Doctor TikTok explains why it is not good to urinate in the shower
In a video posted to social media platforms, physiotherapist Dr. Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas explained why relaxing under flowing water is not a good idea.
"If you urinate in the shower, or turn on the faucet or turn on the shower, and then sit on the toilet while the shower is running, you will have the sound of running water in your brain and have to urinate," she said, referring to Pavlo Husband’s dog experiment.
The doctor went on to add that when the sound of running water is heard, this subconscious connection may cause "leakage problems." She also pointed out that the anatomy of a person "designated as a female at birth" is [not] designed to urinate standing up."
Jeffrey-Thomas continued: "Even in the [a] Captain Morgan posture, your pelvic floor will not relax properly, which means you will not empty your bladder really well."
Despite the more environmentally friendly argument that peeing in the shower can save water, she still issued a warning. Statistics quoted by the Michigan Daily indicate that 1.28 to 7 gallons of water are needed to flush the toilet, while 0.875 gallons of water are needed to urinate in the shower.
"I'm an ocean girl, I spent my entire childhood peeing while swimming, and now I feel the urge to pee every time I touch water. I can't get rid of it," they commented.
No matter what you think, to be fair, when taking care of your body, you really shouldn't put p***...
