One of the questions I get asked by people when they start to think about looking after their pelvic floor is “how long can you go without urinating?” and “is it bad to hold on before going to the loo?” When I did a Google search on the topic someone had even asked “how long can you hold your pee before you die?” Is it harmful to hold onto pee and poos for extended periods of time before going to the toilet? The short answer is yes, it can be. You may be able to do it every now and again if your pelvic floor is in good health, but as a general rule it is advisable to go to the toilet as soon as you feel you need to.
