Urination is innate. It seems like a trivial matter, but we must not be careless. Urination should also be done in the right way, otherwise it will endanger the health of the body. How is the best way for men to urinate? Andrologists suggest that people should increase the frequency of urination, no matter whether they want to urinate or not. The most scientific way is to urinate once an hour. Elderly men should squat down after urinating.
Elderly men can squat down after urination
Relevant data show that the probability of rectal cancer, bladder cancer cancer and prostate cancer of men who often urinate in squatting position is half lower than that of those who urinate in standing position. This is because squatting urination can cause a series of muscle movements and related reflexes in the human body, which can accelerate the elimination of intestinal waste, shorten the retention time of feces in the intestine, and reduce the absorption of carcinogens in the intestine. In addition, elderly men should also squat to urinate in order to avoid voiding syncope when they wake up at night to urinate.
Urinate once an hour
The incidence rate of bladder cancer is proportional to the time of urine retention in the bladder. This is because there is a carcinogenic chemical in the urine, which will destroy the muscle fibers of the bladder and cause it to become cancerous.

Squeeze the perineum after urinating
The male urethra is long, and it is easy to urinate unclean, resulting in urinary tract infection. So, how can we drain the residual urine? Some experts introduced two methods: ① After urination, you can squeeze your finger on the perineum between the scrotum and anus. This can not only discharge the residual urine in the bladder, but also have certain benefits for the treatment of chronic prostatitis. ② Do more anal lifting exercises at ordinary times to enhance the contractility of perineal muscles and urethral muscles, so as to minimize the residual urine in the bladder.
Don't sit down immediately after urination
When we dissect the male, we can find that his physiological characteristics are very special. That is, after the male urinates, the internal and external sphincters of the urethra will contract and close, making the urethra of the prostate form a closed cavity.
Sitting down immediately after urination will increase the pressure in the closed cavity, causing residual urine reflux and causing prostatitis. Therefore, men should stand for 3-5 minutes after urinating and then sit down.
