I am experiencing urinary dribbling and abnormal urine stream. Recently catheterized during surgery could this have caused my issues?

Urethral stricture?: It sounds like you might have a urethral stricture, which on rare occasions might result from infection or irritation from a catheter. Prostate problems are the most common explanation overall, but uncommon at your age. For sure see your doctor soon about this; s/he probably will refer you to a urologist. ...Read more

Have a week urinary stream sometimes, usually middle of night. I have urinated frequently all my life. On a muscle relaxer but noticed here and there before, but believe I was on prednisone when it happened before. Hope it’s not prostate related?

Doctor can evaluate: It is not normal to "urinate frequently all my life." It's also not normal to have a weak urine stream. One's doctor can evaluate to see if there is a blockage. It would be more reassuring if such a patient had gotten ultrasound and x-ray studies when younger (as in childhood), to make sure he was not born with a partial blockage in his urinary system. ...Read more

How long would a person need to have a urinary tract infection before the infection spread to their blood stream?

Varies: That's a tough question to answer because everyone is different. An untreated UTI can ascend the ureters and involved the kidneys (pyelonephritis). This untreated can lead to sepsis (infection spread into blood). Timing can depend on many things such as anatomy, organisms involved as well as time that antibiotics are initiated. ...Read more

Blad nck hypertrophy: Prostatitis is typically characterized by irritative voiding symptoms (yours are obstructive voiding symptoms) and pain. The dre very rarely is revealing in cases of prostatitis. You are too young for a typical enlarged prostate. Cystoscopy rules out urethral stricture. You probably have primary bladder neck hypertrophy. See a neurourologist to confirm. ...Read more

24 yrs old. Before most periods, I experience painful urination & urinary frequency/urgency. History of irregular periods. Never been sexually active.

See your doctor: Bladder & pelvic floor symptoms often are worse in the second half of the cycle. Some women have endometriosis in the bladder, which can cause the symptoms you describe. Get a workup for bladder infection, and if this is negative, get an evaluation for overactive bladder. If you are a smoker, this may include a cystoscopy to look for bladder tumors, although rare. ...Read more

Why do I have pain and urinary problems every time after sex?

Why do I have pain and urinary problems every time after sex?

Urethra irritation: Sexual relations especially when vigorous will irritate the urethra, as it is located just above the inner vaginal upper wall. Additionally, sex will introduce secretions into the urethra, which gives rise to symptoms of inflammation. Remember to forcibly empty your bladder after sex, to reduce the likelihood of an infection. ...Read more

What causes urinary hesitancy as I seem to have had it for the last year+?

Hesitancy: Diffuculty initiating the urinary stream can be the result of many things. In the older male it us often from prostatic enlargement. In a young male it can be simply a "shy bladder" or may be due to chemicals or medications making it difficult to relax the sphincters holding back the urine. Decongestants are an example of such medicines. Talk to your doctor about your symptoms. ...Read more

I am a 23 year old female. I was wondering if it was normal for my urine stream to be very strong?

I am a 23 year old female. I was wondering if it was normal for my urine stream to be very strong?

Not necessarily: As long as you have no burning when urinating or have red color (blood?) or other dark color or frequency of urination I see no need to be overly concerned. If you do have any of the above, make an appointment with your family physician. If by "strong" you mean malodorous it could be from the food you eat like asparagus. ...Read more

My urine has 2 to 3 streams simultaneously. I feel no pain. This started 3 days ago. What's causing this? Should I worry?

I might take a warm bath for a little while as there may be some local irritation and also may sure you drink plenty of fluids. Should it continue then I recommend you see your physician for further care.
