Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I understand your concern.
Increased frequency and urgency of urination can be seen in urinary tract infection.
By examination and investigations like urine microscopy, culture and sensitivity, the possibility of urinary tract infection can be diagnosed and treatment can be planned accordingly.
Take care.
