It might sound gross, but this habit isn’t as unhygienic as you’d think. However, if you do decide to pee in the shower, it’s best to do it in your own shower and not a public one—which, let’s face it, is pretty gross. “Generally speaking, urine is sterile since it has no ‘living’ organisms,” Dr. Brahmbhatt tells Health. “But this isn’t always the case, since someone could have a urinary tract infection. Also, the urine could pick up some bugs from the end of the urethra as it exits.”
Short answer to all of them: It’s fine to pee in the shower. That’s according to Jamin Brahmbhatt, MD, PUR Clinic urologist and Assistant Professor at UCF College of Medicine in Florida,
Contents Of Urine
“Depending on how much fluids you take in, about 90% of your urine is water,” says Dr. Brahmbhatt. “The rest are salts and compounds that are filtered out of your body.” This extra stuff in your urine can vary, but it’s based on what you have drank or eaten, as well as medications you have taken and substances you have used, he adds.
The fact that urine is basically just water with some added salts means it’s highly unlikely to do any damage to your shower tray or drain, if that’s a concern. “If you think about it, urine is probably ‘cleaner’ than what you wash off your skin during a shower in the morning or after a gym workout,” says Dr. Brahmbhatt. “It’s probably no different than the water coming from the faucet when it comes to its effect on your physical surroundings.”
What Happens When You Pee On Your Self In Shower
If you’re still grossed out by the thought of accidentally peeing on your feet, well, at least you’re in the right place for a rapid wash. if you have a cut or other wound on your foot? “It’s probably not a big deal,” says Dr. Brahmbhatt. “There are people that pitch using urine as an antiseptic; i.e. when you have an open wound, you can pee on it to help avoid infection. But the science behind this theory isn’t particularly strong.”
In summary don’t beat yourself the next time it comes flowing while in the shower it does you no harm. Thanks for reading please subscribe to get mouth watering articles to your email.
