Intimate health: about urination – Patika Magazin Online


We pass urine several times a day, without paying attention. But what do we know about this vital process that occurs as a result of kidney function?

We urinate less when it’s hot

One liter of urine approx. It consists of 950 g of water, while the remaining amount contains sodium, chloride, potassium, calcium ions, urea (i.e. urea, which gives the color of urine) and other metabolic products (urobilin, uric acid or the mentioned creatinine). When it’s hot, we sweat more and the body expels water differently – which naturally reduces the amount of urine. So the more we sweat, the less urine we excrete if we don’t drink enough fluids.

If possible, you should always urinate while sitting

This position is the usual and of course more comfortable. Its main advantage is that it allows you to empty the bladder well, and it is not necessary to force urination (exercise pressure), which causes many excretory organ disorders, infections, urine leakage, etc. can be a facilitator. In addition, contrary to popular belief, you cannot get an infection from toilet seats – not even in the case of well-maintained public toilets.

If we suddenly burst out laughing, everyone can leak urine

Normally, the “latch” remains closed even when we suddenly laugh out loud. If this does not happen, you should consult a doctor. Even if we only notice leakage occasionally, it is better to clarify the cause with the doctor, because over time this symptom tends to become more frequent and stronger.
