Navigate: FAQ Home Page > Male Health > Need to urinate
Another reason for the urge to urinate is the sensitivity of the bladder, particularly in some people, to these beverages. The bladder is a muscle and it can be hyperactivated, or go into spasm, from coffee and other beverages.
For patients with a problem of having to urinate at night, we suggest they avoid these beverages at least 2-3 hours, and in some people 5-6+ hours, before they go to bed.
