The average bladder holds sixteen ounces (2 cups) of urine. ‘Having a small bladder’ is a common rationalization used by people who go to the bathroom too often.
–Chapters 4 & 5

It is considered normal to use the bathroom approximately every three to four hours (5 to 7 times per day), even with good hydration. We teach you how to overcome urinary frequency and make “bathroom mapping” a thing of the past. Stop having to shop for bathrooms when you go to the mall!  –Chapters 4 & 5

It is normal to sleep through the night without getting up to use the bathroom.  Older adults may get up once at night, and this is still defined as “normal”. However, readers of THE BATHROOM KEY can get rid of this one night void, too… once they learn how to do our “urge suppression techniques”.  –Chapter 5

Urinary incontinence is NOT a normal part of the aging process.   Urinary incontinence is very common, but NEVER normal at any age. Even celebrities (like Kris Kardashian Jenner) leak with laughing and running.  –Chapter 1

Incontinence occurs in men, teenagers, and women who never gave birth, like Rosie O’Donnell. Even women who have C-Sections with every birth are still at risk at developing urinary incontinence.  –Chapters 1 & 2

Elite athletes can experience urinary incontinence. It is common for runners, tennis players, golfers, and other athletes to leak urine while doing their sport, due to a lack of strength, endurance, and coordination in their pelvic floor muscles (between your “sit bones”). We’ll teach you how to make your pelvic floor fit, too.  –Chapter 3

If you are incontinent and planning to have more children, you don’t have to wait to do anything about it until after you are finished having children. You can treat your incontinence with physical therapy techniques anytime, even during pregnancy or between pregnancies.   –Chapter 3

Drinking less will NOT prevent urinary incontinence. Withholding fluids creates dark, concentrated, acidic urine that is irritating to your bladder, which could actually increase your risk of urge incontinence (leaking on the way to the bathroom).   –Chapters 4 & 5

Alcoholic drinks, coffee, caffeinated tea, cola, orange juice, and grapefruit juice can irritate the bladder and make incontinence worse. We give you dietary substitutions.  –Chapter 5

Going to the bathroom “just in case” is NOT a good way to prevent urinary accidents. By the time you leave the bathroom your kidneys have already made several more ounces of urine, so the bladder is never really empty and leakage is always possible. Voiding too often can create a frequency problem, as the bladder “forgets” how to stretch to hold a full sixteen ounces of urine. Correct this with proper “bladder re-training”.   –Chapter 5
