How many times a day do YOU pee?

As I have previously mentioned many times, I have some really bad urinary issues and have had them for years now. In an effort to try to remedy this, I've made a resolution to pee more often. This got me tracking about how many times a day I pee normally. And I realized that it's not very often... like maybe twice a day. Which got me thinking...how often do OTHER people pee? This led me to getting some laughs out of my roommates and girlfriends when I asked them and I got responses ranging from, "I've never counted" to "Um, like maybe a million." So I thought I'd pose this question to the other female-bodied rockstars out there, because these threads are so much fun.

How many times a day do YOU pee? Do you pee only when you really HAVE to? Or is it more like whenever you think about it?

I'm pretty sure I pee like 8 times a day. Sometimes when I think of it, sometimes when I really have to go.

Before I got pregnant I literally only peed like once or twice a day.

This. Due in 2 weeks, definitely excited about NOT having 7 pounds sitting on my bladder...

I'd say about 7 to 8 times. I consume a lot of water.

Three or four times a day.

Maybe about six? Sometimes I'll work long days, and realize I've gone ten hours and only been to the bathroom once because I've been too busy to remember to drink water; but I always feel awful and dehydrated when it's that infrequent.

Depends-if I'm drinking as much water as I'm supposed to, once every hour or two. If not, maybe three times a day at the most.

In a 24 hours period, about 5-6 times.
when you say 2 times a day, did you include night time? That seems a bit low to me?
Perhaps you should drink more water? Also, if possible, once you first feel the urge to pee, you should pee than and not "hold it" for a long time, until you feel like you are going to burst.

Usually probably about 8 times or so. Especially if I'm at work, I drink a ton of water, so I end up having to go all night long.
jasminelily 12th-Oct-2009 06:28 pm (UTC)
Probably about 4-6. Once when I get up in the morning, usually once or twice during the day (though sometimes not at all), usually once when I get home at night, and then once before bed. Sometimes there's one or two more in there.

I pee about 5-6 times a day. I totally forget to go to the bathroom, but I've been lucky with not having any major probs with it.

I would guess about 7-8 times a day. Unless I drink coffee or tea, in which case that number probably jumps up to 10 or so. I usually only pee when I need to, unless I know that I'm going to be unable to pee for a long time (before a meeting, car trip, before I go to bed, etc.).
owl_eyes_4ever 12th-Oct-2009 06:43 pm (UTC)
2 if I had -very- little to drink (pretty rare though), 4 on average, 8 if I drank a lot.

I'm super-paranoid about kidney stones, so I tend to go the second I get the first urge unless I'm in a situation where I really can't do that. I'd guess it's about six or seven times a day, but that's a guess. I always go first thing in the morning and last thing at night.

A million is definitely closer for me than 2! ;) I've peed three times today already and it's only noon and I haven't been drinking much water. I would guess I probably pee something like 6-12 times a day, 6 being a day I didn't drink much, 12 being a day that I drank a ton of fluids and/or alcohol.

I would definitely be worried at someone peeing only once or twice a day o_O Not peeing often gives bacteria, if they are present (from intercourse, not wiping 100% correctly, etc.) an awesome chance for them to replicate in all that nitrogen-rich urine. Peeing often flushes things out. :)

Yep. Hence the personal goal to start peeing more!
glass_houses 12th-Oct-2009 07:36 pm (UTC)
Usually five or more times a day, depending on how much I drink.
eiluned 12th-Oct-2009 07:41 pm (UTC)
If I'm working from home, I'll pee every couple of hours, so... six or seven times? Something like that.

Now I'm going to start counting, haha.

For me, it depends more on how busy I am -- and therefore how much easy access I have to a bathroom -- than how much I'm drinking. I'm always pretty well hydrated, drinking between 2 and 3 liters of water (plus a cup or several of coffee).

In a typical work day, when I can't go to the bathroom whenever I want, I probably pee between 3 and 5 times per day. When I can get to the bathroom more frequently, it's probably closer to 8 or so times per day.

Really? Is that only when you're awake, or throughout the night too? (I ask because I generally have to get up anywhere from one to three times during the night and can't imagine more!)
ctzntoxie 12th-Oct-2009 08:01 pm (UTC)
I used to pee twice a day, but since the beginning of this year its become really frequent. It was about one an hour, but now I'm trying to stop this constant urinating, so its about once every three hours now.
disturbedme 12th-Oct-2009 08:16 pm (UTC)
I usually have to pee anywhere from 5 - 12 times a day, maybe even more depending on if it's my period and how much water I consumed, etc.
pinkdagger 12th-Oct-2009 08:36 pm (UTC)
omg at least 6 or 7 times a day if I spend a few hours at home. I bring a 2L bottle of water wherever I go (work/school), and am constantly refilling my little mug with water when I'm at home.

If I'm at school, I go when I really have to because bathrooms with open and clean stalls can be hard to come by when you have 5-8 consecutive hours of class with only a long enough break to run from one room on one end of the campus to another. At home, if I feel a tingle like I have to pee, well, the bathroom's just the next room over. Much more convenient.
frolicnaked 12th-Oct-2009 10:38 pm (UTC)
This. I feel like most of the reason I pee so frequently at home is simply because I can. :D
striketheband 12th-Oct-2009 08:38 pm (UTC)
Probably 5/6 times a day, I drink a LOOOOOT of tea! lol.
