Yes: Retention can be partial or complete. Obviously if one cannot void at all the bladder can only stretch so far until it becomes very painful. When someone can empty partially but leave more than 100 cc behind, then frequency of voids increases along with the risk of uti. The cause should be found- most older women have a fallen bladder, and younger ones can have spasms in the pelvic floor muscles. ...Read more

Thus, increased sympathetic tone from meds e.g. Sudafed, can cause retention inversely to the above. ...Read more
