Peeing is a simple and everyday operation, but believe it or not, it can endanger health if not done properly.

Those who are at higher risk for such problems are women, mainly because of their physiological structure.

But not only.

The course of women's life is associated with many changes in the area related to hormones and reproduction, such as pregnancy, childbirth and menopause.

These, in addition to aging, can also lead to pelvic floor disorders, such as prolapse, which can affect lower urinary tract function.

Here are some mistakes women make when they need to pee:

Wipe incorrectly

One of the perhaps most important things is to avoid wiping from back to front, this is due to the fact that there is a rich bacterial flora around the anus and perianal area, vagina, lips and genitals, and wiping can transfer bacteria from one area to another.

Such a move can cause urinary tract infections, which include burning in the urine, pain and having to walk multiple times.

In addition it can lead to multiple use of antibiotics, as such infections in many cases become recurrent.

Not a trivial thing.

Multiple wiping

Excessive wiping can also cause discomfort and irritation of sensitive skin, creating the potential for infection.

It is therefore advisable to wipe gently and use a little paper.

Resist too much

Who among us does not know the situation in the office when you need to pee but refrains until it reaches an emergency.

It is not recommended to reach this stage, and as soon as you feel the need to urinate you should go to the bathroom.

Under normal circumstances the bladder can comfortably hold an amount of 1-2 cups.

But if you routinely hold back for long periods of time, you can stretch and expand the bladder so that it also contains more than that.

But your bladder is not the only thing that can stretch and expand.

The external muscles of the sphincters may also stretch.

These are very important muscles that are attached to the outside of the bladder and are actually the gatekeepers of the urine.

Excessive stretching of these muscles can cause loss of control.

This is a rare condition, and it often takes decades of systematic restraint to get there, however once the damage is done it can be very unpleasant and even dangerous.

Do not empty the bladder

Speaking of restraint, less control over the sphincters can lead to urinary incontinence when the bladder is full, and to the fact that you will not be able to empty completely when you go to evacuate.

This will not only increase the frequency of your visits to the toilet, but may also cause urine retention - a medical condition in which the urine stays inside the bladder for a long time and does not empty.

Since your bladder is, by and large, a hot, wet bag of physical debris, it is a perfect habitat for harmful bacteria that can cause all sorts of damage.

And in rarer cases, urine retention can be so severe that the urine rises back to the kidneys, which can lead to kidney failure and even death.
