The sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate can sometimes be one of the most uncomforting and humiliating experiences for you. The fear of leaking when away from home or in an urgent meeting can cause you great deal of embarrassment. An overactive bladder can cause an intense, uncontrollable urge to pee. It is important to learn bladder training tips to reduce your trips to the bathroom and avoid embarrassing situations.

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage at the wrong time and place. As a behavioral therapy, bladder training is focused on learning to increase the time between bathroom visits. It involves learning good habits to urinate on a set schedule, quitting bad habits, and getting back in control to reduce urgency, frequency, and urge leakage.

So with bladder retaining, you will learn to hold more urine in your bladder, without experiencing any sense of urgency to urinate.
Urine is produced in the kidneys, from where it travels to the bladder, where it is stored. When the bladder fills with urine, it stretches and a message goes to the brain, which transmits the message to the bladder muscle to tighten. It also sends a message to the sphincter muscle at the bladder opening to relax. As a result, you start to feel the urge to urinate.
When we talk about bladder training, our focus is on learning bladder control so that bladder empting can be delayed by following a urinating schedule.
With bladder retraining, you learn to pass urine on a schedule. With practice, you can gradually increase the time gap between bathroom visits to a normal pattern, which should be primarily 3 – 4 hours. So with training, you can learn to reestablish your control of urination.
