Of course, this varies a bit depending on how much you're eating and drinking. Don't worry if you go a little more or little less often.
#9 The average healthy pee stream should last for about seven seconds.
This might varry a bit from person to person, but if you're peeing for only two seconds even though you felt like you really needed to go, that may indicate you have other problems like an infection.
#8 Urinary bladder of an adult person can hold 300 to 500 milliliters of urine.
This much size is enough to fill anywhere between 7 and 11 shot glasses. And height of the person doesn't actually play a role in bladder size, average bladder volume is pretty consistent across adults.
#7 Sweet-smelling pee is often a sign of diabetes.
That's because diabetes might cause glucose to leak into your urine. And peeing all the time could be a sign of diabetes in children.
#6 Foul-smelling pee is a sign that your kidneys are spilling glucose or protein into the urine.
If your pee smells awful even though you're staying hydrated and haven't been consuming things that usually result in an odor, it could be a sign that your kidneys are accidentally spilling glucose or protein into your urine.

During the early years of penicillin usage, it was difficult to extract enough of the drug from mold cultures to complete even one patient's treatment, let alone enough to treat all the patients who needed the drug.
Doctors discovered that up to 99 percent of injected penicillin was quickly excreted in urine in a form that was still active. So they began to recycle penicillin from urine in order to treat more patients.

It's called parauresis, and it is characterized by an inability to pee when other people are around.
