Whats the fastest way to make yourself pee for a urine test

Not Medical Advice: There are a variety of methods to help make yourself urinate quickly for a urine test:

The first way is to drink a lot of water.

Drink a lot of caffeine, which can be found in tea, soft drinks and energy drinks. Caffeine is a strong diuretic and it produces more blood flow in the kidneys, causing the liquid waste to move into the bladder.

Lastly, try to focus your brain on something else so you will go naturally (and running the faucet to hear the sound of running water can't hurt).

If you find it difficult or impossible to urinate in the presence of others, either in their own home or in public facilities, you're one of the 17 million Americans with shy bladder syndrome or paruresis.

"Shy bladder syndrome is considered a social phobia by [mental health professionals], because the person who has it knows it's irrational," says Steven Soifer, MSW, PhD, author of the new book The Shy Bladder Syndrome: Your Step-By-Step Guide to Overcoming Paruresis.
