This caused the "stream" to suddenly pull to one side. So if squatting to pee, suddenly it would go down my leg into my shoe! There is no way to change angle and make it work consistently - I've tried over and over and over. This autoimmune condition rare in young women, but affects a good proportion of women over 40, and can reshape (the term I prefer to "deform") the genitalia a bit. Causing odd effects like angled pee-streams. Later, I got sick in my adulthood, and for many years couldn't hold a crouch, but that's another issue, really.
This can be an issue for me too. I haven't been diagnosed with anything, but I'll look into it. There's no way to aim and I don't know why I started going sideways recently. I used to "hover" at public toilets (I always wipe up the sprinkle) but once the stream went sideways and ran down my leg it was so embarrassing. Now I wipe the seat, lay down toilet paper and sit. Thanks for sharing your experience Kim! I haven't been camping since this started happening to me but even before, it was always a sprinkly mess, so I only consider outdoor pee-ing to be a camping activity, and would just put up with feeling un-clean.
If it's every-day life, I will take the indoors option. It actually saves water if I don't have to shower and launder after pee-ing.
