In brief: Yes
The bladder is a large smooth muscular 'bag' that holds urine.
It contracts during urination and expands as it fills up. Just like any other muscle, it can be trained. Frequent urination will keep the bladder smaller and over time will cause the 'signal' for urination to occur with a smaller amount of urine.
