You need to go to the bathroom, but you wait until the last minute. You hold up your pee because you want to finish your message, to pick up the toys, to heat up the food. The excuses are endless.
How dangerous can not going to the bathroom be? How can that have a negative influence over our organism?
It is not very dangerous, unless you do it often. A grown-up person can hold up even ½ liter of liquid, before he/she will feel the need to let it go.
However, if hold up your urine all the time it can result in a condition called urinary retention. It is a condition when you will not be able to entirely empty your bladder. The bladder muscles will become weak and that will cause bacteria growth. This can lead to other inflammations and urinary tract infections.
In some cases it can lead to severe damages and even bladder bursting.
