Urinary Urge

Urinary urge is a sharp tingling feeling in the pelvic area that tells us that we need to empty our bladders. It is very important to listen to this signal that our bodies give us because if we do not urinate and empty out our bladders, the bacteria which collects in the urine will have time to multiply and cause urinary infections and possible inflammation that can cause a number of other problems in the urinary tract and the rest of the body.

Monitor Urinary Urge

It is important to monitor the frequency or the times you need to pee. Environmental changes like hot or cold weather, increased activity level, or dietary changes can affect your hydration levels, and cause a change in how often you feel the need to relieve yourself. The same factors can also alter your urine color. If you experience any chronic change in urinary urge frequency, it may be due to a number of problems within the urinary tract.

One side effect of increased urination urgency is dehydration. Make sure to replenish your body's fluid levels. Many people don't take dehydration very seriously, but it can be deadly and cause a number of problems in the body as the organs do not have enough liquids to function properly.

Urine Output

Possible problems may be
Polyuria - condition of excessive production of urine (> 2.5 L/day)
Oliguria - <400 mL of urine produced per day
Anuria - nearly no urinary urge or urine output.

Sometimes it is just a matter of understanding the needs of your bladder and emptying it our before you feel a strong urge. That will prevent much of the possible inflammation or the burning sensation.

Micturition and Urinary Urge

The medical term used to describe the urge to urinate is Micturition. Micturition happens when the bladder becomes full enough and begins to send signals to the brain that it should be emptied. If we do not remove the waste from the bladders by urinating, the sensation of the need to urinate becomes stronger. This makes us eventually urinate which helps keep us healthy since often the removed materials can contain harmful bacteria or toxins.

Anatomy and Urination

Men tend to have larger bladders than women. That means men can store more urine in their systems before needing to remove the waste. The same reasoning is true with children. They are smaller and their bladders are smaller. But the size of the bladder is not the only factor in determining urination frequency and knowing when you will feel the urge to relive yourself. The other very obvious factor is how much liquids you consume vs. how much dehydrating substances like caffeine or alcohol you take in at the same time. Additionally, your activity levels, outside environment (hot or cold) also play a role in ho frequently you will feel the urge to relive yourself.
