How long does it take to pee after you drink water? If you’re well-hydrated and your bladder is full or close to full, it can take as little as five to fifteen minutes to need to pee after drinking water. However, if you’re dehydrated with an empty bladder, it can take as long as eight to nine hours before you need to urinate.
Why do I pee so much when I drink water? When you drink more, you’ll pee more. Your body is more than 60% water, so if you’re drinking the correct amount of water for your size, you’ll be drinking a lot of water.
What happens when you start drinking enough water? You’ll feel less hungry and may even lose weight. You’ll probably experience more comfortable digestion (less heartburn). Bowel movements might be easier and more regular. Your teeth and gums will be healthier and more resilient.
