What is Pollakiuria?

Pollakiuria is frequent daytime urination (up to 40 times a day) in children. It's most common in children 3 to 5 years old, but teenagers can develop it too. The exact cause is unknown but could be due to stress and other psychogenic triggers like moving, being bullied, or parents divorcing.

Typical Symptoms of Pollakiuria

  • Needing to pass urine again, despite just passing less than 2 hours ago

  • Decrease in urine volume

  • Bladder pain

  • Decreased urine volume with painful urination

  • Need to strain or bear down to pass urine, in the past month

  • Frequent urination

  • Feeling that my uterus has dropped down, or something is coming out of the vagina

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge e.g. in color, smell, or quantity

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Pollakiuria

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Have you felt urge to pass urine again, within 2 hours after using the bathroom?

  • Are you urinating less?

  • Do you have lower abdominal bladder pain?

  • Are you experiencing painful urination and decreased urine output?

  • Have you had difficulty urinating recently?

Treatmentof Pollakiuria

Pollakiuria subsides within a few weeks and in some cases, 7–12 months. Reassuring the child that they are healthy and can wait longer to urinate without having an accident can help. A counselor can help manage psychogenic triggers in the child. A doctor may advise tests to rule out other possible causes.
