Doctor gives two reasons why you should never pee in the shower

In the viral TikTok video, physician Doctor Alicia Jeffrey-Thomas, from Boston Urology, addressed the sensitive topic in a video titled “why you shouldn’t pee in the shower”.

The physician explained that the habit could affect both the bladder fitness and pelvic floor.

The video, which has already gained tens of thousands of likes, doctor Jeffrey-Thomas, explained: “If you pee in the shower, or turn on the faucet or turn on the shower and then sit on the toilet and pee while the shower is running, you’re creating an association in the brain between the sound of running water and having to pee.

“When you [combine] that with pelvic floor dysfunction, then that will potentially lead to some bladder leak issues when you hear running water outside of the shower.”
