I can hold about 12L of urine.. I don't always wait that long but that's my bladder capacity, do I just have a big bladder or something to worry about?

12 or 1.2 L?: 12 L of urine is unheard of and 1.2 L is possible. In my 46-yr study and practice in urology, the largest urine hold inside the bladder was 3.5+ L. Generally, a bladder holds some 0.25 - 0.5 L. So, either 12 or 1.2 L is too much. Is it normal? A detailed evaluation to assess your voiding pattern, check postvoid residual urine, urinalysis, etc. is needed. To assure such, see urologist timely. ...Read more

Urinary frequency and urgency may not be due to a bladder problem at all, but could be due to scar tissue, blockage, prostatic issues or infections or stones. Therefore, a full evaluation by a urologist is the answer to the questions as several diagnoses are possible. ...Read more

Frequency: These symptoms are related to irritability of the bladder, very similar to ibs. Many times drinking too many sodas, caffeinated drinks and spicy foods can cause this. Sometimes it can be related to hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle, irritation of the urethra during intercourse. Sometimes you need to take an antispasmodic medication to break the cycle or avoid the above foods. ...Read more
