Urine frequency

Patient

Q: Hie doc,
I am a lady aged 29, no child yet and not on any contraceptive, i have been having problems of passing urine constantly and frequently. Constantly in such a way that when i am passing urine it doesn't stop coming out as long as i don't stop it, if i stop it within 2 to 3 mins my bladder will be full. Whenever this happens it takes about a day before it comes back to normal. please help me, have done a urine analysis before but nothing was found.

Doctor
