I only pee on average 2-3 times a day, is this normal, or do I have a huge bladder?

I go when I wake up, sometimes mid-afternoon, and before bed. That's it! Doesn't seem like enough to me !

  • You need to be drinking more water. Ideally 6 8ounce glasses a day. It sounds like a lot but is only a quart and a half of water a day. You might consider restricting caffeinated beverages if you drink them. Caffeine is a diuretic.

  • I personally drink that much water (as the previous poster suggested); plus coffee and/or tea (I know it's a diuretic, but I can't help it) and I only pee like 4 times a day. Sometimes only 3. Morning; before bed, and may once or 2 twice during the day....

  • You're probably dehydrated, the poster up top is right. You need to drink more water.

  • Yeah, I don't know... My SIL has recently spent the day with me and has watch how much a drink, be it water, tea, coffee, etc and made the comment "If I drink that much I would never leave the bathroom". LOL; I don't think it's how often you go that you should be worried about what what it looks like. A well hydrated person's urine is going to be light yellow to clear. If it is NOT light yellow to clear then I would start drinking more water. As the first poster stated you should be drinking about a 1.5 quarts a water a day.
