Both men and women experience difficulty urinating at different times in their lives. Women experience this problem when they become sexually active, during or after pregnancy, and as they age. Men also experience difficulty urinating, particularly as they age. Some of the difficulties patients experience are the result of trouble with the bladder, an organ that stores urine before a person urinates. In older men, enlargement of the prostate can cause blockage, which results in decreased urine flow and the feeling of not being able to empty the bladder.


Both men and women can experience leakage of urine, and this is called urinary incontinence. For women, this problem often occurs after childbirth and may be correctable by medication or specialized surgical procedures. Men often experience leakage if the bladder does not empty well. This is often, though not always, the result of an enlarged prostate gland.
