The UK Paruresis Trust

Organisation name
The UK Paruresis Trust
Description
Paruresis is "an inability to urinate in the presence, real or perceived, of others". Common names for the condition are Shy Bladder, Bashful Bladder or Pee Shy. A medical description is Psychogenic Urinary Retention. It affects both men and women, of all ages and backgrounds. Sufferers are often called Avoidant Paruretics (or APs for short), meaning that their paruresis manifests itself in avoiding the situations that inhibit them from being able to pee.

The UK Paruresis Association was set up in July 2002, and it became a charity in December 2002. They offer internet based information and support. There is also a support group who meet in London every 3 months.
