Going frequently to bathroom does not mean you have a small bladder...
Updated: Oct 21
I hear this a lot from people who say something like- oh I go to bathroom like I am pregnant, or I have a small bladder, I go to bathroom frequently! A lot of these people would plan their trips after making sure of the bathroom locations. Traveling long distance on trains would make them anxious. Broadway shows and opera are missed cause of anxiety of getting up in the middle to go to bathroom.
So do all of these people have small bladders? What is really going on here? Here are some fun facts about bladder. It has a capacity of 500-600 ml, equivalent to about 20 oz. So that 12 oz. coffee should not make you rush. A normal bladder should take about 3-5 hours to fill to its capacity after which it will give you an urge to go unless you chug the whole bottle at once. Bladder is a muscle called detrusor muscle which can contract and relax like any other muscle.
It can get in good habit or bad habit and train the way you train it!
