There is nothing more comforting than using a washroom when you want to empty your urinary bladder. Imagine yourself holding your pee in because there's no washroom around and when you finally find one, it is definitely a wonderful feeling.
But have you noticed that sometimes you shiver after you pee? Doctors call it 'post-micturition convulsion syndrome'. It is just a fancy term for 'post-pee shivering' but what could possibly be the reason for it?
Let's find out here.
Not so common in females, but it may happen rarely.
But haven't understood the exact science behind it.
Since urine is released from the bladder and the bladder is the core organ of the body, it results in your core temperature being dropped down.
The temporary shivering is the response of the body to the lowering of body temperature.
It comes from within and you have no control over it. Just like how we close our eyes when we sneeze. It is regulated by our autonomous nervous system.
When we take a leak, we are obviously taking off our underwear in order to do so. This means we are exposing our private parts.
That's why you feel a slight chill after taking a leak.
Our body goes through so many physiological processes at one time and we're mind blown by just one.
