Prostatism: Enlarging prostate with age (don't see your age) can certainly cause a weak stream, and at some point may need to be treated with surgery to open up the urinary flow. It's normal to have some difficulty getting flow started immediately after having an erection.

Get it checked: We don't know your age.It may be prostate problem as you have been having other symptoms you did not state.If you are concerned get it checked by your doctor or a urologist
