This feeling gradually builds till we believe we’re about to overflow, explained Doctor Jeffrey-Thomas.
“But that wave will come back down and it will settle. So the goal is to ride the wave so that we’re not giving in at that high level of intensity.
“It’s training your body to send signals more often. You’re perpetuating that cycle.”
By giving in once the wave of intensity has peaked, the body fails to build resistance, which could lead to more frequent urges throughout the night.
