Do lots of people get urinary retention, or is it unusual?

In brief: Unusual for women

Since women do not have a prostate gland, anatomical bladder outlet obstruction is unusual.
Possible causes could be prior pelvic surgery, especially incontinence surgery if it's a little too tight, or neurological disease, including spinal cord injury.
