Not if it cures you: Urination diary is important to make sure that the fluid balance between input and output is stable i.e. Intake equals output. If you drink 1.5 liters and urinate only 1 liter on routine basis then you will need to increase the water pill to make it even or else you will get severe swelling and heart failure. You need to keep intake no more than your output to avoid this problem i.e.Restrict fluid.

A 21-year-old member asked:

How long should a normal pee take?

The short answer is 'a short time'; usually under 10-15 seconds depending upon how much urine you need to eliminate, and depending upon one's gender. Fluid intake, kidney(renal) disease, prostate issues, etc. Can lengthen this time and even cause an obstruction so if there is any alteration of what is "normal" for you then ask your health care provider.

See your doctor: If this is a frequent occurrence, there can be a number of causes. If there is blood in the urine and you have pain when urinating, this could be a kidney stone. For men, an enlarged prostate can be the culprit. Usually an infection causes increased urination but difficulty urinating can still be a symptom. In all cases, you should see a doctor for a thorough evaluation.

A 40-year-old member asked:

Why is my urine split when I pee?

Anatomy: Physical changes of the urethra, the tube that passes urine from bladder to outside, could cause this. This may or may not be of importance. Your primary care physician should be very helpful in knowing that your kidney function is normal. A urologist otherwise is the right specialist for this.
