If a person frequently needs to pee but little comes out when they try to go, it can be due to a urinary tract infection (UTI), pregnancy, an overactive bladder, or an enlarged prostate.
Less often, some forms of cancer can cause this.

Is it normal to pee every 30 minutes?
It’s considered normal to have to urinate about six to eight times in a 24-hour period. If you’re going more often than that, it could simply mean that you may be drinking too much fluid or consuming too much caffeine, which is a diuretic and flushes liquids out of the body.
What makes you feel like you have to pee all the time?
Urinary tract infection (UTI): This refers to an infection of the urethra, bladder, ureter, or kidneys. When it affects the lower urinary tract, a UTI can cause a person to feel like they need to pee all the time. The presence of small amounts of blood in the urine may also be an indication of this condition.
