How much time do you spend in the bathroom each day? For whatever reason...nature calling, washing your hands, fixing your makeup or avoiding a co-worker.

The answer that was most popular was 4 or 5 times a day with women often going more times than their male counterparts. Seriously...I mean who counts? Other than maybe your Boss. The results of that question in a YouGov survey:

Over 3,000 people were asked how many times they use the bathroom on an average day.  Here's what they said . . .

The most popular answer was four or five times a day with 34% of the vote.  12% said three times . . . 6% said twice . . . and 2% of people said they only go once a day.

Neil Grafstein, MD, an assistant professor of urology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City was queried by CNN for a recent story and his reply:

The sensitivity of your bladder also plays a role. Some people heed the call of nature at the slightest urge; while others don't feel the need to empty their bladder until its fuller.

Realize too that it can depend on what you are consuming.  Caffeine as well as alcohol are considered bladder irritants and can cause you to visit the facilities more frequently.
