Bal tishaktzu and frequent urination


Okay thanks. Does bal tishaktzu apply to those who suffer from frequent urination? It would be aggravating to go to the restroom everytime the urge arises so I hold in until the bladder actually is full or close to full then relieve myself. Then I don’t really suffer much from frequent urination anymore. I usually can distract myself meanwhile and not focus so much on it. It seems doctors do recommend this for bladder training. I also read somewhere that if one can hold for 72 minutes it is also not considered bal tishaktzu. I also read one can delay until they find the proper facilities if it is feasible for tzneuis reasons.

This is a follow up for this:


If it is needed for medical reason it is permitted.
