    How many ml does everyone urinate at one time?

    I've had to measure my urine output and it seems that I urinate about 30 ml. Is this normal for IC/PFD problems?

    Sorry, Folks--When I put ML...I meant oz.

    pee

    I live in Canada, not sure about the measurments in the states or wherever, but I alway measure my pee, and every time I ussually have an out put of 3- 400 ml. Which is a pretty fair size. There is 250 ml in one cup. I ussually get the urge to pee around 200- 250 ml and on a bad day it will be 100 ml. The problem with me is that even though I can hold that much in my bladder, I cant hold it for long. AT ALL so as soon as I get 250 ml in my bladder I have to go....
    25 yrs old,

    Flaring: 20-25 x's, raw feeling in my urethra just before urinating.

    On a regular day: My frequency is normal 5-8 x's

    I have little to no problems now with my bladder, unless I am very stressed out, I forget to take Elmiron for a few days, or I eat or drink something that I know is a trigger...(i.e) like eating a tomato or drinking tea.... Took a long time to get here, but it IS possible to feel good again I just want people who are new to know that IT CAN get better, and for every one person who is suffering, there are hundreds of others who feel GREAT because they have control of thier IC.

    What Works: Tylenol 3's, Pyridium, Elmiron (Going on 14 months now!) HOT showers!!!

    Medications/ Vitamins: Elmiron-100mg 4x's daily Tylenol 3's/Advil and PROBIOTICS!

    Thirty ounces is a lot --- that's almost a quart! When I'm flaring I start hurting worse at around a half a cup (4 ounces), but I can painfully hold around 12 ounces.

    I don't get up in the night to pee, so in the mornings, I go between 16-18 oz. During the day, it depends on what I'm doing- if I'm at work, immersed in other things besides thinking about my bladder, I can hold it 4-6 hours, and go a lot at once! If I'm at home though, it's every 2 hours-ish and I go 12-14 oz.
