Many Men Have Trouble Passing Urine Male Bladder Health

Bladder Problems in Men

Sooner or later, almost all men will experience Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS). Mostly these are caused by incomplete bladder emptying.

Do you recognize any of these symptoms?

  • Nightly visits to the toilet (nocturia)
  • A weak stream when urinating
  • Increased frequency of urination
  • Leaking of urine
  • Sex-related problems

You Don't Have to Suffer in Silence

Men are more likely to be reluctant to seek medical care and often suffer in silence. One reason for not seeking help is that these symptoms are often perceived to be a normal part of aging. This isn't always the case.

If you are experiencing any of these common bladder problems, the best place to start is by speaking to your healthcare professional. LUTS can have a strong impact on your overall well-being and quality of life, they have even been found to increase the risk of depression.

The good news is that there is a simple solution.

Men and Intermittent Catheterization

We have a vision. All men with bladder problems should be able to improve their quality of life. Intermittent Catheterization (IC) is a great solution for many symptoms and diagnoses, and it doesn’t involve either medication or surgery.

If your bladder is holding you back, IC is the second-best way to urinate, as it mimics the natural course of events. It’s an easy technique to learn and can be practiced anywhere. It helps you to empty your bladder completely and puts you in control of your own well-being.

When you have passed the first hurdle of learning a new routine, IC becomes a perfectly natural part of everyday life, and you will gain new freedom to do the things you want.
