  • How much urine do you usually void?

    I just wanted to know how much the average IC sufferer usually voids. By amount, you can use fluid ounces, such as one cup (8 ounces). I use the term "usually" to mean...when you are NOT holding it in for an extended period of time, also, when you are not just voiding a little bit to alleviate discomfort. I just want to know basically because I want to know at what amount people are actually voiding their bladders. Thank you.

    I would guess a cup or less when I'm feeling okay. If I'm flaring, a half cup.

      I have no idea about it in fluid ounces, but before my Interstim trial I voided 90-150 cc. With the Interstim in place sometimes I can go up to 300 cc!!

      *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
      *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
      *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
      *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

          Measuring

          I usually void anywhere from 4-7 ounces. If I hold it until it is really ouchy, then I can go to 9.
          For conversion factors 30cc is equal to about 1 ounce.

            About 1 to 1 1/2 ounces. Once in a while 3 ounces.

              Before starting bladder retraining, I had to keep a diary and my usual void was somewhere between 6-8 ounces.

                On a good day, 6-8 oz. On a flare day, can be 1-2 oz each time.

                My doctor says healthy people void 12-16 oz. Hmm. I don't think I've ever held that much, even before IC.

                  If I drink enough water it's usually just under 16 oz (2 cups). If I DON'T drink enough water, it's usually about 8 oz. Duh, does this tell me to drink more water??? LOL It would dilute the urine, but we all get busy and forget.
                  Hope this helps!

                      Thanks for the responses on a personal and private matter. I am a curious person, especially about a disease that I have (and you have), that not much is known about, so I am just asking to help me and maybe others. Thank you.
