Bladder and its Function
Urine drains from the kidneys which then go down to the ureters which then get stored in the hollow muscular organ called bladder until urination. The bladder has two main functions i.e. storing and expelling the urine. When the urination process is about to start the bladder muscles contract and the bladder outlet and sphincter muscles relax to allow the urine to pass through the urethra via which it leaves the body.
