"Timid bladder": Are you afraid of public toilets?

Filed in: Urinary system.

Do you have a "shy bladder"?

Many men and women in India have "shy bladder," also known as paruresis, the fear of using restrooms when others are nearby.

Men still revive without thinking much, but women continue to exercise a lot of restraint in doing so and, sometimes, end up damaging themselves.

When using a western toilet, women tend to stay a little above the seat, which we call floating. If you do that, you should think twice.. This maneuver puts pressure on the pelvic muscles and makes it more difficult to completely empty the bladder. It is best to use tissue paper / newspapers on the seat when you have to use the bathroom. Remember to stand up before flushing the toilet. Fog from the toilet can spray germs. When in a public bathroom, be sure to hang your bags and bags on the door hooks. This keeps them away from the floors, which are usually the dirtiest places in the bathrooms. Always wash your hands with soap and hot water for at least 30 seconds. If nothing is available, cleaning with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer will help. Studies have shown that paper towels are more hygienic than hand dryers.

But the most important thing is that when you have to go, you must go! There's nothing dirtier for urine than your bladder …

Holding urine in the bladder for excessively long periods leads to the genesis of dysfunctional urination and active bladder at later ages.

So be careful, be careful, but empty your bladder when you feel like it!
