Is it ok to shred tears while peeing/poking?

So whenever I use the bathroom I shred tears, I don't know for how long but at least since I was 8, not cuz I'm in pain or something, but I don't know what is the reason. Am I the only one and is it weird or...

Help us keep this site organized and clean. Thanks!

  • Not sure what you mean by "poking". Are you saying you water-up every time you have sex?

    I suppose there might be some deep psychological trauma that means you associate urination with crying, but it could be physical.

    I'm not a doctor and I've never had this issue so I haven't looked into it, but I know control of the bladder's sphincter and the flow of tears are both controlled by the parasympathetic nervous system. (That's the part of our nervous system that controls things that normally go on without conscious thought: respiration, the motion of our digestive tract, and so on.)

    Sometimes wires can get crossed, so to speak, and it sounds like when you release your sphincter to urinate, you also trigger your tear glands. Not many people are happy to share the details of what happens when they urinate, tears when you pee aren't really a huge problem, and if it's been happening virtually all your life, most people might just assume it's normal. So, who knows? It might be very common.

    In any case, as long as there are no other troubling symptoms and it's not really bothering you, I would try not to worry about it.

  • That's strange, but if it was happening to me I don't think I'd worry about it too much. Especially since it's not hurting.
    If you want peace of mind though, go and see a doctor to make sure.
