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’ll go naturally (and running the faucet to hear the sound of running water can't hurt).

According to Smithsonian (blog), the saying goes that one person’s waste is another’s treasure. For those scientists who study urine the saying is quite literal–pee is a treasure-trove of scientific potential. It can now be used as a source of electric power. Urine-eating bacteria can create a strong enough current to power a cell phone. Medicines derived from urine can help treat infertility and fight symptoms of menopause. Stem cells harvested from urine have been reprogrammed into neurons and even used to grow human teeth. Find out more here.
