Hi Friends, Watch► Is It Safe ? - Holding Your Pee | This Will Happens To You | #ABCHealth
Peeing is pretty important. Your kidneys filter excess water and waste out of your blood and that urine needs to go your bladder. Normally, it'll hold 1-2 cups comfortably. But if you make a habit of holding your pee for long periods of time, you can actually stretch your bladder to easily hold even more.
Once the bladder stretches, your brain can lose its ability to know when you have to go. That critical message your bladder sends to your brain when it's time to go, can go unnoticed.
You could actually pee your pants. Quite embarrassing, but real.!
By holding pee for long time, You may also stretch your external sphincter muscles. Those are important muscles connected to the outside of your bladder that are the gate-keepers of your liquid. But if you overstretch them, you can actually lose control. This is rare, and usually takes decades of holding it too long to reach that point, but once you do, it can lead to some awkward or even dangerous situations.
When your bladder is overworked, it can affect other things: for example, your pelvic floor. Your pelvic floor muscle is what controls whether or not you're going to keep urine in, or let it out.
About half of all women have had a Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) at least once in their lives. These infections occur because bacteria has made its way into the urinary tract, which then causes symptoms like burning, the need to urinate frequently and pelvic pain, among others.
But UTI's aren't actually a direct result of holding in your pee. If you don't empty your bladder enough, your body becomes a breeding ground for bacteria which can then cause a UTI.
Other organs can become damaged
Your bladder connects to your urinary system, which includes your kidneys. The kidneys create urine from the excess water in the blood stream, and by filtering waste. The Kidney and Urology Foundation says that if urine travels back up the tubes that connect your bladder to your kidneys, it can cause infections and kidney damage.
The more holding it in becomes a habit, the more you're going to see the problems it can create. It's important to make sure you get to the toilet, not just because of the sheer embarrassment of a potential accident, but because of the fact that some of the health consequences can be very severe, Allow yourself ample time in your day to free your pee.
