    Default How often are people supposed to go to the bathroom?


    *Ads Disappear After 100 Posts*
    I was reading this thread: http://forums.govteen.com/showthread...13#post4264613. The person on the thread was complaining of having to go to the bathroom all the time and he found out he had a Urinary tract infection. My question is: How often are people supposed to go to the bathroom?

    Everybody is different. How often you pee has to do with the foods you've eaten and the amount of water you have consumed. I think you're going to the bathroom too much when you notice how much you're going to the bathroom. Running to pee every 5-minutes obviously isn't healthy and when you say to yourself "Why am I peeing so much?" then you know that something is wrong.

    What about every couple of hours?

    I would say compare that "every couple of hours" to what you've normally experienced all your life. If it's been normal for you for as long as you can remember, don't worry about it. On the other hand, if this is something you've noticed as a relatively new problem over the very recent past, and you can't pinpoint a change in your dietary and exercise habits that might have brought it on, then I would recommend getting a checkup by a doctor. Especially when combined with excessive thirst, frequent urination can be an early warning sign of diabetes.

    No, I think it has been that way for me forever. It's just when I hear about certain illnesses like that, I pay attention too much to things like that and then I think I have something even if I don't have all the symptoms and it drives me crazy. I guess I am a hypochondriac.

    Worrying about something personal when others have experienced trouble with something related does not make you a hypochondriac. It makes you an aware human. People over-assign hypochondria just like bipolar, depression, and ADD.
