The causes of difficult urination in men
A weak pressure and darkened urine usually indicate kidney disease. But there may be other reasons for these symptoms. To have an idea about the complexity of the body and its fragility, must be familiar with all the reasons of weak pressure of urine in men: inflammation of urethra. In this disease the swelling of the inflamed urethra is so strong that urine cannot pass in its lumen or passes with great effort. In addition, inflammation of the urethra accompanied by severe pain during urination.
Urethritis male gets infected during unprotected sex with a carrier of the infection. Its pathogen can be of various microorganisms, trapped in the body. In some types of urethritis even possible discharge from the urethra of mucus with an unpleasant odor. While itching in the urethra does not stop throughout the day.
The inflammatory process in the bladder. This disease more often affects women, but men also suffer from them regularly. This disease causing bacteria that ascends into the bladder via the urethra. Which leads to the logical conclusion: inflammation of the bladder is the consequence of not cured urethritis. That is, it is caused by unprotected sex or chronic inflammatory process in the urethra.
In addition, inflammation of the bladder may develop due to severe hypothermia or stress, especially if during this period the body’s immune system is significantly weakened. For inflammation of the bladder pressure, weak urination in men is accompanied by a sharp cutting pain in the bladder. Such pain is present in the female body at the identical disease.
Chronic prostatitis. Inflammation of the prostate gland in the chronic form, – hardly probable not the main cause of a weak urine stream in men.
This is due to the anatomical structure of the genitourinary system men. The fact that the urinary duct passes through the prostate and when it is inflamed and swollen, its parenchyma perelavlivaet it and does not allow urine to pass freely.
Inflammation and swelling of the prostate caused by various infections. In addition, enlargement and swelling of the prostate lead to sexual weakness, poor erection and infertility. In this regard, in any case, you cannot delay the visit to the doctor at occurrence of at least one of these symptoms. In men over 40,often there is a swelling of the prostate that also constricts the urethra passing through its parenchyma, as a consequence, weak pressure while urinating.
If the body is a metabolic disorders in the kidneys or in another part of the urinary system can form stones. It is a pretty solid objects of irregular shape, sometimes with sharp edges. If the stone comes out, for example, from kidneys, and starts moving through the urethra, it easily can become stuck, clinging to the wall with sharp edges. Urine in this situation is not just to flow with less force, but ceases to pass through the channel that leads to renal colic, that is, severe pain in the lower back. Sometimes stones damage the walls of the urinary channel, and then in the urine is possible to see threads of blood.
Various tumors may form in the urethra, ureter or the bladder, in this case, the pressure and the velocity of the jet decreases so slowly that the man immediately notices that the phenomenon of attention. In addition, the tumor is not accompanied by pain syndrome and complicate its diagnosis.
Innervation (or nervous tone) of the bladder may be damaged by reason of any physical or even psychological factors. For example, major surgery with General anesthesia or disorders of the nervous system in General. Various injuries can affect scarring and thickening in the urinary channels.
Weak urinary flow in men or women can be the effect of incorrect reception of a diuretic. This can happen from incorrect dosages or regimens of this drug. Difficulty in urination often occurs in people who actively abuse alcohol, chronic alcoholics.
How does difficulty urinating?
