Pollakiuria

 

unduly frequent urination, occurring more than four or five times during the day and more than once at night. It is observed with anxiety, excessive consumption of fluids, such as beer, and also with pregnancy, when it is termed physiological pollakiuria. It may be a symptom of diseases of the bladder, uterus, or prostate gland. Pollakiuria often occurs in combination with polyuria.
