Comment #1: Mictua

This is more along the lines of micturition, correct? (That is, the urine
is actually exiting the body?)

I hear that in medical contexts, "urination" refers to the process of
producing urine within the body (which is still a type of excretion, I
guess) and "micturition" refers to the typical process of that urine
exiting the body. These definitions are rather awkward since I can say
that I am currently urinating while sitting on my couch, because I drank
some water a bit ago, but I am (luckily/thankfully) not micturating here.
