4 Shocking Things That Can Happen When You Always Hold In Your Pee

Never miss the chance to go on a bathroom break ever again!

Most people think that holding in your pee is not a big deal. We tend to do this when watching a gripping movie or when we’re too engrossed with work. However, avoiding bathroom breaks is one of the things that could be dangerous to your health.

Holding it in all day could have varying results on your body. The bladder tends to stretch when beyond its normal size when you don’t relieve yourself regularly. One study even reveals that nurses who held it in all day have bladders that can carry almost twice than normal bladders. Although the nurses haven’t reported any illnesses, they could still be at risk of major problems.

Here are 4 things that could happen if you continue to hold in your pee:

1. Your external sphincter muscles might weaken

These muscles are the ones that clench up when you’re trying to prevent a leakage. It would take several years of holding it in for this to happen but it could lead to the second item in our list.

2. You need to pee more often

When the external sphincter muscles weaken, you could easily lose control of them and risk leaking all over yourself. You could also end up not being able to empty your bladder properly and would need to go to the bathroom more often.

3. You might develop urinary retention

Urinary retention is the inability to urinate and fully empty the bladder. Although it doesn’t seem so bad save for a couple of peeing accidents once in a while, it could also lead to bacteria thriving in your bladder.

4. You could end up with kidney failure

Urinary retention could lead to more serious things. When the bladder is unable to eliminate urine from the body, it could lead to kidney failure. Now does anyone need a bathroom break?
