In brief: No

It is not normal to have difficulty urinating in menopause.
However, it is more common to see this problem in women with pelvic organ prolapse, infections, certain neurologic disease processes, tumors and in women on certain medications which is more prevalent as women approach menopause. You should see your doctor for evaluation of difficulty with urination. Do not assume this is normal aging.
