If you have any info on this or have any suggestions where to find information, let me know.

I have this bad habit of holding in my pee...Done it my whole life. Sometimes I hold it in so much that I have to physically crouch over and push it back through the tract. (I know!! Shame on me. I'm an adult...You'd think I'd learn by now)

Sorry to sound graphic.

Anyhow, anyone know where to find info on this?

Thanks.

This article says there is no danger unless you have an infection.

Quote:
But gynaecologist Dr Horace Fletcher explains that with the exception of the discomfort that this practice may cause, there is no real danger involved.

"Holding your urine is not really dangerous - not unless you already have an infection in the bladder," Dr Fletcher said. "Six per cent of women will have a bladder infection and don't know it, so holding the urine will allow the bacteria to flourish [in that case]. As a matter of fact, if you pass your urine too often, say every 25 minutes, the bladder will become weak."
There's an article telling how to hold it in case anyone didn't know

How to hold it

LOL, an article telling how to hold it in. That's great!

Who knew, right?

Or I guess in this case, who DOESN'T know. Well, and I guess for me anyway, I might as well have written that article since I am the queen of holding it in.

I'm glad to know though that it sounds like according to this, it's not a terrible problem.

Thanks for sharing!

my medical book,computer,youtube and doctor say about hold our urine always good for health because use toilet always bad for health because it cause our bladder to burst,have repeatedly urinary infections and chronic kidney failure can lead to end-stage renal failure required kidney hemodialysis machine,peritoneal dialysis or kidney transplantation each day and night.

I'm wondering if you are using a translation website. Because your posts aren't really making sense. Unless twice-daily kidney transplants are standard medical practice.

Ashley, sorry for your loss.

 

However, I strongly suggest you edit your post and remove your late aunt's name.  Website forums and chat rooms are not good places to post people's real names.  It was very easy to trace YOUR name through your aunt's name on a search engine.

 

By the way, how old are you?

 

Oh, by the way, using the toilet will NOT cause your bladder to burst!  Any doctor (or, website or other source of "information") that tells you that, is, quite simply, WRONG.
