Women: Discover Why Peeing Standing Up Could Be Better for You


We’ve all heard the saying “You are what you eat,” but it’s just as true that we are what we drink! From sodas and coffee to cocktails, what we drink each day really impacts our health, and believe it or not, our urine is a little tattletale that tells us how our body is handling it all.

Our urine acts like a built-in alert system, giving us a heads-up when something’s off. For example, if your pee is a dark yellow or orange, it’s time to grab a glass of water because you’re probably not drinking enough. And while it’s normal to see some bubbles, super foamy pee might mean you’re overdoing it on protein or could indicate a kidney issue.

Even the color can be a tell-tale sign: green or blue might come from certain foods or meds, but if it keeps up, it’s a good idea to check in with your doctor. Red or pink might just be from that beet salad you had, but if not, it’s best to get it checked out for other health issues.

The smell of your pee can also offer clues about your health. A sweet scent might point to diabetes, and a musty one could indicate a metabolic disorder. And if you’re running to the bathroom more often than usual, it could be a sign of something like diabetes or a urinary tract infection.

Common Urinary Concerns for Women

Dr. Yim Lik, a urogynaecologist, explains that women’s bladders shrink with age, from about 500 or 600 milliliters in our 30s to about 300 milliliters by age 80. This can lead to more frequent bathroom trips and conditions like urinary incontinence, which can affect both young and older women alike.

Thankfully, there are plenty of treatments available, from medications to surgery, and even behavioral therapy for those experiencing stress-related symptoms. Awareness has increased, and there are now many products tailored to various urinary health needs, helping to ease the embarrassment that can come with these issues.

Yes, Women Can Pee Standing Up Too!

Believe it or not, women can indeed pee standing up, and there are gadgets like Go-Girl and Shewee to help! But if you’re feeling adventurous, you can try it without any help. Just slightly bend your knees, arch your back, and use your fingers to guide the stream. It’s a handy trick for camping trips or dodging less-than-ideal public restrooms.

Keeping Your Pee Healthy

Healthy pee is a great sign of overall well-being. To keep your pee happy, drink lots of water, go easy on the coffee and alcohol, and don’t hold it in when you need to go. Regular checks on the color and smell of your pee can help you catch potential health issues early.

And a little bathroom etiquette: remember to wipe from front to back to avoid spreading bacteria, and try not to over-wipe to keep things comfortable down there.

So, have you ever tried peeing standing up? What was your experience like, and do you prefer using a device or going freehand? Ever had any urinary health hiccups and found a good solution? Drop us a comment below—we’d love to hear your stories!
