The Dangers of Not Going to the Bathroom

Not Going to the Bathroom

Not going to the bathroom on a regular basis can be harmful to your bladder and other organs in the urinary system. A typical adult will go to the bathroom 4 to 7 times a day. But it depends on your personal body and individual factors including age, size of bladder, medical conditions, and bladder sensitivity. By skipping the trip to the bathroom, you are increasing your chance of health risks. That includes kidney stones, kidney failure, urinary tract infections, urinary retention, and the bladder bursting. After hydrating yourself, make sure to allow time to use the bathroom. Do that in order to avoid placing unnecessary strain on your bladder.
