Body When You Hold Pee

You should immediately go to the bathroom, but sometimes you retain from urinating in answer to your last email or to quickly end one of your tasks. You should know that this bad habit can cause you serious health problems.
The bladder is a muscular organ of the urinary tract, it receives urine produced by the kidneys, and then evacuate during urination. The bladder has a filling capacity of 300 to 600 ml capacity and greater in women than in men.
Urination involves four main steps:
- Physiologic bladder capacity reaches 300 ml.
- Feeling the need to pee (nerve impulses are transmitted through the stretch receptors in the bladder wall to higher brain centers).
- The detrusor (muscle layer of the bladder) contracts and the sphincter relaxes smooth (muscle that controls urination).
- Urination (relaxation of the external sphincter through the somatic motor nerves).
It is True that the adult urinary tract can retain up to about 600 ml of urine, but remember that could cause many adverse effects:
- Chills
- cramps
- Pain in the stomach
- Severe pain during urination
- Fever due to bacteria in urine that were not evacuated
If you often retain yourself to pee , you will increase the risk of several serious diseases such as urinary retention and cystitis, among others.
Urinary Retention
Urinary retention is the difficulty or even the inability to pee and empty the bladder. This is a serious disease that is manifested by severe pain and constant discomfort. Threatening, urinary retention affects men more than women and should be treated absolutely.
Cystitis is a type of urinary infection that is manifested by inflammation of the bladder due to the spread of bacteria in this organ. It is more common in women: their urethra is short which enhances urinary infections.
Cystitis should be promptly treated to avoid the risk of more complications. Indeed, the infection can affect the kidneys and may cause pyelonephritis.
