Urinary bladder

What is Urinary bladder?

This is where urine is collected before urination. The body produces urine continuously but we only urinate 2/3times per day because the body collects it here and only empties from when it is full. It is located in the pubic area. It collects and stores urine from both kidneys through the bladder and it is emptied through the urethra.
