Urination: If this is new, it may be due to a blockage, such as from a stone, in your urethra. Generally accompanied by significant pain.

I am a 30 year old woman. I have been having a very weak urine stream for about 2 months now. What could be wrong?
Normal: Sexual activity can cause some swelling of the urethral tissue. In addition, the pelvic floor muscles which contract intensely, especially during orgasm, can stay hypertonic for a bit and this can affect urine flow. As long as it resolves in a few hours, no worries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually is: How much of a problem it is depends on the findings.By age 5 circumcised males may develop a narrowing of the urine outlet of the penis.It is less common for uncircumcised. If they have a mild inflammation at that site, conservative treatment with meds may improve it.Often it provides enough of a problem that the kid needs to have the outlet widened(dilated) by a urologist (under anesthesia ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Interesting.: Could be due to a syringocele, which is a urthral swelling from a partially blocked cowper's gland duct. Other possibilities are blockage of the ejaculatory duct or even temporary failure of bladder neck to relax. Bladder neck remains closed during ejaculation to all semen to flow out of the urthra rather than backwards into the bladder. See a urologist symptom increases in severity. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Weak stream: Weak stream is never normal, even if not accompanied by any other symptom [like burning + frequency + fever + flank pain]. It should never occur as a single symptom in young people. In older men, 50yo above, it can be simply bigger prostate then normal [and always also harder instead of being really really soft and not squeezing onto the ureter]. ...Read more

Prostate and physical exam all checked out good, very weak urine stream, difficult to start, stopping and starting, sprays..what's wrong?
Other things...: You may need to see a urologist who may do urodynamic studies, which can determine the force of your urination. In addition to obstruction, another possibility is a neuromuscular issue, where you cannot contract your bladder strongly enough. This is non-invasive and can be done as an outpatient in the urologist's office. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: If you are taking pain medications that are narcotic, muscle relaxers, or other meds that have the potential to make you sleepy, then yes. If you had severe spinal cord/nerve compression, you likely would not be able to void voluntarily. There would be saddle numbness and likely pain into legs as well if related. So I am doubtful that you have cauda equina syndrome with only the 2 symptoms listed. ...Read more
Weak stream: If you are above 50, this may mean big prostate that presses and squeezed the ureter shut. Or if young, it can be a prostate infection and urine infection. Urine infection in men and women cause burning sensation when urinating, but also increased frequency and difficulty to urinate. If accompanied by fever and chills, then it is kidney infection that can lead to blood infection and death. ...Read more
