Can holding in your pee really kill you?

We’ve all had that desperate urge to pee but not been in the most convenient place to go. But turns out holding it in is actually quite bad for your health. Now, we aren’t suggesting you just relieve yourself the instant you feel the need to go – occasionally holding it shouldn’t do any damage. It’s when you’re consistently avoiding going to the bathroom when your body tells you to that you could cause yourself problems. You might not feel like it, but your bladder holds up to half a litre of urine. There are tiny receptors on the bladder wall that can detect how much is in there and send a message to your brain when it’s full. Thankfully, your brain also sends a signal back telling your bladder to hold on – otherwise things could get really messy. But if you decide to ignore those signals from your body and hold on for too long it could have some serious consequences. Worst-case scenario, urine could back up into your kidneys and could cause them to fail, which could be fatal. The good news is you are much more likely to lose control of your muscles and wet yourself way before that happens. Click here to see some of the more likely reasons to never hold in your pee…
