Tips to Reduce Bathroom Trips

RSS

Seven is the average trips a person should take to the bathroom a day. There is such a thing as going to the bathroom too much or too little. “Holding in” your bladder can stretch out your bladder making it harder to empty it out completely.

Here are some tips to reduce your bathroom trips

  1. Watch your liquid intake- Always drink when thirsty, but limit your intake to about 70 ounces a day. Drinking 10 – 12 glasses a day maybe too much.
  2. Log your bathroom trips – For two to three days, keep track of how many times you want to go the bathroom. This should be one of the first steps in bladder training and should give you a baseline as you work on reducing your trips.
  3. Increase your time between trips – Your goal is to go the bathroom every 3 hours. Every week, gradually increase your time until you get to your goal level. Be patient, it may take up to three months to reach your goal.
  4. Get support— While you are training, getting support from a professional can really help. Your physician can refer you to continence nurse practitioner or a physical therapist that can help.
