Straining: Bladder outlet obstruction is the most common cause of difficulty initiating the urinary stream, while overactive bladder usually causes urinary frequency in small amounts. Medications like Sudafed can cause difficulty urinating as can certain neurologic disorders affecting the bladder. A urologist is best qualified to advise you.
