Spraying stream if meatus large ;/or transverse. ...Read more

I have an often weak urine stream & split stream at times. I had a Cystoscopy he said all looked great! Any ideas? Is it just getting older? Thank you

Here is. ..: The mechanical changes such as size & degree of blockage of prostate and some roughness in bladder as ssen in cystoscopy (the urethra, especially prostate urethra, and the bladder) is not always linearly proportional to the degree of function, that is, how the relaxation and opening of prostate urethra and coordinating bladder muscle contraction may take place. So, ask Doc to gain some sensible. ...Read more

Pulling pain JUST before urine stream starts that dissapears as soon as urination begins, I've had this ever since my cystocele repair in 2015. causes?

Here are some...: How much has this pain before urine flow comes bothered you? If bearable, you would need to heighten your capacity of coping effort and live with it. By what described, the pain could be related to the surgically altered relaxation of muscles in or near urinary sphincter. If unbearable, be re-checked with the steps described in articles in http://www. Formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html. ...Read more

Pretty sure cystoscopy caused a urethra stricture. Slow urine stream, spraying half the time, hesitancy and ejaculation feels blocked 4 months notbetter

Get 2nd opinion: Why cystoscopy at 19yo? Get a 2nd opinion. Your Family Doc can review all your medications, both prescription & over-the-counter, plus dietary supplements, to make sure you're not taking something that's coincidentally making it more difficult to void. S/he can then refer to another Urologist (or go back to chat w/one who did cystoscopy). ...Read more

I have a weak urine stream. It often does the split stream. Had it checked twice. I was told most Likely scar tissue. Had prostate test. All good. Ideas?

I have a weak urine stream. It often does the split stream. Had it checked twice. I was told most Likely scar tissue. Had prostate test. All good. Ideas?

Checked how?: Hello, checking for slow stream should include:uroflowmetry done when your bladder is very full after drinking plenty fluids till you can barely hold it. This should be followed by bladder ultrasound to check residual urine.What scar tissue? Are you referring to stricture? If so, did you have cystoscopy? I assume you mean PSA by "prostate test".I hope you are seeing a urologist. Hope this helps. Good luck ...Read more

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

Can urethral stricture or conjested prostititis be painless? I've had a weak/split urine stream and semen during bowel movement for some time. Age 36

Can urethral stricture or conjested prostititis be painless? I've had a weak/split urine stream and semen during bowel movement for some time. Age 36

Congested prostate: Urethral strictures usually cause decreased flow, not usually painful unless associated with uti. I don't know how you can tell you have a congested prostate without symptoms. Weak stream and seminal fluid drainage during bowell movements can occur specially with constipation or severe straining with bm's. Voiding dysfunction can occur at times but more specific diagnosis will require an exam. ...Read more

I am experiencing burping, mucus in stool and abnormal urine stream. My burps taste minty and my urine smells like penicillin. I am not taking penicillin, what could cause these abnormalities.?

See a doctor: Most likely no single health problem is causing all these symptoms. Strong urine odor usually means dehydration, i.e. not taking in enough fluids. Other symptoms may be irritable bowel syndrome. Best to see a doctor and stop trying to figure it out on your own or through online resources. Good luck! ...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?

Spray: It is doubtful there is anything wrong, especially with no pain and the suddenness.

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.
Should you develop pain or not be able to urinate then GO to the emergency department. ...Read more
