I noticed that the amount of urine is becoming much less, I do not measure it but the total amount during the day is within normal quantity. I have been wearing diapers full time for almost 6 months, prior to that I did take breaks to see if I could be more urine continent by trying to hold it for longer periods of time. The pain from holding it to try to stretch my bladder was excruciating and prone to embarrassing leaks.
    I have urge IC too but when I do try to go I don't produce much urine and still feel like I have a full bladder. I get the pain too sometimes when I do try to pee and sometimes if I try to hold. And sometimes it stings when I try to establish a urine stream. If I don't try to go though I often leak and sometimes lose control. In the middle of the night I often get up to go because I feel I have to go but then I cant. Its very frustrating. I have neurology problems and have been told this is likely affecting my bladder.

    I can't remember who the study was done by, but I remember the results were an average adult male has a bladder capacity of 400 to 600 ml.

    A seperate study thry talked about also showed it takes every mammal from a house cat to an elelhant, 21 seconds to empty a full bladder.

    Who the heck figures out studies like this need to be done, and who funds them anyways....

    Actually what ive found ( professional articles ) is that there isent that mush of a difference between male and female blather capacity ether

    Like some of the responders, I have urge incontinence as well that translates to bladder voids (planned and otherwise) on average of 8 - 20 times a day depending on ambient temperatures, time of day, activity, and intake. So, my tolerance is variable (25 ml to 250 ml) when I can measure. For instance, mornings are worse in accidents and tolerance. This is where my bladder aches the most and is more prone to leaking. Also, temperature shifts and vibrations are, sigh, wet.

    Yeah Missy1, I don't recall reading of gender differences in capacity either. Tolerance is different.

    Capacity and tolerance are two different concepts that we interchange in conversations - I do often. Capacity is factored by age, and to an extent BMI and is basically the physical space available. Tolerance is what one accepts, and is influenced by factors such as capacity, anatomy, diet, social, and stress to name a few (there are others). Anatomy can factor into frequency and volume more for females (at least what literature searches I've read) thus more occurrences of stress related issues for females.

    Yes this is what i have concluded as well

    Yes this would defenetly be the case in my case being born with MBD (Minimal brain dysfunction) and MANY of the common 100 + side diagnosis usely accompanying sed diagnose ) some of them Depression disorder .Anxiety disorder ad to that a rough start in life with LOTS of negative stress

    21 seconds? Wow, thats pretty precise. I guess it means at full stream though. It sometimes takes a bit to get that going. Years ago I was told that it takes 25 to 30 seconds for a bladder to empty while your asleep. In that case I guess gravity is doing all the work.

    There are two things I think I can add to this thread. The physical size of your bladder is one factor. Some people just have larger or smaller bladders than others. The other is the point at which your bladder muscles contract so hard that you can't hold it any longer. Again, most continent adults can hold hundreds of ml of urine before they really need to go. If you visit a urologist, which I suggest anyone who is having bladder issues do, they might run tests to measure both your bladder size and your urine capacity before and after you pee. This is called urodynamics. In my case, I hold about 100-120 ml at which point my bladder muscles automatically contract and empty my urine. If I'm dehydrated I get there much slower and can sometimes anticipate when I need to go. The vast majority of the time, it's an immediate squeeze, pee in diaper, rinse, repeat.
