increased urine production during the night. This disorder is found more often in women than in men, and age also plays a role.
