Problems with a weak urine stream or trickle are often associated with an enlarged prostate, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). This occurs as men age and the prostate gland grows larger, potentially obstructing the urethra and causing difficulties with urination. Anyone with an enlarged prostrate will tell you that what used to be a seamless stream when urinating is suddenly an intermittent start-and-stop process with a weak flow. What results out of this is a slow trickle before it begins and in between, and when done, you struggle to aim into a large toilet bowl, but it hits everywhere except its target spot. The result is a messy toilet you just left behind for an out-of-your-control medical condition, causing embarrassment. A toilet that is frequented by someone with an enlarged prostrate often emits a urine stench; it is as if the owner’s territory is marked.
Suppose you're looking for a solution related to toilet use while experiencing a weak urine stream or trickle. In that case, it might be more about comfort and cleanliness rather than directly addressing the medical issue itself. You can tackle these challenges head-on with a combination toilet and urinal, such as the innovative Ture Toilet and Urinal. This specially designed fixture offers a solution beyond traditional toilets, providing comfort and improved cleanliness. Incorporating a urinal component effectively addresses the issues caused by a weak urine stream. With the Combination Toilet and Urinal, you can enjoy a more convenient and hygienic bathroom experience, even in the face of prostate-related difficulties.
Here are a few suggestions for those with prostrate issues:
Leave raised toilet seats:Frequent need to urinate during the day and need to urinate more than usual during the night, and sudden urge to urinate may make it a better idea to leave the seat raised. Other symptoms include.
- Difficulty in starting urination (hesitancy)
- A weak urinary stream
- Interruption of the stream (‘stopping’ and ‘starting’ effect)
- A sensation of incomplete bladder emptying
- Urgency (the person has difficulty holding the bladder)
Bidets or hygiene aids:To ensure cleanliness, you may want to consider a bidet or a handheld bidet sprayer. This can be particularly helpful if a weak stream or dribbling results in cleanliness issues.
Incontinence products:If a weak stream or dribbling results in leakage, consider protective underwear or pads designed for urinary incontinence. They can help manage small amounts of leakage and protect your clothing and furniture.
Scheduled toilet trips:Instead of waiting for the urge to urinate, try going to the bathroom on a regular schedule (for example, every 2-4 hours). This can help ensure that your bladder is regularly emptied and may reduce dribbling or leaking between bathroom trips.
