A member asked:

How long would it take for your bladder to pop from holding urine. also, how would you know if it popped?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

May not rupture: Bladders are stretchable to a point. 3L-4L would be maximal and even before that the pressure would typically overcome the sphincter pressure and cause a leak via the urethra. Bladder rupture could occur however and would generally be dependent on age, how rapidly the bladder filled. How long this would take is quite variable and would depend on how much one drank. Don’t try to find out! Danger!
