Having a beautiful toilet can be tempting a lot of times, thereby making you damn the consequences of going to the restroom too frequently even when your body has not given you any go-ahead.
Are you someone that gets to the toilet door before you stop to ask yourself: ‘should I go to the toilet now, so I don’t have to worry about it later?’ Dr Elizabeth Farrell, a gynaecologist at Jean Hailes for Women’s Health has this to say to you…”It’s very important to let your bladder function normally and to empty your bladder when your bladder tells you to,” Farrell says. “If you keep going to the toilet ‘just in case’ too often, the bladder never fills up properly, then shrinks a bit, so then you do tend to have the feeling that you’re going to have to go more frequently.”
You should go to the toilet only when you need to, Farrell says, a rule that also applies to people (such as children being toilet trained and post-natal women) who are often encouraged to go before they get the urge. Farrell says this is important because: encouraging kids to go to the toilet ‘just in case’ teaches them to go when they don’t really need to, rather than when they get the urge.
