I need to urinate during the day but not that much often as at night. I drink not to much fluids. No swelling of my ankles. I am female (not pregnant). No burning with urination and no pain.

Frequent urination is sometimes the first sign of diabetes, so it may be worthwhile to get tested for that.Frequent urination at night but not during the day is often related to fluid retention. Wile lying down at night, the extra fluid is passed through the kidneys as increased urination. Usually you would notice the fluid accumulation, especially in your ankles.Urethritis is a possible cause of frequent urination, which is inflammation of the urethra, the tube leading out of the bladder. It may not show up on routine urine testing. Usually there would be burning with urination. STD's are a common cause of urethritis, so if and STD is possible, I would get tested.So it's somewhat puzzling why you urinate more at night. I assume that it's puzzling for your doctor as well. I would at least get checked for diabetes and possibly STD's. Best wishes.
