Trble urinating.Get feeling of bladder fullness, & wen I go it trickles out slow & takes long time to empty.Causes for this?Child birth?Kidney stones?

Many possibilities: For a lady of 21, possibilities include urinary tract infection that feels like retention but the frequency & slow trickle are due to irritation when the bladder is actually empty. Of course recent childbirth could cause this due to local trauma caused by birthing procedure. Stones of bladder, not kidney, are possible though less likely.Meds used to decrease urine frequency&decongestants can do it. ...Read more

Can Overactive Bladder cause: constant feeling of urgency doesnt go away? occasional split stream urination?

Yes - see comments: Urgency suggests overactive bladder(OAB). However split stream suggest bladder outlet obstruction(BOO). Causes of BOO include BPH, urethral stricture, primary bladder neck obstruction, bladder neck contracture. It is common for BOO to cause OAB. BPH is present in only 8% of 30-40 year old men, so it's quite possible you don't have BOO, or have one of the other causes see http://bit.ly/1wHjHAy ...Read more

Classically, : Classically, the symptoms of a urinary tract infection involve burning with urination, needing to go frequently and feeling an "urgency" when you have to go. That being said, this is the most common presentation, but everyone is different and not everyone will have the same symptoms. Also, if you just started having symptoms, the burning is usually the first symptom to appear. Your best bet is to be seen by your doctor. They will be able to test your urine to see if you have an infection. If you do not have a urinary tract infection, they may be able to tell what else is going on to cause your discomfort. Good luck! ...Read more
