Hi, Unlike in infants that void involuntarily, urination in an average adult can be voluntary and usually depend on the state of hydration or presence of underlying condition. The volume of urine in the bladder that normally initiates a reflex contraction or urination is about 300 ml. This is around 3-5 times a day.
