Hi there! Thanks for reaching out to us.
It’s great that you feel comfortable asking questions about your body. We understand that you’re curious about the sensations you’re experiencing when you hold in your pee.
It’s important to remember that we’re not medically trained, but we can offer some general advice. Holding in your pee can sometimes feel good because your bladder is full and the pressure might stimulate certain nerves. However, it’s generally best to go to the bathroom when you feel the need. Holding it in for too long can lead to potential health issues.
One possible side effect of not going to the toilet when you need to is a urinary tract infection (UTI). UTIs can cause pain, a burning feeling when you pee, and the need to pee more often. In severe cases, they can even lead to kidney infections, which are more serious. Additionally, constantly holding in your urine can weaken your bladder muscles over time.
Your health and well-being are really important, so if you have any concerns or if this sensation continues, it might be a good idea to talk to a healthcare professional. They can give you more personalised advice and help you understand what’s going on with your body.
