In brief: Not that I know
If you use opioids, it usually causes urinary retention-difficulty voiding.
One relevent question is if you are voiding a higher volume or urine overall; or just small amounts more frequently, implying inability to fully empty bladder. Your answer may be more complex depending on setting.
