I know this is a lil TMI , but for some reason for the past week I only pee twice a day , if that much. Yesterday I only peed once , but got up in the middle of the night for my second pee lol. I don't have the urge very often so I'm not holding it in. I drink ALOT of liquids , coke , water , juice , milk , but I just don't hafta pee a lot. Do you think this is bad or dangerous? It doesn't burn or anything like that but my pee is very dark. Not sure if it's a UTI or what , I've had lots of those & this has never been a symptom... ?

Dark means it's concintrated it could be ether dehidration or UTI. Peeing only twice a day is not healthy cut out the sugars and caffine. Do a water purge for a few daws where you drink ONLY water. (when you eat don't eat any sugar)

I'm not sure but I think I heard once when your pee is really dark you're not gettin enough fluids??? or maybe not drinking enough water I think it's one or the other not sure though........... sometimes I pee twice a day too and my pee is dark but I don't really pay it that much attention

I'm just thinking if you drink enough it won't be dark. Stop everything else and just drink water to see if that helps. I hate water , but that's the first and last thing I do before bed is drink a full glass of it.

if you dont like drinking a lot of water try drinking tea.... my doctor told me it is just as hydrating as water is. but your pee shouldnt be dark, it means you arent getting enough fluids.

lol im preggers so im peeing like 3 times evry couple hours... i feel like i live in the bathroom!!

drink more water :)  increasing your water intake will improve your dark urine.

All the above posters are correct, drink more water.  Caffeine can dehydrate you.

If you are drinking a ton of fluids and still not urinating often maybe you are retaining water for some reason and should get checked out by a doctor.

Drink only water for a few days. (a cup of coffee or a glass of tea, but make it mostly water and cut out the sodas)

Not peeing can lead to other MAJOR issues!  TRUST ME!  I had the same issue.  I was dehyrated but did not feel it.  Are you tired too?  Sometimes, I am too busy to pee and I have a fistula so my systems act up (and they are embarassing, so I try to remember).  I think you need to drink more.  I am not much of a water drinker so I now drank flavored coffee.  It makes me pee and does not let me forget to go!  LOL!
