Several such cases are reported on the pages of the British Medical Journal. There are cases of three girls who required hospitalization with a ruptured bladder. Moreover, drinking shortly before the happened alcohol led to such an outcome. This may be due to the fact that alcohol increases the volume of urine produced in the body, simultaneously dulling the desire to relieve themselves. If you add active dancing or a minor injury here, there really is a chance of rupture of the organ, doctors admit.
In the case of an adult, the bladder can hold up to 550 ml of urine. When an organ ruptures, urine can enter the abdominal cavity, which is accompanied by pain in the lower abdomen. Experts consider bladder damage unlikely if you endure the urge to visit the toilet for a long time. However, rare trips to the toilet threaten the development of diseases affecting the urinary system. If you endure often, there is a possibility of incontinence, writes “Word and Deed”. There is also a risk that a filled bladder will empty without a person's desire.
