Recently, the expert used TikTok to explain that the practice can have consequences for the pelvic floor muscles and the association of the brain with the noise of water.

“There are two things I want to focus on: the overall bladder conditioning perspective and the pelvic floor perspective. If you urinate in the shower or turn on a faucet, or turn on the shower and then sit on the toilet while the water is running, you are creating an association in your brain between the sound of running water and the need to pee,” he said. Jeffrey-Thomas.

According to her, this habit can result in pelvic floor dysfunction, both now and in the future, and potentially lead to problems with leaking urine when hearing water noise. The specialist also reinforced that, due to the female anatomy, peeing standing up can also be harmful. “Even if you put one leg up, your pelvic floor won’t relax properly, which means you won’t empty your bladder very well,” he explained.
