Do people still use chamber pots?

Do they still sell them? I have to pee frequently at night and am wondering if I should get one?

They are only used in hospitals. Stick to using the toilet.

Tell your doctor about frequent night urination. It can be a symptom of a health problem.

32oz Snapple bottle are great to pee in. But if you have a toilet within a minute of walking you should use it.

And not sure if this was inspired by my recent answer about milk and how I pissed in bottles. I had cancer and went months without eating. I hurt. Moving hurt. Being lazy is not a reason to piss in Snapple bottles.

The only time I ever used a chamber pot was when I was a kid and went to visit the grandparents. They had no toilets and you had to use an outhouse. At night, you didn’t want to have to hike to the outhouse, so you took a chamber pot to your bedroom at night. If you used it, you had to dump and wash it in the morning.

You can get a urinal, at most pharmacies. I would recommend that you just get, and go to the restroom though.

Stop drinking two hours til bedtime. If it doesnt work, get checked out by a doc.

Assuming that you can move under your own power, it’s really less effort overall to just get up and go to the toilet.

Yes they do, & bedpans & mangles.

We were in Taiwan over break. While looking up some local restaurants, we found one called Modern Toilet. They serve their food in toilets and bed pans!

Yes. Rarely. Some “chamber pots” are just coffee cans.

Constipation also puts pressure on the bladder so it causes one to urinate more.
Check the above link for triggers as well as the link that follows that one on the page as well.

Tomatoes and cheese are causes too.
