This is done by many but bad, I often see people dancing and hitting there legs on the ground to hold it without knowing that doing that often is bad.
As liquid waste builds up in your body, you get the urge to urinate. It’s not harmful to hold it for a few minutes until you get to the bathroom, but if you wait too long, the effects can be unpleasant and even harmful.
If you find yourself doing a dance, it’s time to make a quick stop.
Holding your urine for too long can weaken the bladder muscles over time.
This can lead to problems such as incontinence and not being able to fully empty your bladder.
Holding your urine for extremely long periods of time can also cause urinary tract infections due to bacteria build-up.
In addition, it can increase your risk of kidney disease and in rare cases even risk your bladder bursting a condition that can be deadly.

An enlarged bladder can cause abdominal pain and the inability to control urination.
If you constantly hold your pee for too long, you might start feeling pains in your lower abdomen.
The pain might not go away easily.
