Why Do I Sometimes Shiver When I Pee

Why Do I Sometimes Shiver When I Pee?

Peeing is one of the most basic human functions. Without it, life would not exist. However, there are times when we feel very uncomfortable while doing so. There are many reasons behind these feelings. Some of them may be due to various health issues or psychological problems. For example, some people experience urinary tract infections (UTIs) due to improper hygiene. Other times, they may be caused by stress or anxiety.

So what’s wrong with having a little bit of discomfort during our daily activities?

The reason why we sometimes feel uncomfortable while peeing is because of the pressure on nerves that are located in the pelvic area. These nerves control various bodily functions such as bladder function, bowel movement and sexual function. If the nerves are irritated, then we might experience discomfort.

What Causes Urinary Tract Infections?

There are several possible reasons why someone develops UTI. One of them is improper hygiene habits. Another one is sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). STDs include gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia among others. All these infections cause irritation of urethra which results in urine leakage and pain during urination.

For some people, the above-mentioned reasons are not the main causes of their discomfort. Instead, they suffer from overactive bladder (OAB).

This can be the result of nervousness, anxiety or stress. These conditions make us feel like we need to go to the washroom all the time.

Other factors that may lead to frequent urination are pregnancy, diabetes or even the consumption of caffeine, alcohol and certain foods.

Whatever the reason may be, all these conditions can be fixed with the right medication. However, a natural alternative is to change some of your daily habits and lifestyle.

For instance, if you suffer from improper hygiene, you should make sure to wash your genital area properly and often.
