Medical Conditions That May Cause Slow Urine Flow In Men

Slow urine flow, a weak pee stream, and dribbling are all signs of male ageing. According to WebMD, urinary hesitancy occurs when a person has problems starting or maintaining a urine stream, which may cause the flow to stop before the bladder is completely empty.

Because of its subtle onset, this illness is often misdiagnosed until it develops bothersome symptoms like urine retention or an inability to urinate. Several factors, including those listed below, have been observed to contribute to this syndrome.

The medical name for a swollen prostate is benign prostatic hyperplasia. Because the cells that make up the prostate gland have begun to proliferate, this happens. Your prostate gland will swell as a result of these additional cells, putting pressure on the urethra and reducing the flow of urine. The kidneys and bladder are also part of the urinary system, thus they could be affected as well.

Issues affecting the nervous system

When the bladder is affected by issues in the nervous system, this condition is called neurogenic bladder. If the nerves connecting the bladder to the brain have been injured, the bladder may have trouble sending signals to the brain indicating that it needs to be emptied so that the brain can respond appropriately. This nerve damage can happen due to a number of different things, including: a neurological disorder like multiple sclerosis, a stroke, or diabetic neuropathy; a brain or spinal cord injury; an accident; or some other traumatic incident.

Infection, Third

Infection is listed by Healthline as a possible cause of prostate inflammation in males.

In the medical field, this condition is commonly referred to as prostatitis. Results from multiple research suggest that urinary hesitancy may be caused by a bacterial infection of the prostate.

Urine tract infections (UTIs) and s£xually transmitted infections (STIs) can cause a decrease in a man's urinary output.

Reticent Bladder

Paruresis, also known as shy bladder, is a condition in which a person avoids going to the bathroom in public because they are embarrassed to do so. Urine retention happens when the muscles of your sphincter, which open and close your urinary tract, swell. When they're done, you won't be able to urinate again. Any place where there are other people present, including public restrooms, private bathrooms, and even your own home, presents the potential for a similar incident to occur.
