-If you’re a healthy adult, your bladder can hold up to 2 cups, or 16 ounces, of urine.
-Your bladder is smart and careful enough to turn on the nerves that send the first signals to your brain when it’s just half full. The brain then sends a signal back, telling your bladder to hold it until there’s a bathroom in sight.
-Emptying your bladder is a pretty important biological process. Your kidneys work as filters that take excess water and waste out of your blood.
-If you hold it in for a long time just once, it’s not like you’re gonna instantly trigger a UTI or anything. However, if you keep doing that on a daily basis, the risk does increase since you’re basically breeding bacteria inside.
-When overfilled, the bladder can literally burst when it’s already damaged by some serious condition, like a pelvic injury. Heavy drinking can also lead to this disaster since alcohol can make your body ignore the important signals from the brain.
-Try to distract it with some engaging activity. Crossword puzzles and games will do. You can also try to relax and get your thoughts off the bathroom by listening to music.
