actually, your urine is sterile until it reaches the urinary meatus and exits your body. it's not recommended to drink your own urine, but if you are in an absolute survival situation and have no alternative, you can drink your own urine to sustain yourself.

Can you get sick from drinking your own urine?

No humans would not get sick from drinking their own urine. my little brother did it when he was one and he didnt get sick. Actually, it is entirely possible to get sick from drinking urine (yours or others). Urine contains waste products from the body which are being purposely excreted, and re-introducing them is unhealthy. However, consuming small amounts is generally very unlikely to cause problems. In fact, in certain cases where lack of water is of a life-threatening concern, consumption of urine can help keep one hydrated. Overall, though, urine is a body WASTE, and is not beneficial in any way.
