What happens when you stop urinating?


Urine is a normal process of the body. Unnecessary elements for the body are excreted through the medium like sweat, which should be eliminated within one to two minutes of feeling. As soon as the bladder is full, the nervous system sends its signals to the brain and the urge to urinate. If the urination stops even for a short time, the infection starts. What are the problems with urinary incontinence? Let's find out:


 1. Bacterial (bacterial) risk
People stop urinating for a while or for a long time. How long you urinate depends on your urine output. The longer you stop urinating, the more bacteria (bacteria) develops in your bladder and can cause health risks.


2. Fear of being stoned
 Stopping urination for one to two hours can cause urinary problems in women or working youth. At first, there is a pain in the urinary bladder. As long as the urine is stopped, urine is accumulating from the kidneys. Every minute, two milliliters of urine reach the bag, which should be emptied every one to two hours. If the bag is delayed for three to four minutes, the urine will return to the kidneys. This can lead to the onset of stones, as urine contains harmful substances such as urea and amino acids.

3. Risk of urinary tract infection
Never stop urinating. You should go to the toilet immediately after urinating, otherwise, there is an increased risk of urinary tract infection (UTI). This infection spreads when urination stops. Urinary tract infections are more common in women. It is a bacterial infection that can affect any part of the urethra.  

4. Interstitial cystitis 
This is a painful bladder syndrome, which can cause the bladder to swell and hurt. People with interstitial cystitis often urinate frequently. But urine comes less. Although no specific cause has been identified so far, doctors say it may have been caused by a bacterial infection. Some of these patients go to urinate up to 60 times. There is no way to completely eliminate it. But treatment can reduce the symptoms. 

5. Kidney failure 
Every type of urinary tract infection can have a bad effect on the kidneys. Patients with kidney failure cannot get rid of the disorders in the body, due to which the amount of urea and creatine in the blood increases. Symptoms may include loss of appetite, vomiting, weakness, fatigue, decreased urination, and swelling of the body. 

6. The color of urine is dark 
Prolonged retention of urine makes the color of urine darker. Infection is also the reason for this thickening. Some foods can also darken the color of urine. Vitamin B makes urine red. 

7. Weak bladder muscles 
When the urine is not completely excreted for a long time, the bladder gets stretched and this can lead to the weakening of the bladder muscles. Urinary tract muscles can also be weakened due to spinal cord and cerebral palsy.
